If you are an avid gardener then it’s likely that you’re reading this article because you are running out of space options when it comes to working in your garden area. We all tend to accumulate many different tools and pieces of machinery over time that we use in our garden almost every single day. After a time, if we cannot find somewhere suitable to put these things then the garden tends to be a cluttered area and so it takes away from all of the hard work that you have been doing up until this point taking care of your plants, shrubs and trees. What you need is some garden storage ideas that will allow you to continue with the hobby that you love to do.
There are many different ways to create more storage space within your garden area and many people are now considering American barn sheds not only because they offer so much storage space but because they can also double down as an area where you want to keep animals for example if you live in the outback and your garden extends beyond the horizon. If you don’t have any animals then this could be the perfect storage space for not only your garden tools and ride-on lawnmower but for your truck and car as well.
This is just one way to create a lot more space around your property and the following are just some other top suggestions when it comes to creating and meeting your storage needs.
Invest in a garden shed
If you are the male of the species then it’s likely that you find it difficult to get to spend some quality time all by yourself. You could invest in a garden shed and turn it into what is commonly known as a ‘man shed’ and this is where you can while away the hours taking care of your tools so that they are sharp enough for the days that lie ahead. A garden shed can be so much more if you just start thinking outside the box and it is definitely the perfect place to store your tools and gardening equipment.
Storage boxes are the best
There are a number of different storage boxes to choose from in many different materials and colours but if you want one that can really blend in then you could make a purchase where the box itself also doubles up as a bench to sit down on and relax after a hard day working in the garden. If you want it to blend in beautifully with your flowers and shrubs then you could choose one that has a more rustic feel and offers the best storage facility.
An upright storage shed
The beauty of this type of shed is that it doesn’t take up an incredible amount of space on the ground but it is perfect for storing tools that are taller than others. Your garden tools like your shovel and rake can fit in there beautifully as can your rubber boots and gardening hat to keep the sun out of your eyes. It could also act as a focal point in your garden because you can paint it any colour that you like and you can encourage some of your plants to grow on and up it.
Make the most of the wall space
It’s likely that you have a wall around your garden to keep out the neighbours and to keep out their pets as well. You have all of this wall space going to waste and so it makes perfect sense that you would want to incorporate wall-mounted garden storage. It is so easy to add multiple hooks to your wall and you can hang so many things on it. You could also invest in some shelving and make sure that you give it a coating to protect it from the harsh weather that we experience sometimes.
Recycle your old furniture
Rather than trying out that dress or wardrobe, you could incorporate them into your whole garden area and they will supply you with lots of storage space but they look incredibly good as well. All pieces of wooden furniture can be easily painted to give it that rustic feel and look. You can store so many things hidden within drawers and cupboards that can only be seen when you open the doors. It’s likely that you are kicking yourself right now because you probably threw away an old dresser that would be perfect for putting potted plants on and it would’ve been able to provide you with lots of storage space.
You now have five options when it comes to creating more storage space for yourself and you can also incorporate a lot more shelving in your barn shed or in your garden shed. These are very easy to put up and so you can use your DIY skills and have a lot more storage space in the blink of an eye. All it takes on your part is a little bit of thinking outside the box and you will surely come up with many different kinds of storage solutions for your garden area. You can always use your bins for storage and for a better aesthetic appeal, you could hide them with some kind of bin storage that will give you an excuse to start using your DIY skills again.
