Garden sheds are the ultimate storage solution for overcrowded homes. Whether they’re made from metal, prefabricated or built from scratch, outdoor sheds offer an excellent and secure place for all your gardening needs. These small structures often house tools and equipment that are either too big to fit inside the garage or simply too impractical to keep indoors. Unfortunately, their versatile nature also means they are extremely prone to clutter. To avoid this problem, here are some organization tips to consider:
Wall Storage Space
Walls can be utilized for additional shelving to hold cumbersome tools and keep them off the floor. Prefab tool sheds with metal panels provide enough structural strength to hold a wide variety equipment, such as shovels, garden hoses, hoes and rakes. Smaller items can be stored on hooks fastened to the wall.
Installing a pegboard sheet is a nifty little DIY trick that offers plenty of storage options. Line one wall with a pegboard, and use hooks to hold bags, planters and other smaller items that can easily be stored along the vertical space. You can also use the pegboard to hold up additional shelving for more space. Be careful, however, of using pegboards to hold heavier equipment.
Colors and Labels
Use labels to easily identify the items stored in your shed. Smaller materials, such as extra metal supplies, nails, screws and even hand tools can be stored in labeled baskets or toolboxes. Alternatively, you may also want to use color codes for quick identification.
