Having a garden is a wonderful thing. It adds a level of aesthetic beauty to your home and provides a place to relax and unwind after a busy day. It is also a place to entertain guests and hold any kind of family events. That said, garden maintenance can be a lot of work. Here are some things that you should keep in your garden shed so that the upkeep of your garden can be maintained.

Lawn mower

Keeping the grass in the garden looking clean and even can be a lot of work. What’s the best way to do this? Having a good lawn mower on hand. Lawn mowers make it quick and easy in keeping the grass level the way you choose. While battery-powered lawn mowers have come a long way in recent years, it can still be a good idea to invest in a corded mower. Consider installing a waterproof outdoor socket in your garden shed to plug it in. Though it is hard to find a good and inexpensive lawn mower you’ll find that it is a good investment.


How do you keep your grass, plants and flowers healthy? You must give them food to help them grow. Keeping a bag of fertiliser in your garden shed is the best way to do this. Store granular fertiliser in a dry spot. Label different types of fertilisers clearly or keep them in their original bags. Luckily, there are many tutorials on YouTube on how to properly use fertiliser. Learning how to do this will go a long way in making your garden look as good as it possibly can.

Garden tools

Garden tools can help you maintain your garden in many different ways. Here are some examples of tools that you can store in your shed:

  • A strimmer is needed to cut the edges of your lawn
  • A spade to alter the shape of garden beds and dig deeper holes
  • A garden hole driller can easily drill planting holes
  • A garden fork is perfect to remove weeds and for aerating. You can buy digging attachments for both garden forks and spades to make digging easier and avoid back pain.
  • A garden hoe is used for weeding and to cultivate the soil


A high-quality tool chest cabinet which allows easy access to your screwdrivers, hammers, and other tools, so that you don’t have to spend time searching, can be incredibly useful to have. You could decide on simple but sturdy toolboxes with plenty of compartments or organise your tools in rolling tool cabinets. Shelving and tool racks that are magnetised are also great to have in your shed.

Here are the things that should be in your toolbox:

  • Screwdrivers
  • Hammers
  • Pliers
  • Measuring Tape
  • Utility Knife
  • Torch
  • Batteries.

Watering cans

It’s obvious that everything that grows out of the ground needs water to help it stay alive. To ensure that you can regularly water all of the things in your garden, it’s good to keep a watering can at hand. There are plenty of different sized water cans to fit your needs, whether you have a weak grip, suffer from back pain or are looking for a unique design.

Let yourself be inspired by other gardeners and consider adding a shelf and bench for paint pots, tools and pots.

Outdoor furniture especially during the colder and wetter months if you don’t want to damage them.
