Having a well-maintained yard is important to every homeowner. For those who like to do a majority or all of the yardwork themselves, there may be a lot of tools involved. The home entertainer may host gatherings and parties in the backyard with furniture and decor that doesn’t necessarily need to be kept outside year-round. Storage space in the garage or the home may be scarce, so we have 4 solutions to keeping things stored outside when not in use.
Shelves are used everywhere inside the home, so why not try installing some outside too? It is easy to add some on the porch to display small plants and gardening tools. If pets are outdoors often, keep their toys and treats on the shelves. There are endless possibilities for adding shelves outdoors.
Many home and garden stores offer weather-resistant storage benches and tables to be kept outside through all seasons. Gardening tools, party decorations, outdoor furniture cushions and more can be stored inside of these functional pieces of furniture.
If the backyard is used often for grilling and an outdoor kitchen is included, be sure to build additional cabinets around the grill. This makes it easy to store utensils and tools to keep them readily accessible.
Shelves and benches are limited when it comes to the amount of space they offer. Lawnmowers and other large items can be stowed away in a shed in the backyard. Sheds are a popular item in home improvement stores and come in a variety of materials and colors to easily coordinate with the look of the home.
Implementing outdoor storage solutions will help keep the yard and porch tidy while keeping frequently needed items accessible. There are numerous options and some work better than others for individual homes, so assess and research the best choice for you.
