Do you own an untidy garden shed?
Now that summer is here its time to get the most from your Garden shed, your sanctuary and you little piece of solitude in a busy home, in this article sheds direct look at how to organise an untidy garden shed
Its time to start clearing away all that winter clutter and get organised, open the garden shed doors and know exactly where everything is.
- Firstly, empty your shed. You can start to organise your items as you take them out, so wait for a clear dry day before you take everything out. While you are removing everything from your shed, throw out anything you know you will no longer have a use for – it will free up space in your shed. If it looks like it is going to rain while you are emptying it, get a tarpaulin ready to cover your belongings.
- Once your shed (or sheds as the case may be) are empty, check them out for any damage from water or pests. If you notice something that doesn’t look right, Sheds Direct can help you out. You’ll want to be looking for signs of water entry, damage, making sure all chemicals are sealed.
- Storing tools can be a messy job. Store tools that aren’t used often in a box or crate, and often used items on hooks or shelves.
- Messy sheds often are the result of not enough room. If you don’t have enough space to store everything, it might be time to upgrade to a dutch barn or purchase a second shed. Sheds Direct can help you with what you need for your new shed.
Now comes the sorting time – it’s time to put items back into your shed. But how to organise them so you don’t end up with the same mess you started with. You could install shelving in your shed to give you more off-the-ground space, or install peg board to hang things on. Alternatively, you could hang hooks for heavier items and Velcro straps for lighter items. Some of our past customers have come up with some other great ideas including hanging a shoe rack on the wall to store lighter items, install overhead storage racks to store heavier, less used items, or use a length of rigid plastic piping attached to brackets to help store garden stakes, fishing rods or other long narrow items.
