Homeowners face one significant problem when they are working on their landscape design space. You want to pack in as many features as possible, but where are you going to put all your outdoor equipment and tools? It can be challenging to strike a happy balance. While a landscaper can help work out a plan of attack, you can also consider these storage solutions below.
If you have a few bits and bobs you need to store outside, such as outdoor cushions and a few hand tools, then garden trunks from your local gardening store could be an option for you. Many homeowners put garden trunks around the outer edges of their garden where they will be out of sight and out of mind.
They can be metal, plastic, or wood, and often come with handles and a locking mechanism for security and portability. The best part about a garden trunk is they are affordable. You don’t have to invest too much money in outdoor storage if you don’t want to.
Many things a homeowner uses regularly can look unsightly in your yard. From the tangled mess of a garden hose to necessary garden tools they can all get in the way and look untidy. Wall boxes, which are storage boxes you install on your outside walls, could solve these problems.
You can place them somewhere discrete and put all those useful tools you own inside them. These boxes are often small but can transform the appearance of your outdoor area with minimal effort.
An entertainment area is often a must-have addition in any homeowner’s landscape design, but often at the sacrifice of storage space. Don’t make your relaxation spot any smaller; just get smart with storage. Bench seating can both form part of your patio and become a storage facility. The top can have cushioning, which then lifts to reveal a box underneath.
Bench seating comes in many shapes, sizes, and styles, which means you can have almost no trouble at all trying to find something to suit your property’s unique look.
If you don’t have any garaging, then you are going to need to get extra inventive with your landscape design. Without a tool shed or similar, you will have nowhere for the power tools, lawnmower, bags of gardening soil, or anything else you require for outdoor use.
Tool sheds, believe it or not, don’t have to be a significant investment. You can buy kit-set varieties from your local hardware store, or invest a little more and get one that’s made of wood. Depending on the sizing, you might have to check with your local council regarding permitting.
Storage can work in your landscape design, but only if you think outside the box. Try to come up with a few solutions of your own, or talk to your local landscaper to see what they recommend.
