Many people neglect to maintain the garden shed. Not much time is spent inside it’s four walls and it is only used to access selected garden tools. During the winter months, when not much time is spent using the garden shed, it can get quite messy and cluttered.
Spring is in the air and summer is around the corner, meaning that a lot more time will be spent in the garden. Organising your garden shed will make afternoons spent in the flower beds a lot easier.
Here are a few tips to organise your garden shed:
Installing shelves on the walls of your shed can save a lot of space inside and make it easier to organise and access your tools. You can add floating shelves, adjustable shelving, free-standing shelves or even repurpose an old bookshelf.
Use plastic tubs and containers
Keep your smaller, loose tools in plastic tubs and containers. Label these containers and store them on the shelves for easy access. These nifty containers will help you keep your workspace neat and tidy.
Set up a tool hanger
Long-handled tools can be difficult to store. They tend to fall over when you lean them on the wall and can cause injury if not stored correctly. Install a tool hanger on the wall to keep rakes and brooms from cluttering the floor space.
Declutter the shed
While you’re rearranging your tools and installing shelving to make space for their containers, you may come across items that you don’t use on a regular basis. Perhaps you’re storing expensive power tools or specialised equipment that take up a lot of space but aren’t used often. Renting a self storage unit is the perfect solution to keep these items safe and secure.
