Types of Outdoor Storage and Organization

The great outdoors isn't so great if you can't keep track of all your hobby- and work-related items. It can be downright frustrating to go on a fruitless hunt for a rake, a softball, or an air pump. But whether your yard is the size of a postage stamp or you have a few acres to tend, outdoor storage and organization pieces can come to your aid. Those include bike storage sheds, deck benches or storage benches, deck boxes, firewood storage, storage cabinets, storage sheds, and tool sheds.

Bike Storage Sheds

Small in height and footprint, bike storage sheds may rest on a platform to protect bikes. They should be lockable as well as spacious enough for racks to either hang bikes or keep them upright and safe when not in use.

Deck Benches or Storage Benches

Deck benches are sturdy enough to be used as stools or benches; the lids hinge up to reveal open space to store balls, water toys, extra cushions, or other outdoor items that need a home when not in use.

Product Features

Product Features

Outdoor storage pieces quickly become fixtures in your routine and in your landscape. If you want to find outdoor storage pieces that last for years, add beauty to your outdoor surroundings, and adapt to the changing preferences of your family, then take product features into consideration as well as the type of outdoor storage items. Those include size, locks, and material. To help guide your outdoor storage shopping needs, use this quick overview.

Size

Before you make a purchase or decide on a type of storage, do a thorough evaluation of the outdoor items you have. That way you'll be able to determine the best fit for your needs.

Locks

Many outdoor storage items, such as bike sheds, sit outside on their own. Therefore they should have adequate locking mechanisms to ensure that your tools and hobby items stay safe.

Material

Outdoor storage items may be made from a range of materials. Bike sheds might be plastic or wood, storage sheds might be made of metal, and some storage pieces might be fabricated from plastic.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Because of the expected life span—and the possible big investment—it's critical that you take time to thoroughly examine purchase considerations. For example, where you locate a storage shed can change the look and feel of your backyard, and firewood storage that's not big enough for a winter's supply of wood quickly becomes a source of frustration. Review these three factors—outdoor durability, flexibility, and location—before you finalize your purchase.

Outdoor Durability

Any item that will spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year outside should be able to withstand precipitation and temperature extremes without fading or degrading.

Flexibility

Outdoor storage should be able to change as your lifestyle and needs change. Take kids' gear, for example: Plastic scooters transition to trikes and then to bikes, so a bike storage shed should be able to grow and adapt.

Location

Because your outdoor storage items will probably need a permanent home somewhere in your yard, location is key. You must have space to place it where you like and be able to easily access it when needed.
