Garden storage ideas
From classic sheds to unique storage ideas, discover how you can tidy away your garden essentials like bikes, bins, garden tools or furniture.
Store away in sheds
A traditional choice for bulky garden items like chairs, lawnmowers and garden tools. They’re available in multiple sizes and materials, including metal or plastic - so there really is a shed to suit any outdoor space.
Stylish storage boxes
Choose a storage box for smaller spots– they’re surprisingly spacious without taking up too much of your garden.
Alternatively, go multi-functional with a storage bench. Perfect for tucking away smaller items, and can be stylishly used as an extra seat. Pick between different colours, styles and materials to match your garden décor.
Bike storage ideas
If you have room, choose a shed or storage cupboard big enough for a bike. It'll offer protection during bad weather, keep them secure and you won’t have to worry about muddy floors.
Covers and racks
For smaller spaces, be creative and stand your bike on its end with a bike rack. Or pop on a bike cover to protect it from the elements (or help hide it away if stored indoors).
How to store your outdoor toys
Top tips to make them last...
When bad weather arrives, look at how you can pack away your outdoor toys – not only will this keep your garden tidy, they’ll protect them from the elements.
Bigger items can stack nicely in a shed or storage cupboard, or opt for furniture and trampoline covers. Store smaller items and lawn games in storage boxes and benches – making it easier to get them out when needed.
Other outdoor storage
Looking for something a bit more creative? Or perhaps you don’t have the space for a shed? No worries, there are lots of alternative (and creative) ways to tidy up.
Stack it up
With more of us using a log burner for those cosy winter months, it’s a great idea to stock up with fuel throughout the year. Dry wood is better for burning, so keep it neatly stacked until you need it.
Showcase on shelves
If you do have a shed or storage box, easily pop in some free-standing shelves for extra space. Or look for weatherproof materials such as wood or metal, and make a feature outside of your decorative accessories.
Upcycle new ideas
Don’t waste unwanted desks, bedside cabinets or chest of draws. With a little bit of TLC, these can become functional and stylish items in your garden – adding extra storage and a touch of personality.
Leave bits hanging around
By utilising your walls, you can cleverly display your plants, lights or garden tools – making an authentic rustic feature, whilst your items are tucked away. A great idea for small spaces too!
