  Big shed and small outdoor store  

If your garden is too small for a full-size shed or you just need extra storage space then it's worth thinking about a scaled-down version. Some of our smaller storage products  are only supplied flat-packed, but others include a home assembly option.

There are two types of cladding available:

  • Overlap

  • Shiplap

 
             
 

Overlap small storage 

 
 

Garden stores with overlap walls have a pleasantly rustic, traditional look, and offer good value for money. The walls are made up of horizontal overlapping wooden boards which form a series of sloping surfaces running down the sides of the structure. 

The simple but effective design lets rainwater drain off easily so everything inside stays dry. Repairs are also straightforward as individual boards can be easily replaced.

There are various types of overlap storage solutions available:

  Storage box with overlap wall construction  
             
  Large overlap garden store  

Large outdoor store 

Versatile and practical, the new large apex outdoor store offers 200 litres of storage space and is just the thing for keeping items such as tools, gardening equipment and even bikes close to the house. The back panel consists of solid timber boards for durability. At the front, shiplap tongue & groove panels provide extra weather protection.

The store is made from pressure-treated timber and comes with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee. Also available with pent roof.

What's so good about shiplap?

Garden stores that have shiplap walls are particularly secure and robust, as the tight-fitting wooden panels interlock for superior strength and protection against the weather. 

The timber is slow-grown for extra strength, then cut into boards and kiln-dried to reduce the moisture content quickly and evenly. This makes the wood more stable and helps to prevent it warping and shrinking later on. Various kinds of shiplap storage options are available:  

 
             
 

Large outdoor store

This new large pent outdoor store has a 2000 litre capacity, making it perfect for tidying away barbecues and larger items of garden equipment, or for using as a bike store or mower store.

The wood has been pressure-treated in a natural timber colour and comes with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee. A high quality green mineral felt roof covering offers additional protection against the weather. An apex roof version is also available

Tall garden store

If space is really at a premium, a narrow but tall garden store might be the answer. This high quality example features sturdy, 12mm thick shiplap walls and a zinc roof for extra weatherproofing.

The timber has been pressure-treated so you won't need to re-coat it every year, and it comes with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

With a footprint of only 81 x 51cm (2'8" x 1'8" approx) but plenty of height, it's perfect for smaller gardens. There are two shelves, and ample room underneath to store long-handled gardening tools.

The store is delivered flat-packed with all fixings. You can either assemble it yourself, following the comprehensive instructions included, or, at additional cost, choose the professional home assembly option.

Wheelie bin hide

 

More and more of us are recycling nowadays - and sometimes there's nowhere to put the wheelie bins out of sight. They aren't the prettiest household items, and look so much better hidden away in a purpose-built container.

The wheelie bin hide is made from high quality pressure-treated softwood and has two separate folding lids, together with double doors at the front. As well as keeping your wheelie bins out of the way, it will also stop them getting blown over and potentially damaged in bad weather.

How long will my garden store last?

 
  Warranty sign  

Stores that have been dip-treated come with a 10-year guarantee against rot and fungal decay, as long as you re-coat the surface with a suitable preservative every year.  

Pressure-treated stores are guaranteed against rot for 15 years and won't need further treatment applying during this time - although you can paint or stain the timber a different colour to match the rest of your garden furniture if you wish.
