Innovative Boot Store Arriving Soon from Forest Garden

During the 2016 GLEE Exhibition in Birmingham, Forest Garden revealed some of their new garden storage products for the upcoming 2017 Season. The GardenSite team were eagerly waiting to see what they had planned and the one which caught our attention was the cleverly designed Boot Store, which has been designed to solve the age-old problem of where to store those muddy wellies and boots within your home.

Forest Garden are always designing, improving and crafting wooden garden buildings and storage solutions to suit the needs of every gardener, whether they be an amateur or novice.

They have a selection new products planned to be released for the 2017 Season which will extend their range further, and as one of their retailers, the most eye-catching one which we absolutely love the idea of is their new 'Boot Store' timber storage unit.

Essentially, it's a compact timber store which has been specially designed to provide a place to keep your wellies, boots, umbrellas, dog leads and other items which can tend to get a little muddy, but which you don't wish to keep inside the house.

The Boot Store is ideal to place near your back or front door, or really within any small space outside which will allow you to store your outdoor items without them messing up your home's interior.

It comes complete with two rows of durable pegs which can fit up to four pairs of adult boots or alternatively, just a couple of pairs of boots and some other bits and bobs. The pegs let you hang your boots upside down, which potentially stops any wet mud from falling onto your possessions below.

If you don't have that many wellies to store then you could always use the extra space inside for small tools and gardening items, keeping them in a handy place ready for when you next need to do a touch of maintenance.

Quality Construction and Components

The Boot Store is constructed from smooth planed timber boards and fashioned in a tongue and groove panel design, offering a sturdy and long lasting structure. Each piece of timber arrives pre-treated with Forest's own pressure treatment, this helps to protect the wood from rotting over time and so will not need treating when the self-assembly store arrives. You may however, paint it at home if you wish to spruce up the store with a dash of colour. Any branded outdoor wood paint such as Cuprinol would be an ideal solution if you wanted to colour match the unit to your outdoor space.

Unlike other stores with wooden roofs, this one boasts a higher-quality finish with the use of a galvanised steel roof plate, which is designed to repel rain water from seeping through the top and getting inside. The open slat design of the floor and the charming boot design cut-out window within the door allows for efficient air flow, which ensures that the inside doesn't get damp and keeps your belongings fresh for their next use.

The Boot Store by Forest will be available to order at GardenSite here: /garden-buildings/boot-and-welly-store.htm
