The Purpose of Garden and Storage Sheds

There are many books at your local building supply stores about building storage sheds. I bet you are wondering what are the purposes of these structures? You have a garage so why would do you need storage a facility separate from the house to store garden and equipment items?

Do you store items in your attic or basement that you use only during the holiday seasons? Are there items like your children's baby items and art work being stored because you do not want to throw them out? In that garage are you storing things you use to work on your cars and hand tools for working around the house?

This is why a garden or storage shed would help you out by providing extra storage space.

Garden sheds are mainly used for storing your garden equipment, tools, and garden materials. Items like spades, hoes, shovels, rakes, fertilizers, and mulch are usually stored in such a shed. Other items that people store include edgers, leaf blowers, and lawn mowers where the garden shed is large enough.

Most people locate storage shed close to their house to make it easy to get in and out of it. But some locate it further away from the house to ensure they reduce the possibility of tracking dirt and mud into the house. Another benefit of have it located further away from the house is quiet time and fewer interruptions.

Another benefit is keeping those gardening items separated from automotive items and tools used to make home repairs and improvements. This will help when selecting the right tool or item for the job. When you want a garden spade you know to go to the garden shed where it is stored for example. When you need a tool to work on the car you will go to the garage for the item. Having separate places for your garden equipment and supplies can serve a very useful purpose.

You can also have a separate storage shed and garden shed for separating garden items and tools for the car and home improvements.
