The warmer months are a great time to lounge outside, take in the sun’s rays, do some gardening, and maybe have a cookout or two. But many of these outdoor activities come with their own set of stuff, and all these outdoor paraphernalia need a place to go when you’re not using them. Without outdoor storage, you can easily run into problems as leaving things exposed to the elements can cause them to get dirty, rotten, and broken.
Fortunately, there are plenty of neat and simple outdoor storage ideas that make storing all your outdoor stuff easy as pie. Everything from gardening tools to outdoor refreshments can be stored in a designated place where they will be out of the way until you need them. No need to worry any longer about tripping on some rusty rake hidden in your lawn, or finding your bicycle covered in bird droppings.
With just a dash of DIY skill and plenty of elbow grease outdoor storage can be made for any backyard accouterments you can think of.
Outdoor Storage Bench
This is a cozy and super practical outdoor storage idea that looks good and is easy to use. To top it off, it is one of the most straightforward garden storage solutions you can build yourself. Making one of your very own storage benches is a simple matter of making a wooden box with a lid on top. This box can be made to any dimensions you wish, although a “standard” size of 46”x20” is good enough for most of your outdoor storage needs. All you need to build your own storage bench are some screws, a drill, some wood glue, and plenty of plywood sheets.
