Tiny garden

I have a very small garden south facing, but partly shady too, in the north cotswolds. I only have this garden at the front, no back garden, shed or outside storage. But I love my plants, I plant seeds, take cuttings and my cottage is often overflowing with seed trays and pots! Now I have retired and want to make changes, but a bit scared, I have given away many of my plant 'off spring' and still loads of pots waiting for new bulbs already bought (again!), I cannot resist the gorgeous colours. I wonder if I should squeeze in a tiny shed and maybe remove the tiny lawn to tidy my space which means losing more plants. Any ideas??

    I've been toying with the idea of replacing my shed with storage benches, to give more planting room! This type of thing, although it might be better to build something myself (brick with a sleeper top perhaps?)

    How small is small? Any pics? Removing the lawn would increase your planting space, make the garden more usable and remove the need to store a mower... but if you do have space... a lawn is nice to have.
