Buyers guide to garden storage…

We’ve all been there, chucking garden tools, toys and outdoor furniture into the corner of the back garden promising ourselves that one day we’ll get it organised and stored correctly. Then, life just seems to take over and it soon gets forgotten about, very quickly becoming an overgrown mess that you again promise yourself next time it’s sunny weather you’ll tidy…

This summer why not check out some of the newest and reasonably priced outdoor storage items, from sheds, log stores and wipe clean waterproof boxes. Follow through with your promise and find the storage solution your garden has been waiting for.

Firstly knowing what you need to store:

There are all sorts of items that may require storage, from gardening equipment, furniture, BBQs and not forgetting the kids bikes,they all need a home in the garden.

B&Q they have a huge range of different storage options available to order online and either get delivered to home or pick up in store. Some of their offerings include…

  • Chests and Boxes
  • Shelving
  • Sheds
  • Log Stores

Most of their storage options have either an apex or pent roof to protect from any rainwater damage that might arise.
From clever pent roof sheds that have one side lower than the other in order to drain water away from the front of the structure to apex roofs that have a raised middle section to make a triangular shape and drain water away on both sides of the structure.
