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.
The main concerns when choosing a storage box are durability weatherproofing and overall look. You want something that will protect your belongings in all kinds of weather and also fit into the design of your patio/garden/deck area. Storage boxes for outdoor use comes in many different materials including wrought iron aluminum plastic fiberglass and wood and each can have a unique look.
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.
While exposure to sunlight can bleach wood some people actually like that look so it isnt a huge issue but durability can be. Despite careful waterproofing wood remains highly porous and can still be damaged by water over time. Another option for outdoor storage is aluminum or wrought iron. Wrought iron is most often used in the garden and can be quite decorative. It is extremely durable able to endure rain snow or sun but it is also extremely heavy making it very difficult to move.
