Maximizing the space of your garden shed can make all the difference. The shed can be a multi-purpose storage area that holds everything from gardening supplies to gymnasium equipment. Spruce it up by adding a work bench, power supply, and plenty of additional storage shelves. If you can create more space through better organization, the shed can be a valuable asset. Provide hooks where you can, like on walls and ceilings. Then add optional easy access shelves. This can be a great way to keep clutter out of the house and help you make the most out of your garden shed.
On the opposite end of this spectrum, an unorganized shed defeats the purpose of having a seasonal storage unit. Not to mention the chance of exposing children and pets to hazards like sharp tools and a variety of toxins typically scattered about in a cluttered shed. If your shed lacks good work space and you’re not sure which pile is which, it may be time to retire the garden shed and just use the space for something else.
But if you want to re-organize and get the most out of it, here’s what you can do:
You’ll want to wear rubber or gardening gloves as you clean and organize harmful toxins areas. Things like snail bait, weed killer, and insecticides can be stored together, along with gasoline, propane, and strong cleaners. It’s not a bad idea to secure these potential hazards in a metal locker, just to keep them out of harm’s way. To finish the cleaning project, take a broom and knock out cobwebs and then sweep up any rodent droppings. If chewed entry holes have been made, use caulk to seal them up. Use an industrial vacuum to make a final sweep of the floor, walls, and ceiling. As you look around the interior of the shed you’ll see the eyesore has disappeared and you’ve reclaimed the garden shed.
