Backyard Garden Sheds
Garden sheds are always a useful addition to the garden. A garden shed is a unit that is used for storing garden tools, fertilizer, lawn mowers and other items used to care for lawns and gardens. The purpose of a garden shed is to keep these items within easy reach and out of the destructive power of the elements. Rain and sun can damage garden tools by making them brittle and causing them to rust. In order for a garden shed to serve its purpose, it must remain organized. Garden sheds are usually located in the back of the yard, out of the way of traffic. Items not stored in the garage or house are often placed in the garden shed. Most garden sheds are locked with a padlock to prevent theft and small children from accessing harmful items.
Garden sheds are available in many sizes, styles, and materials. Some common materials used to build garden sheds are concrete blocks, wood, metal, plastic, and vinyl. Garden sheds can be freestanding or attached to a house or other outbuilding. Garden sheds often accumulate items that remain unused for long periods of time. If these items haven’t been used in a year or longer, chances are good that they won’t be used again. Consider donating these items or throw them away. They take up precious space in the garden shed that can be used to store other items.
