A GardenSite product is once again featured on TV tonight, this time a lockable container to solve a couple's storage problem.
Over recent years plastic sheds have become an increasingly viable alternative to those made traditionally with timber.
This is because plastic sheds offer excellent build quality in addition to several benefits that make them well worth considering.
One of the main reasons why people choose to buy a plastic shed is that they are maintenance free.
All the attention a plastic shed requires is warm soapy water or a high pressure wash now and again so that its appearance remains pristine.
The roof of a plastic shed can easily withstand heavy snow and, when it melts, the water just runs off the outside rather than penetrating inside.
All your gardening equipment, chairs, cushions and other items that are stored will remain perfectly dry.
If you are concerned about condensation, this will not be a problem if the base is constructed properly following the manufacturer's instructions.
Neither rain nor sun are problems. The HDPE or PVC Vinyl used in the shed's manufacture has been developed to be extremely durable over a number of years. This means they are watertight, weatherproof and UV resistant.
These high tech plastics are now very unlikely to crack, their colour won't fade and any solvent and paint spills can be quickly wiped up with no long term damage.
Although very functional and practical, plastic sheds manufactured by companies such as Lifetime Presige sheds, Palram sheds, Duramax, Suncast and Grosfillex are available in a number of contemporary styles, and, in addition to storage, plastic sheds may be used for many different purposes such as a playroom or outside office.
They are easily and quickly assembled, so it might be time to have a look at what's on offer and let a plastic shed help make the most out of your garden.
Please remember that all plastic sheds must be anchored to a firm foundation to protect against wind damage.
You can view a wide range of plastic sheds on the GardenSite website.
