Smart Garden Storage Solutions for Wet Weather

22 November 2023 · Sheds

It’s that time of year again when Mother Nature decides to surprise us with her watery antics. While we can’t control the rain, we can certainly control how it affects our precious garden tools, furniture, and equipment. That’s where smart garden storage comes into play.

As a Yorkshire-based business, we are no strangers to rain; using our expertise in garden buildings, we have put together this guide to help you defend your possessions from harsh weather conditions.

Rain-Proofing Your Garden: Top Tips for Wet Weather Garden Storage

Tip 1: Opt for a Reliable Garden Shed
A trusty garden shed is like a knight in shining armour for your garden equipment. We offer a great selection of sheds in various sizes and designs, making them suitable for gardens of all shapes and sizes. By keeping your shed well-ventilated, you will prevent moisture from building up and causing bothersome issues like mould. They make an excellent spot to store your lawnmower, shovels, and other tools, keeping them dry and rust-free.

Tip 2: Deck Boxes for Outdoor Furniture
Your garden furniture deserves some love, too. Deck boxes or outdoor storage benches are perfect for stashing cushions, pillows, and even smaller items like gardening gloves and pruning shears. These boxes are often weather-resistant and can double as extra seating when the sun decides to shine.

Tip 3: Wall-Mounted Storage Solutions
When space is at a premium, don’t forget to look up! Wall-mounted racks and shelves are excellent for hanging tools, hoses, and even bicycles. Keep your essentials off the soggy ground and easily accessible when you need them.

Tip 4: Consider Waterproof Containers
For smaller items like seeds, bulbs, and gardening accessories, waterproof containers are your best friends. Plastic storage bins with tight-sealing lids can keep these items safe from moisture and pests.

Tip 5: Keep Your Prized Possessions Indoors
Certain items, like delicate potted plants, might not appreciate a rain shower. Move them indoors or onto a covered patio during wet weather to ensure they stay healthy and vibrant.

Tip 6: Regular Maintenance
Lastly, don’t forget about regular maintenance. Check your storage solutions for wear and tear, particularly before the rainy season hits. Ensure that seals are intact, hinges are lubricated, and any drainage systems are functioning correctly.

Timber Sheds: Your Ultimate Solution for Protecting Garden Tools and Furniture from Wet Weather

Combine functionality and aesthetics with our top-quality timber sheds. When it comes to wet weather, they stand as the ultimate solution for storing and safeguarding your tools and garden furniture.

Natural Weather Resistance
Timber possesses inherent weather-resistant qualities. Many timber species, such as cedar, are naturally resistant to decay, rot, and insect infestations. This means your timber shed is well-equipped to withstand the challenges posed by wet conditions, ensuring the longevity of your stored items.

Exceptional Insulation
As mentioned, making sure your shed is protected from moisture is crucial to prevent damp-related issues such as stubborn mould and rust. Timber is an ideal material as it acts as a natural insulator, helping to regulate the internal temperature of your shed. This way, your tools and furniture will remain dry and safe from troublesome weather conditions.

Bespoke Sizing
With our expertise in outdoor building, we can craft bespoke sheds in various shapes, sizes, and styles to match your garden’s aesthetics and your storage needs perfectly. This tailor-made approach ensures you can get the most out of your shed. We also stock standard sizes that are suitable for most gardens, ranging from 4ft x 4ft and above.

Our timber sheds give off a timeless charm that blends in well with any garden space due to their beautiful natural materials. If the warm, earthy tones of timber isn’t for you, it’s as simple as giving your shed a fresh lick of paint to give your garden a fresh look. However, the original colour is extremely popular and becomes even more favourable when the wood naturally ages.

Property Value Enhancement
Opting for a high-quality timber shed can enhance the value of your property. Potential buyers often see the utility and appeal of a garden shed, making it an attractive feature if you decide to sell your home, especially if you give it the love and care it needs.
