Do you remember packing things into your shed after last summer? Your barbeque, patio furniture, lawnmower – that sort of thing? Knowing that you weren’t going to be using them over the winter, they probably got wedged into your shed between your parasol and hedge trimmers. After that, anything that ought really to go into your shed, like wellies, or boxes of bird food, bikes or footballs and other child-related detritus have probably accumulated on your patio or just outside your back door.
Now is the time to reclaim that space and make your garden beautiful again. It’s not quite warm enough to dig out the lawn furniture and parasol, though, so space in your shed may still be highly limited. Instead, to tidy your garden and make it a place where you want to spend time when the weather improves, consider investing in a few key storage ideas that are both practical and attractive.
