Garden sheds are a common sight in many backyards, from the humble Colorbond shed through to charming, ornate mini buildings made from a combination of steel and timber. You might think that a garden shed is a must because everyone else has one but that’s not necessarily true. Garden sheds are incredibly useful but they’re not for everyone. Here are some hints and tips to find out if they are for you. If you need any more advice, just have a chat with your local sheds
Are You a Keen Gardener?
If you’re a keen gardener, or even if you like to garden at all, a shed is a very valuable addition! It’s the perfect place to store all those gardening tools and materials – shovels, mowers, whipper snippers, trowels, fertiliser, mulch, and insecticides and so on. Your gardening gear will be much more easily accessible and it will be kept safely out of the weather.
Do You Need More Space?
Many people think that the garage is all they need in order to store the mower and their gardening stuff but trying to fit this stuff in an already crowded garage can cause a lot of unneeded frustration. After all, who wants to have to move the car out of the garage just to get to the lawn mower? Save the hassle by using a garden shed to give you the extra space that you need.
Do You Like to Tinker?
Many people find relaxation comes in the form of tinkering about. This could be working on an engine, building or restoring a piece of furniture, painting an original work of art, or even just sitting down to a video game. Many houses simply don’t have the space for “tinkering” and this is where the addition of a garden shed is invaluable. Just build one that is a little bit larger than you need for storing your stuff and you’ve got your own personal retreat in the backyard. And, really, who doesn’t like having a space that’s just for them?
