We all know how easy it is to end up with a situation when you cannot close the shed door, due to the many items that are inside. The lawnmower, gardening tools, bikes and BBQ are all stored in the garden shed, and with that in mind, here are a few useful tips on making the most out of your garden shed space.

  • Create A Tool Wall – This is easy to do if you cut the right sized piece of plywood, then lay that on your table and place tools in suitable locations, using clips to fix them. Once the sheet is finished, remove all the tools and fix the plywood sheet to one of the shed walls, then reattach the tools, one by one. Just how big this is would depend on how much wall space you have, and with a little forethought, you should be able to find a spot for every tool. This will also free up working surfaces and drawers, where you can store other things.
  • Shed Shelving – Ideally, this would be made from an interconnectable system that has two rails screwed to the shed wall, into which brackets can be slotted, then planks of wood used for shelving. If your shed has seen better days, or you don’t have one, there are garden sheds for sale by Spanbilt Direct, one of Australia’s leading shed supplier, who can easily be found with an online search. Shed shelving should be tailored to make the best use of wall space, and with the right dimensions, you would be surprised at how much you can store this way.

  • Tool Racks – Ideal for the gardening implements, racking makes the most out of wall space and with the right height, you can store brooms, rakes, shovels and spades against the wall, leaving more space for other items. You can easily make a tool rack from a disused pallet and with a little improvisation the racking can be tailored to fit the space.

  • Reuse Old Furniture – If you have an old chest of drawers that has seen better days, rather than taking it to the tip, why not use it in the shed? Old cupboards or cabinets can really make a difference, so think twice before disposing of old storage cabinets.

  • Hooks – Hooks can be hung from the ceiling at intervals, and you can hang just about anything, by putting small items in bags that be hooked up off the ground. Fixing a few aluminium struts to the ceiling will give you as many anchor points as you need and with short string, you can ensure that the items are safely tucked away.

If you are looking to acquire a garden shed, you are advised to buy a steel unit, as this will stand the test of time and will also be a secure place to store garden tools and equipment. There are online suppliers of steel garden sheds of all sizes and shapes, which will ensure that you can find something of the right dimensions.
