Storage sheds are often available in wood, metal and plastic designs - as is the case at Garden Buildings Direct.
Wooden storage sheds offer a traditional, authentic design and boast the potential to be utilised in a number of different ways beyond storage, such as a workshop. Metal sheds are incredibly heavy-duty, thanks to reinforced galvanised steel. They also offer maximum privacy with windowless designs. Plastic sheds are long-lasting with a uniquely modern design that will compliment the vast majority of gardens.
Often cited as one of the biggest advantages of plastic storage sheds, they pose few maintenance requirements as they don’t corrode, rot or develop rust. As a general rule, the main upkeep for a plastic shed simply involves scrubbing it with warm soapy water to make it look as good as new.
With this in mind, you can expect a plastic shed to comfortably last for at least 20 years, and often well beyond this timeframe.
Keter is one of the best brands in producing storage solutions which provide great value for money products, without compromising on quality, as evidenced by high customer satisfaction.
Keter focuses on producing a number of essential outdoor products, offering garden sheds, tool boxes, plastic furniture and much more.
The vast majority of outdoor storage boxes sold by retailers are waterproof. This is because nobody wants a storage box full of essential gardening tools, cushions, toys and so on, which aren’t able to remain dry when subjected to rainy weather conditions.
Waterproof storage boxes are brilliant for preventing a garden from becoming full of clutter, offering a convenient unit to store items which would otherwise be littered all over your garden space.
If you want to keep your outdoor furniture looking pristine for as long as possible, then keeping it protected from rain and frost is highly recommended.
This can either be achieved through buying a cover large enough to entirely shelter all necessary furniture, or through a garden storage unit. Garden Buildings Direct offers many storage solutions which can comfortably house your furniture and much more!
Outside of having individual covers for cushions which can be taken on and off as required, the most suitable solution is to merely move your cushions on and off your patio as necessary, placing them in your storage unit during times of extreme weather such as heavy rain or biting cold.
As a general rule, you should avoid storing things in your shed which can be considered highly valuable or can easily be misplaced, such as official documents, jewellery or money.
Beyond this, items which may be negatively impacted by the high temperatures which can occur within a shed should be kept away, such as food, flammable substances, paint and alcohol.
