Suggested Garden Tools for a Properly Stocked Shed

Apr 6, 2021Our Products

As planting season approaches, it’s time to take stock of your portable shed and collect everything you need to keep your lawn in pristine—or at least decent—shape throughout the summer. To help you out, we’ve compiled a quick list of garden tools and items that will make life easier this season.

Shelves and other organizational tools

First, you should outfit your portable shed with an organizational system. Install shelves to add more storage space and invest in clear plastic bins so you can easily identify small garden tools and equipment. You might also want to add a pegboard so you can hang your rakes and shovels neatly instead of piling them in a corner.

The basics

Of course, this is a garden shed, so you’ll need rakes, shovels, spades, pots, seeds, potting soil, pruning shears, gardening gloves, scissors, and other items often kept for lawn care. Take a close look at each item and check that all equipment is in working order. Sand wooden handles, throw out cracked pots, and make repairs as needed.

Trash bags

You’ll need large trash bags for cleaning up leaves, weeds, tree branches, and dead shrubbery. Your portable shed is the perfect place to keep a box.

Solar light

A solar light is an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way to illuminate your storage space. Plus, it means you won’t have to wire the building for electricity.

Gardening toys

Gardening toys are necessary for any parent of small children. Your little ones will always want to “help” in the yard, so you’ll need kid-sized gardening gloves and safe, plastic garden tools for them to use. When you’re done, let your children store their “equipment” in the portable shed with yours, so they feel especially grown-up.

Of course, if you don’t have a garden shed yet, you know who to call! Our sales staff is ready to help you customize and order the right building for your backyard.
