The Forest Log and Tool Store is a handsome garden structure and, now that winter is approaching, a very useful acquisition. Martyn Loach purchased one recently and here he explains how it is assembled.
There are various materials that a garden shed can be made from such as timber, plastic or metal and you will find that out of the three, metal sheds are the most environmentally friendly.
The resources that go into building a metal shed as opposed to sheds made from other materials is much less and you’ll find that the prices for metal sheds are very good too.
Another plus point about a metal shed is that when they come to the end of their life you can recycle the shed, which has greatly lowered your carbon footprint, saving the environment and giving you peace of mind.
Many metal sheds are also built from recycled material already, so you will be saving the environment twice fold by choosing a metal shed if yours is recycled at the end of it’s life.
These advantages put metal sheds firmly in pole position when it comes to anyone looking for eco storage or a workspace.
The only process which has been found to be slightly harmful to the environment is when the layer of zinc is added but this treatment prevents rusting and will also mean you do not need to use any more treatments which could be unfriendly to the environment and as this layer is added by professionals it is done with minimal wastage.
