Using Sheds for Garden and Lawn Care
Summer is going to be in full swing soon. Many of us have been doing the basic spring lawn care maintenance chores for at least a few weeks now. Good lawn and garden care requires a lot of tools. Where are you storing those tools? Are they taking up space in your garage? Do they all come tumbling out of the closet when you try to open it up? If the answer to that is yes, then maybe it’s time to consider getting a garden shed.
The Basic Tools
When most people think about lawn and garden tools, they usually think about lawn mowers, weed whackers and shovels, but there’s a lot more than that. Here in Cache Valley, bigger items like rototillers, irrigation pumps, and other equipment are quite popular. For people who have a few acres of land to take care of, there are even full-on ATV’s and rideable lawn equipment. Where do you keep this?
Getting More Specialized
Cache Valley springs are notoriously unpredictable. We can get frosts way late into the season in between weeks of unusually warm weather. A lot of people run electric lines out to their gardens to give heat to seedlings, letting them get an early start on planting. This adds tools such as grow lights, heat mats, among others.
Seeds and Fertilizers
Tending to your yard and garden also requires grass seed, flower bulbs, fertilizer, pesticides, and other materials. These bags can be quite heavy and you don’t want to be carrying them too much. If you have to move them from your garage all the way to your garden, that’s a lot of extra effort and strain on your back.
Organize With A Garden Shed
You don’t want your tools taking up space in your home or garage. A garden shed can help you by giving you a place to put your tools. It’ll be right there near your garden so you won’t have to go far to get them. That way, whenever you go out to work in your yard and garden, they’re always right there. No more having to fight with other things in your closet or garage to get them out. Best of all, the shed still provides cover from the elements.
Don’t worry about your tools being left out in the rain and the sun, getting all rusty and broken.
With a shed, you can make sure all of your tools are organized. Add some hooks to hang the tools from so you can see them. Shelves will let you store boxes of the ground so they’re protected moisture. Our lofted sheds give you space to store bags of compost, bark, and fertilizer that’s out of the way. Because all your tools are stored in one place, you never have to worry about forgetting where they are. Whenever you need them, they’re right there, easy to find. This makes taking care of your lawn and garden a breeze.
Make Your Garden Shed Gorgeous
With a bit of work, you can make a garden shed into more than just tool storage. You can incorporate your shed into your yard by building a small garden around it. Plant a few trees to give it some shade. Choose colors that match with your house and complement the flowers and shrubs you plant around it. Hang a few flower baskets from the porch. Build a gravel path to it so you don’t have to get dirty walking out there and also add some visual variety to your yard.
With the right combination of elements, you can make your garden shed look like it really belongs there instead of being added as an afterthought. If you go a step further and make the shed a permanent building in your yard, this can even add value to your home.
