Everyone who has a garden no matter how small it is needs somewhere to keep the equipment needed to take care of it. Things like lawnmowers spades forks ladders have to be protected from the elements and a shed is the perfect answer here. It is a good idea to have shelving in a shed if at all possible so that spare cans of paint weed killers fuel for the lawnmower and other dangerous chemicals can be stored safely out of harms way and out of reach of children and animals. Sheds can be large or small and it is astonishing how much can be kept in quite a small space if it is properly organised.
The type of outdoor storage boxes you choose will depend on what you need to store and what the climate is like where you live. Outdoor boxes will generally have to withstand lengthy exposure to the sun as well as other elements like rain wind and even snow. Waterproofing is a major concern as you dont want either the box or its contents to be ruined by water damage. Generally plastic and fiberglass offer the best waterproofing allowing them to withstand even the most extreme elements.
Aluminum is not the ideal material for outdoor storage boxes as it doesnt stand up to the elements well. It is prone to rust and corrosion and can even cause corrosion in other metal objects stored inside it. There are some designs that incorporate aluminum within other less corrosive materials such as bamboo or rattan but metal objects like garden tools can still rust if stored within one of these aluminum lined boxes. The bottom line when it comes to outdoor storage is that you need to find something that you can work with and that will last for as long as possible.
A growing trend for outdoor storage sheds is to buy sheds made of molded thick plastic materials. These are excellent low cost storage shed options that need little to no maintenance. Plastic storage sheds are waterproof and theyll often be specially treated to resist color fading from the sun. Many of these come in easy snap together kits and some of them have features such as pre-molded notches which allow you to install your own wooden shelves too.
