A Potting Shed for the Serious Gardner
If you are having problems storing your garden tools after you have completed your projects, then it may be time that you start looking for a potting shed for them all. It may even be that you are putting off acquiring more gardening implements that you need, because you don’t know where to store them properly.
Also, being a serious gardener, you will want to maintain your tools properly. From hosing off the dirt and mud to drying them and oiling them for the prevention of rust, every step is important. In this situation, any serious gardener will tell you that a garden shed is the ultimate thing for proper maintenance and care of your tools. If you leave your gardening tools outside, they will gradually lose their functionality, and if you put them in a garage along with the cars, bikes and other paraphernalia, you may lose them in the accumulating clutter. With a garden shed, you can not only maintain your tools decently, but you will also know exactly where they are when you need them.
So how do you start getting the right potting shed for yourself? To begin with, start making an inventory of your garden implements and the ones you plan to acquire in the future. Consider the things that you don’t have now, may be a tree pruning equipment, a riding mower? You will have to calculate the space for these.
A potting shed is a great addition to a garden. It is the best place to store items like the lawnmower, watering cans, pruning shears and other large equipment, and it also adds an attractive looking structure to your garden, especially if you go in for the natural wood ones with large doors and windows, with a veranda or canopy.
There is a large variety you can choose from online these days, in attractive designs, from small ones suitable for a small garden space, to bigger structures if you need a lot of room. You can even custom order the type or color of paint, whether you want to add a window or side door, or window boxes or a veranda. Later, you can add extra shelves inside for storing soil bags, plant pots, and small garden tools. Some garden sheds are designed to look like small cottages or cabins, with a greenhouse area for the sprouting of small seeds.
It is important that enough light should stream into a part of the potting shed for you to start growing small plants and seeds before you put them outside. If enough sunlight is available, you can even start them ahead of the planting season, as, being inside; they will be protected from harsh weather conditions.
