Pool equipment is another potential headache. The chemicals and equipment used for cleaning the pool can all be kept locked up in the same place as the filtration unit but it is nice to have pool toys near to the water. This is especially true if there are children. A good-looking deck box or large storage bench will hold all the pool toys and it makes tidying up very easy to do as well as providing extra seating by the pool.
Outdoor storage sheds are wonderful all purpose solutions to getting more storage space. They are particularly useful for storing outdoor tools and gardening supplies because they allow you to keep the tools and supplies out of the weather yet not get your house dirtied up in the process. Most outdoor storage sheds are excellent places to store your lawn and garden tools. Things like extra potting soil fertilizer the lawn mower and hedge trimmers even shovels buckets rakes and hoes can easily and safely be stored in an outdoor storage shed.
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.
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.
