I have a wooden shed that has a metal exterior on two sides and wood on two sides. What is the easiest way of anchoring it to soil? I'd love links to anchors and as exact installation instructions.

The best way to anchor a shed, in my opinion, is with concrete piers. They're inexpensive and not too difficult to put in: Drill or dig the holes, tamp some gravel into the bottom. Slide a sonotube in to form it up.

The Building Code requires that 'building frames be anchored with minimum 1/2" diam. anchor bolts spaced not more than 2.4 , o.c. unless a structural analysis of wind and earthquake pressures shows anchorage is not required'

For sheds smaller than 10 sq. M there may be an exception as typically no permit is required.
