However small your garden you will need some tools and other equipment to cope with the regular care and maintenance tasks. And those tools will require somewhere to be stored when not in use. While the obvious answer is a garden shed the standard models may be a little on the large size for a small plot. To cater for this need there are compact designs such as those described by Victoria Harrison in her article which I found on the Houzz website.
Whatever size plot you’re the proud owner of, you’ll probably need to invest in some kind of storage to safely stash your outdoor kit and garden tools. If space is tight in your little oasis, this can be a challenge, but don’t dismiss the notion – these small but perfectly formed shed ideas might be just the ticket.Pick a shallow design
If you only have room for a shallow storehouse for stashing garden supplies, a style like this is both pretty and practical and would sit against a garden wall or fence without taking up too much precious floor space.Look for a model that’s shallow in depth but generous in height to maximise vertical storage space and build up, not out. Choose a style with adjustable shelves, too, in order to make the space work perfectly for you.Tuck in a tool shed
More of a sentry box than a traditional shed, this compact outbuilding is the perfect size for storing tools and essential garden supplies, so would be a good choice for a small garden or terrace.Lining the interior with hooks, peg rails or slim shelves will ensure every inch is maximised and the small space remains neat and organised.Think outside the box
I bet you didn’t expect to see a mini shed under here. A truly novel way to use a tricky space, the oversized obelisk was built to conceal an air conditioning unit, but the vertical space above is perfect for storing tall garden tools, too. Close to the house and easy to access, it’s a creative solution if space is at a premium.If you have an existing alcove or unused corner, however small, perhaps you could transform it with some clever, bespoke joinery to create your own version of this decorative solution.
