Keep Your Garden Tidy with Small Garden Storage

The Invaluable Garden Storage Box

No matter what sort of lifestyle you lead, a small garden storage box is an absolute godsend.

This isn’t business sales patter, and we’re not hyping up the next ‘big thing’, but patio storage boxes are amongst the most useful items in the garden. In fact, pound for pound, in both weight and sterling, you’d struggle to make a better purchase.

If you don’t believe us, consider these 10 benefits of small garden storage:

10 Brilliant Uses for Small Garden Storage Boxes

1. Outside Storage for Dog Walkers

A dog needs its exercise come rain or shine.

This means that dog and owner alike sometimes get a bit dirty.

What you need is a place in the garden to sit down, take off your wellies and clean muddy paws.

The 1’11x1’6 Suncast Resin Wicker Plastic Garden Storage Box with Seat not only offers you a suitable seat, this weatherproof outside store also contains ample storage space for dog leads, wellies, poop bags and a torch.

2. Small Outdoor Storage for Gardeners

We know most of you own a garden shed, but think about the benefits of having a small wooden store too.

You would have instant access to frequently-used tools, without having to shift a whole host of other things out of the way first.

Try the Forest Tall Garden Store.

Pressure-treated and supplied with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee, this wooden storage unit has a very small footprint, but its elevated height makes it capable of storing plenty of long-handled tools.

3. Patio Storage for Kids’ Toys

It’s great to see the kids enjoying themselves out in the garden, instead of cooped up indoors.

The only downside is you can bet your bottom dollar that when they come back inside, the patio will be strewn with toys.

The Forest 4x2 Rattan Effect Plastic Patio Storage Box provides the answer.

Practical, stylish and with a reassuring 5-year guarantee, this patio storage box’s generous 270L capacity means you’ll have your patio tidy again in no time.

4. Small Garden Storage for Sun Worshippers

Nothing beats relaxing in the garden on a sunny day, but there comes a time when your outdoor furniture needs packing away.

A dusty, old shed isn’t a suitable home for brand-new garden cushions. Enter the small garden storage box.

The 4x2 Rowlinson Metal Rattan Effect Garden Storage Box Anthracite is rust resistant, fire retardant and completely weatherproof.

6. The BBQ Master’s Very-Own Patio Storage

A cream and brown plastic store, with its doors and lid open to reveal barbecue equipment.


We know how much our customers enjoy a good barbie.

However, the weather in Manchester isn't the same as in Melbourne, so you may need a place to quickly store your barbecue, tools and charcoal, when the rain sets in.

The Toomax Extra Large 842L Plastic Outdoor Shed is a tidy 4x2, so won’t take up valuable garden space.

If you don’t do barbecues, we’d still recommend buying one, for this plastic garden storage unit can double up as a wheelie bin store, suitable for two 120L wheelies.
