Garden Storage Ideas For The Summer

The summer is well and truly underway and you might have plans to spend more time in the garden with new furniture, garden games or time spent gardening. But it is likely that your shed is already full of clutter and you need more space for all of your garden things that you don’t want to keep inside the house. This means you will likely be looking at garden storage ideas for the summer, well we have the perfect guide. We have put together some tips on how you can maximise the space in your garden to store all of your furniture and garden tools.

Upcycling Storage

One way that you can make the most of your garden space this summer is to upcycle some storage solutions so that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. One of the reasons that your shed is full up is likely to be the fact that it isn’t organised properly and you have a lot of clutter lying around the shed. Using old storage boxes or jam jars to store screws and other bits and pieces can help to save a lot of space in the shed. If you have room down the side or behind the shed that is easily accessible, you could also make use of this space by storing lesser used items down here. Plastic or glass storage will not rot or weather like metal and wood either so you can leave them outside.

Hanging Storage

Another great way to maximise storage space in your garden is to make the most of hanging space for storage. This is a great way to store items that are cluttering up your shed by making the most of your vertical spaces such as your walls, fence or even the side of the shed. These areas can often be sheltered partially to provide some protection from the weather for your belongings. It can also add a bit of character to your garden and even make things more accessible. There are plenty of hanging storage brackets to help you utilise wall space. You could even use garden shelving ladders propped up against a wall instead of hanging this directly to the wall if you prefer.

Furniture Storage

If you are looking for new garden furniture then one great way to make the most of your space is to look at buying garden furniture with built in storage space. There are loads of benches and garden seating that come with built in storage underneath which can be perfect for seat cushions or any other items you might want to store here. You could also add a cushion to a sturdy storage box and this could be used as additional seating or why not use a storage box as a table for placing your drinks while in the garden. Using furniture with built in storage can save you a lot of space in the garden this summer.

These are just a few ideas on how you can save storage space in your garden but there are plenty more. It can be difficult clearing out clutter though and sheds can sometimes become dumping grounds for belongings that don’t fit inside your home.
