Sheds are more than just somewhere to stash the gardening tools. They’re a place to brew up a warming cup of tea (or something stronger) on a cold day. Somewhere to kick back and read the news. And, with a little creative thinking, your shed can evolve to become every bit as unique as you are.
It may not be prime real estate, but one’s shed is a much-loved asset and in so many cases, a thing of great pride. There is an inseparable bond between a bloke and his shed!
Kitting Out a Garden Shed
Let’s leave the wackier ideas aside for a moment (though do take a quick look at the link – your jaw will drop!). Just what should every common-or-garden shed include to make life easier for the gardener that uses it? Here are a few ideas.
Hooks: And lots of them! Hooks everywhere, on every wall. Oh, and on the ceiling for good measure. A well thought-out shed will have hooks for every garden tool so they’re easy to identify in one sweep of the eye. By neatly presenting your tools, there’s none of that grappling around in a darkened corner to find the right fork. Easily-accessible tools will save time and considerable faffing. Hooks = tidy shed and tidy mind.
