There is a time and place when plastic garden storage is the perfect solution for keeping your gardening paraphernalia safe and snug. Plastic stores are easy to assemble and require little or no maintenance. They can also combine superb practicality with stunning good looks. What’s not to like?
Wooden garden storage is great but does need regular maintenance. Repainting or re-staining is a must every couple of years on models that have been dip treated, but plastic stores at the very most need a wash down with warm, soapy water to remove any algae. And that’s only if they have been tucked away in a dark corner of the garden. And that’s it. They are also easier to assemble than metal or wooden stores. Simply slot or click the plastic panels together and within minutes a store can be up and storing. There’s no need for drills and helpful neighbours. All it takes is a quick read of the instructions, layout the pieces and get clicking.
Plastic garden storage is also impervious to water ingress and insect damage. Being constructed from plastic, the stores are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre around a garden. But once happy with a position, they are also easy to secure down and padlock. Both are essential aspects to utilising a plastic store to its full potential. After all, when larger models are filled with gardening products the value is high. A secure and easily fitted padlock is a must as your insurance company may insist on one. Even if it doesn’t, a bit of security gives you peace of mind.
After years of specialised production techniques and research, the actual materials used in their manufacture have improved beyond measure. Sunlight no longer degrades the colour of quality plastic storage stores nor do panels buckle or twist in high temperatures. Not only are they highly durable and practical but plastic stores are also great looking. Rattan lookalike stores will complement the trendiest of garden furniture.
Some models of plastic storage have been designed with one purpose in mind. Wheelie bins for example are difficult to love especially when they loom wherever you seem to look in the garden. A resin wheelie bin store turns an ugly feature into a well disguised focal point.
But a plastic store needn’t just be a store. Clever designs have resulted in stores also doubling up as seating. Now that’s fantastic use of space in any sized garden. Wicker seats, rattan benches and resin patio storage benches are all practical and stylish. Just imagine, masses of storage space and a piece of garden furniture all rolled into one. That’s a great investment.
There’s also a range of sizes and styles to fit and answer most gardening needs. All are long lasting and easily put together. Every one of them is easily secured and none need any attention for decades. Surely plastic is the perfect solution to your storage needs in any garden.
