Gardeners all love having great tools to use. Whether they happen to be potting equipment, lawn equipment, power tools or hand tools, you need to have a place to store all of your tools and equipment in. (Your garage is certainly already full).
What you really need is a good storage shed for storing all your tools in. Storage sheds are available in many different styles and price ranges. Sheds are constructed out of metal, vinyl or wood materials. The floors of the shed can be bare ground, made from a pre-fabricated kit or they can be made with poured concrete or wood. You may even want to consider pre engineered metal buildings.
Before you go out and buy a shed or build with my shed plans, you first need to decide how big you need it to be. The second thing is deciding where you will place the shed. When deciding how much space you need, don’t forget about lawn chairs and various seasonal items that will need to be stored over the winter.
Make a list that includes everything you need to store inside your shed. Use this list to help you find a large enough storage shed for your needs. I’ve never heard a gardener complaining about having too much storage space. However, people tell me all the time how they should have built or bought a bigger storage shed. Bigger is definitely better when it comes to sheds.
You also need to think about where you are planning to put your shed. In order to successfully install it, you need to have a level and firm piece of ground. It is also important that it is in an area where standing water doesn’t collect.
Some people put their sheds a long way from their houses to keep them out of sight. However, these days there are many attractive sheds that are available that are also sturdy and functional. You could even construct a shed that will match your house, cottage or barn style. The shed should be placed in an area that is close by to make it easy to access your garden tools and equipment.
To improve the appearance of your shed, add shutters and windows. This will make it more attractive. Many people these days even put in landscaping around their sheds along with a walk path leading up to the shed door.
A path helps to prevent ruts from forming in the ground and keeps your feet dry as well.
Inside the shed you can add a grinder to sharpen your tools with and a potting bench.
Add power to your shed so you can run a small refrigerator, radio, television lights, fan and power tools.
You may also want to install a small sink or water faucet. This will come in handy whenever you need to wash your hands or for mixing various chemicals, fertilizers or potting soils.
Storage sheds are really growing in popularity. They are a great place to store all of your gardening tools and equipment in. They also can be a very nice place to get away from the house and relax in.
