Are you tired of looking at that rusty old shack at the corner of the backyard because it looks nothing like the lush green and beautiful garden surrounding it? Although it is an important part of the garden which is used to store all the gardening tools and equipment, fertilizer, gloves and many more useful stuff, most homeowners simply forget to pay attention to maintaining it. Select the perfect day when the sun isn’t all that mercilessly hot and find the time to clean out the humble little shack with the help of your family to start the process of giving it a much-needed upgrade.
Make it large
The shed you built several years ago when gardening was a ‘simpler process’ might not be big enough to accommodate all the tools and equipment that needs to be stored. If yours is a brick walled shed, it will be particularly troublesome to demolish because it’s going to make the entire garden an epic mess. Instead, you can purchase nifty steel sheds for sale Melbourne, so that you can connect it to the one you already have and create more than enough room for your gardening storage purposes.
Store supplies in containers
Last thing you want is to walk into the shed in search of a packet of seeds and accidentally step on a metal rake and injure your foot. Such accidents can happen if unique storage sheds are messy and disorganized. Think ahead and store all your supplies in a categorical manner in locations where you can easily access. Store the few items that you regularly use in a container or satchel closer to the door and use labelled container and drawers as often as you can to make finding them easier.
A reeled garden hose
One of the biggest struggles all gardeners face is when pulling out the garden hose from within the clutter of the shed, a frustrating process during which several other items might also fall, drag along or break. Put an end to this madness by storing the garden hose in a separate location, preferably reeled into a coil and connected to the wall, away from the other tools so that watering the garden will become a more bearable task.
Storage hooks for the items you wear
You may use caps, hats, aprons and shirts when gardening and storing these along with the other items is simply not hygienic. Why not connect a board with some S hooks on the door of the shed where you can neatly hang all the above-mentioned items? This way you can free up more space for other supplies as well.
