As the colder weather sets in, you may be looking to finish the garden that you spent so long doing up in the Spring and Summer months. The Fall is well under way now, with Winter a few wee weeks away from being upon us. While we are still in the Fall period, you may still be lucky to come across some sunshine days, and it’s these days that you should be taking advantage of to get your garden completed and ready.
Looking toward your new garden furniture and even your plants, you need to find suitable storage for them to keep them protected from harsh and cold weather conditions. Many of the vibrant colour schemes you spent so long carefully selecting may need to be replaced as the months go on, due to the fact that the weather will turn them to brown and grey. Leaving the garden furniture out when it’s freezing outside is a big mistake to make, especially as you could be leaving the furniture to rust. Your summer furniture needs to be stored carefully, and we’ve got some ideas for you below:
Outside storage is perfect as a solution for those who don’t have a garage that they can utilize. There are storage solutions for gardens of all sizes, and all you need to do is turn to Google to give you the right answer. Be smart about your storage security, though, as you need to keep your furniture safe from chancers who may scale your fence. Christmas is a particular time of year where people steal into gardens to see what they can lift, so be smart here about your security choices.
If you are a dab hand at carpentry, you could save yourself a lot of money by making your own garden shed. All you need is the right tools, some good and sturdy wood and a cheap circular saw to make your dream shed a reality. Check out guides like this one to building your own shed, and follow the instructions carefully so that you’re not left wondering what you could have done better. Your shed, again, needs decent security and you also need to ensure you weatherproof it so that it’s safe from the rain and snow that winter often tends to bring.
A storage option that is less obvious is a bench with a built-in storage system underneath. If your garden furniture happens to fold down, you will be able to put the chairs and deck chairs away for a few months and keep them protected from the rain. Use these weather proofing tips for your garden storage so that you can get the right products for it.
Winter in the garden is a beautiful sight, but you’ve spent money on furniture and this means you want to take care of your furniture so that it’s right for next year and the warm months. In the meantime, enjoy the frosty effects that the winter brings to you.
