Garden storage – our pick of the best

Our gardens provide great additional living space, but it’s a good idea to add some garden storage to keep your space neat and tidy. Garden storage gives you the ideal hideaway to stow away all those tools, the lawnmower, bikes and unused garden furniture.

You may want a storage box if you have a small garden and no space for a shed, or perhaps you need something in addition to your shed for extra storage, or closer to your house on the patio. There may be a few garden tools that you want to keep handy without having to search in the depths of the shed, such as a kneeling mat or a trowel and fork set.

Consider a larger, more secure unit if you’re a keen gardener who needs to house tools and a lawnmower or a cycling enthusiast with an expensive bike that needs a safe home. If you have a young family with lots of outdoor fun and games, a more slimline shed might best suit your needs. Perhaps you’re simply looking to store the cushions from the garden furniture set, in which case a stylish rattan-effect storage box would be perfect. However you choose to use your outdoor space, we’ve found a clever garden storage solution.
