There is a wide choice of storage solutions in which you can stowaway children's play toys, summer furniture, tools and other gardening equipment, making sure they are not ruined by bad weather and safeguarding them from theft. 

The Suncast range of high quality plastic stores is particularly impressive. These good looking benches, deck boxes and seats, some with a wicker work or rattan appearance, are attractive, very durable, need little or no maintenance. They have a storage capacity of up to nine cubic metres and are perfect if you want to tidy the garden.

Biohort Leisure Time boxes come in four sizes and are large enough to conceal sun beds, seat cushions, folding chairs and many other garden items. Lockable, sturdy and ventilated, they are fitted with an integral steel floor.

Trimetals have been manufacturing metal stores for over thirty years, the painted galvanized metal is strong, rigid and comes with a 15 year panel guarantee. Their Sentinel, Storeguard and Stowaway garden stores have two secure padlock points, they are fire resistant and all the contents can be easily accessed from an opening front and roof.

Secure Asgard storage units are waterproof and constructed from galvanised steel, ideal if you have a caravan or holiday home and will fit into limited space. Very sturdy, they offer 'storage for life' and can be used to accommodate a huge variety of items.

For specialist bicycle sheds, that can also be used for to protect other expensive equipment, refer to our guide to Secure Storage Solutions.
