Rowlinson Box

Children tend not to be very good at tidying up, and various items littering the garden look untidy and will also deteriorate fairly quickly if left outside. That's why a garden store made from timber, plastic or metal can come in very handy.

Wooden Garden Storage

The Halls Tool Chest is perfect for small to medium sized objects including a small child's bicycle. The felt roof is watertight and, as it's dip treated, a 10 year guarantee against rot is offered. There's an overlap and shiplap version with a detachable front for easy access.

Rowlinson have an attractive wooden Garden Chest with a removable front panel and lifting lid. The 12mm shiplap cladding has a dipped honey-brown finish, and the roof covered with roofing felt. Their waterproof and lockable Mini Store is also useful for garden tools, as is the Halls Mower Store and Maxi Garden Store

Plastic And Metal

Plastic storage is also offered by Rowlinson in the form of their Utility Cabinet and Cushion Box / Bench, and Suncast has a range of cabinets and garden furniture such as the Patio Seat and Wicker Garden Seat. Their Outdoor Bench has a large capacity and there's also a wicker coffee and side table with storage underneath.

Metal storage boxes of various capacities are manufactured by BioHort, large enough for bikes and fully weatherproof due to the use of hot dipped galvanised steel with a polyamide coating. Their Leisure Time boxes have a gas operated spring opening system, excellent ventilation and cylinder lock for security.

Trimetals have Storeguard, Stowaway and Sentinel garden stores, with PVC coated galvanised panels, rust free fixings and an attractive range of colours. Fire resistant and mainenance free, they are guaranteed for 25 years.

All these storage solutions will prove useful long term alternatives to an untidy garden, clearing up your children's debris and also ideal for cushions, fold up chairs and other paraphernalia left behind by adults.
