As the evenings draw in, the weather becomes cooler and the dormice tuck themselves in for the winter, it seems a great time to start thinking about garden storage and tidies to prepare for the new season. Gardens are wonderful spaces that allow us to unwind, relax and connect with nature. But, to keep our gardens looking their best, it's important to have the right storage solutions in place. This not only helps to keep our gardens tidy and organised, but it also ensures that we have easy access to the tools and equipment we need to maintain our green spaces. So, to help you out, we thought we would put together a list of garden must-haves, perfect for this time of year!
Whether you prefer curling up in front of the wood burner indoors or prefer wrapping up in front of a crackling fire outdoors - one thing is certainly needed for both! A log store to stock all your firewood and kindling.
Not only do log stores make an attractive and organised storage solution for your wood, but there are also many technical advantages such as:
- Keeping off the Rain! Did you know that moist wood is not only more difficult to burn, but it will also produce excessive smoke when burning which in turn can lead to creosote build-up?
- Preventing ground moisture. Without a log store, the bottom layer of your logs will get wet. Meaning rot and mould could spread through your supplies, making them unfit for purpose!
- Promoting good aeration. Meaning a better burn, quicker heat and thus more economical!
I think we can all agree there is nothing quite as unsightly as a wheelie bin, right? If you agree, then fear no more! Wheelie bin stores are a fantastic solution to convert that once grisly corner of your garden into a much more visually appetising affair. They are also brilliant at:
- Deterring garden pests and vermin. (Because we all know Mr and Mrs Fox can be partial to a midnight snack).
- Combatting any nasty odours! Keeping the outside air as it should be… Fresh.
- Stopping vandals and thieves. All our bin stores come complete with bolt locks on the doors.
- Preventing wind-toppled wheelies – nobody enjoys chasing an AWOL tin can down the road on a windy day!
Whether you use your bicycle for sports, recreation or just transportation. One thing is for sure... Taking care of your two-wheeler is an important job all year round. Find below just a handful of reasons as to why a bike store is the perfect storage solution for your garden:
- Adding security! According to crime data, over 376,000 bicycles are stolen in the UK each year! That’s roughly one every 90 second and more than half of these thefts occur in and around the home, most notably from gardens and passageways. Rest assured, all our bike stores come complete with either locks, bolts, or pad bolts to ensure you are never part of that statistic!
- Protection from elemental harm. As we all know, leaving your bike out in the wet and rainy weather can cause dreaded rusting to your bike. This doesn’t only look bad but can seriously hinder your bikes performance! Did you also know that direct sunlight is damaging too? Harmful UV rays directly affect the paint work and other parts of the bike!
- Aesthetic appeal. Leaving bikes stacked up together can make areas look very cluttered, unorganised, and impassable. A bike store is the perfect solution to keep things looking coordinated and neat. (Not to mention prevents scratches and marks from bike to bike)!
In conclusion, log stores, bin stores, and bike stores are three simple and effective storage solutions for your garden. Each of these storage solutions serves a unique purpose and offers a range of benefits to help keep your garden looking its best.
Log stores are perfect for those who use logs as a source of fuel. They not only keep your logs dry and protected, but they also add a touch of rustic charm to your garden. Bin stores are a great way to keep your bins out of sight and out of mind, helping to improve the overall aesthetic of your garden. They also help to keep your bins out of reach of animals, which can be a problem in some areas. Finally, bike stores are ideal for those who want to keep their bikes safe and secure while freeing up valuable space in their garden.
When choosing a storage solution for your garden, it's important to consider the size, style and material of the storage solution. You should also consider the overall aesthetic of your garden and choose a storage solution that complements your existing garden furniture.
In summary, log stores, bin stores and bike stores are simple and effective storage solutions that can help keep your garden looking its best. Whether you use logs as a source of fuel, need a place to store your bins or want to keep your bikes safe and secure, there's a storage solution out there to suit your needs. So, why not invest in a storage solution for your garden today and enjoy a more organised and beautiful outdoor space?
