Certain kinds of garden box come completely waterproof – plastic ones for example. Others, like wood and metal, depend on the craftsmanship and the style.
In general, you should steer clear of keeping anything of high value in your shed. So, money, electrical items, jewellery, etc. But there are other things you should keep out of there:
• Wooden ones will be more waterproof with an oil-varnish seal and a plastic lining will help too.
• Metal boxes need a good seal all the way around and you should be prepared for rust as well – some good quality metal all-weather paint will help with that.
The best compost bins are the all singing, all dancing tumbling ones with temperature control, but you can get good results with a classic wooden compost bin too.
Try and enclose the sides to retain heat and make it a minimum of 1m x 1m x 1m so you can still turn it.
Composting is a great, eco-friendly way to create your own compost, so give it a try.
No, log stores do not need doors – there’s no real reason for them. Having an open log store may cause your wood to get damp in the rain, but having no doors increases air circulation and helps them dry quicker.
For waterproofing, plastic is 100% better than wood for a garden box. They’re also much lighter, therefore easier to move, a they’re more durable too, so they’ll last longer. However, wood may be better if you’re looking for a more traditional look in your garden as it blends with the nature around it.
The most effective way to store your logs is to invest in a wooden log store. Our log storage is specially designed to make sure your logs stay in the best condition throughout the year. It is important that logs are kept somewhere dry with good ventilation.
Keep your logs stacked tightly together to protect all sides of the log from the elements. Take time to plan the perfect place for your log store. Choose a flat surface that is nice and sheltered, but avoid tree cover as water can drip down off the branches and causes unecessary moisture.
Every home comes with a set of wheelie bins, but they're not the prettiest of essentials. If you have a smaller garden space, you might want to consider some garden storage to hide away your bins and prettify the surroundings.
There are plenty of outdoor storage containers that are designed specifically to house outdoor bins. Outdoor bin stores come in a variety of styles and materials, so you can find one to suit your garden. Consider painting your bin shed to match your fences, perhaps install a planter on the roof so that you can make the most of every space.
Most plastic storage boxes should be fine to store outside, however, some plastics can become brittle in colder weather. It is always best to look for specially designed outdoor plastic storage as it will provide better protection for the contents.
Everyday plastic storage boxes make an excellent addition to your shed storage. Perfect for keeping things neatly organised and tidied away. If you have any old plastic containers around the house, why put them to good use and organise your tool shed?
Although it may seem odd, it is very important for a log store to have an open side. In order to keep the wood dry and in its best condition, it needs plenty of airflow and ventilation.
Slatted sides and an open front are usually the most popular style of log store, these allow for plenty of air to reach the wood and avoid humidity. Any surface rain that hits the front of the logs will simply evaporate with the wind, or be dried out by the sunshine.
