A metal storage shed for your garden is the perfect addition to any outdoor space, especially if you have plenty of items you wish to store away securely and out of sight. Metal sheds are fantastic as they provide a different level of robustness and longevity than timber and plastic sheds, they are durable, weather resistance, and secure. If you have recently purchased a metal garden shed, or you are considering it, you might be wondering what items you are best storing in it, and if there are any items that you shouldn’t store in your shed.
Using a metal shed as an outdoor storage solution provides you with the chance to store away a wide range of items in secure, enclosed space. There are many different shapes and sizes to choose from, allowing you to match with the rest of your garden furniture and garden décor. Some are built with galvanised steel for greater durability and robustness, some are resistant to corrosion from the weather. There are some metal garden sheds that tick all these boxes.
What can I store in a metal shed?
We’ve all got garden furniture, tools, plants, and other items that can become an eyesore if they are just left out in the back yard or garden. A metal garden shed provides you with the perfect solution to keep these items safe.
Lawn mower – if you have the right size shed you can securely store away your lawn mower once you have used it to trim the lawn. It is great to have a secure storage solution where you can easily pull a lawn mower in and out and put it away from the elements and to store it away safely.
Gardening equipment – a metal garden shed is a great place to store away your rakes, shovels, watering cans, spades, soils, fertilisers, and other gardening equipment that you use to make your garden and yard as pretty as you possibly can.
Bin storage – most of us have bins for regular waste, recycling bins, as well as food waste bins. Leaving bins outside, whether in front of your home, in the garage, down the side of the house, or in the back garden, doesn’t look very nice. Things can look even worse if bad weather or animals manage to tip the bins for all the garbage to fall out. Finding a bin storage solution is crucial.
Garden furniture – patio furniture, tables, chairs, and other bits of furniture for your garden, can sometimes be left outside as all-weather fabrics make this possible. Over winter especially, and sometimes at the end of each night in the summer, you might feel safer storing things away in a secure metal garden shed.
Garden toys and bikes – if you have children, it is likely you’ll have plenty of toys that are ‘outside’ toys for the garden alone. Bringing them inside takes up more storage space where you might not have much to play with. Keep things separate by storing them outside, along with kids bikes and other items that you want to keep safe from potential theft.
DIY Tools– you might not have the space inside your home to securely store away your DIY tools, such as a drill, hammer, saw, and maybe some high-priced power tools. If you are a lover of DIY and have loads of tools, your garden shed could be the best place to store them.
As you can see, there are a few different items, gardening tools and equipment that can and should be stored securely away in your metal garden shed. Storage solutions for your garden or yard provide you with a secure place to store away items that are expensive and that you want to keep secure, as well as a safe environment where tools, furniture, and other items can be stored away from the pressures and damage weather can inflict on then. If you are also always looking for good storage to clear away the ‘mess’ at the end of every summer’s day in your garden, a metal storage solution can be the perfect answer.
