Is your shed currently full of junk and things that you barely ever use? Well, if so, maybe it is time for a good old clear out so that you can make more use of this very useful space. The best way to use your shed is as a storage unit for all your important garden equipment and tools. It can also be used to houseplants in once the weather turns cold. Wondering what exactly you need to store in your shed? Here are some useful tools that need to be in there all year round.
As a gardener, you can never have too many plant pots! Even if you tend to sow your seeds and plant seedlings directly into the ground, you will really benefit from having a few spare plant pots of various sizes in your shed. If some of your plants ever grow too big for a certain patch of your garden, you can always dig them up and place them in a pot temporarily while you wait to prepare a larger section for them to go in. In addition, you might find it beneficial digging up some plants in time for the winter and putting them in pots in your shed so that they survive the cold temperatures.
Many people buy their snow throwers just before winter, but if you do not have one already, now is a good time to look for one, as you might be able to find one in the sales. You should buy one based on various factors, including its power and its size. Ideally, you need one that will fit in your shed! It is important to have a snow thrower in your shed all year round, as you can never quite tell when winter is going to start and end! Be sure to keep it inside so that it does not rust in the rain.
Fertilizer and Compost
Some gardeners tend to keep their fertilizers and compost outside as the weather will not affect them too much. However, it is generally a good idea to keep these materials inside. This will prevent any insects or rodents making their homes in them! Moreover, they will not turn mushy whenever it rains. If you have a compost bin, you will be able to bring that inside too. In fact, the warmer temperatures in the shed should speed up the decomposing process.
You will certainly have many tools for use in your garden and shed. Rather than have these all over in your shed making a big mess, you should keep things nice and tidy by investing in a toolbox. Just place all your tools in the box when you are not using them, and you will never lose or misplace any of them again! Moreover, your shed is guaranteed to look a whole lot tidier!
As you can see, there are lots of tools and pieces of equipment that your garden will benefit from. Make sure these are in your shed all year round!
