This guide explores creative garden storage ideas from handy deck boxes to weatherproof sheds – that keep your outdoor oasis tidy with a touch of style. Let’s dig into keeping your garden’s potential alive through smart storage solutions!
How to organise garden storage?
- Categorise items Group together similar items like tools, pots, fertilisers, etc. Consider storing by frequency of use or seasonality. Keeping categories tidy makes retrieving things easier.
- Use shelving Add shelves at different heights to optimise vertical storage. This keeps bulky items off the floor and creates more space. Prioritise shelving material that can handle weather and heavy items.
- Use hooks Install hooks and racks for organising long-handled tools both inside sheds and on external walls. Group tools by type for convenience.
- Maximise wall space Wall-mounted cabinets or shadow boxes allow the utilisation of vertical real estate. Great for small parts, gloves and accessories.
- Label Use chalkboard labels or weatherproof tags so you can identify contents at a glance. Keep an updated list of storage locations for quick reference.
- Store off the ground Plastic storage totes and deck boxes protect items from dirt, moisture and pests. Some have wheels for mobility or slide neatly under benches.
- Group by usage Position most-used items near the entrance for grab-and-go convenience. Keep seasonal products easy to access when needed but out of the way otherwise.
- Refresh storage annually
Do an annual check discarding unusable things and reorganising for maximum efficiency. Maintaining tidy storage saves time and money.
The key is embracing the vertical dimension through shelving and hooks to keep things high and dry. Labelling and categorising help turn garden chaos into tidy convenience.
