Whether you've got green fingers or not, keep your equipment to hand in storage boxes and cupboards. Tidy gardening tools away in a box that doubles as a seat, or choose a full-length cupboard for tall equipment. They'll keep your gear rust free and don't take up much room.
Looking for storage you can measure by the foot? Garden sheds come in metal, plastic or wooden finishes. And with spacious sheds, you'd be forgiven for turning it into a cosy little hideaway. If you fancy a bit of home-grown produce, install a mini or full-size greenhouse to the side.
Log cabins combine homeliness with nature. Pop one at the bottom of your garden for a rustic retreat. Catch more rays when the sun comes out with conservatories, which give you an extra room without major upheaval. Choose from Victorian and Edwardian, lean-to and traditional.
