Your backyard space matters. You’ll want it to look nice – the average American spends more than $90 on caring for their lawn, after all – and to provide you somewhere to relax in the summer sunshine. However, you need this outdoor space to serve a practical purpose too, right? Identifying the right storage is key to this, helping you to avoid over-cluttering your home. But, just because it’s storage it doesn’t need to be dull and you don’t have to opt for the obvious choice. Let us enlighten you with five innovative ideas that will deliver your practical needs in a more creative way…

 

Your Pallet Pal

Old pallets can be given a new lease of life once they’ve served their time in helping to transport goods to stores and warehouses. They can easily be repurposed into shelving units or used to hang garden tools from, for example. Or, why not think a little more creatively and make your own DIY gardening table? It’d be great to put plant pots on and to leave your watering cans and compost on while you’re tending to the garden. Check out this guide to see how it’s done.

File Those Tools Away

Hands up who has an old filing cabinet they don’t really need these days? Yep, us too. In an era of cloud computing and online banking, big old filing cabinets just gather dust and eat away at your precious space in the home. Don’t throw it out though, check out this guide from Homedit and have a go at repurposing this as a storage unit for your garage.

Aim High

There are smart ways in which you don’t have to take up too much space in your backyard to create a little extra storage. By using an old set of ladders, a few well placed hooks or an old set of drawers, for example, there are ways in which you can store plants, tools and toys up the height of a fence or outdoor wall, leaving more room for your lawn, flowers, decking or pool.

Make Use of your Bench

One way to be innovative with your storage is to make use of little spaces that would otherwise be wasted. Think, for example, of any benches or outdoor seating that you might have. With a little bit of work, you could easily transform these, making the space beneath an ideal storage area for anything from tools to parasols.

The Appeal of Steel

What if you’ve got something a little larger that needs storing outdoors? That collection of classic hot rods or your RV need a safe space away from the elements to keep them in the best condition. A quonset hut garage is perfect for this sort of thing – as well as any other bulk storage requirement – offering you a more robust option than your standard shed.

From steel sheds to stool storage, there are many ways – big and small – to think outside the box and deliver innovative ideas for your backyard. Do you have any great backyard storage ideas? Let me know your suggestions…
