Attending Glee, the leading garden and leisure industry show, was a great opportunity for Nathan Dodd to spot trends and anticipate products that will come onto the market in the near future.
Sad to relate but garden thefts seem to be on the increase and that's why Nathan James Dodd thinks security sheds are such a good idea.
Possibly saving you money in the long run, a security shed will keep your valuable garden equipment away from the prying eyes of passers-by and thieves.
Lawnmowers, garden furniture and children's bikes can be stored securely, out of view and behind a padlocked door.
In the Hall's range of sheds there are several sizes and types of security shed, all outstanding value for money.
They range from a 4ft wide x 6ft deep apex roof version to one that is 8ft wide by 12ft All have high eaves and a tall ridge, so movement inside the shed is easy.
You can also choose a pent roof version, there are again eight sizes in the range from 6ft wide x 4ft deep to 12ft wide x 8ft deep.
The sheds are robustly framed, all doors are braced for strength, there are security bolted zinc hinges and a padbolt protector. The narrow windows, high up on the side, are internally glazed, and there's even an option to have no windows at all.
Forest, another leading brand, have a double door 10ft x 8ft security workshop. No windows and a selection of other anti-burglary features make theft much more difficult. If you have an allotment, keeping your tools in a compact security shed such as Forest's 6ft x 4ft or 8ft x 6ft is an excellent idea.
Rowlinson manufacture similar sheds, their 6ft x 4ft, 7ft x 5ft and 8ft x 6ft allotment sheds have security hinges and are windowless. The latter two have double doors that are a great help if you are carrying large equipment.
By placing valuable tools and equipment out of view you are removing them from temptation, and if a break-in is attempted the security features that these sheds offer will deter many thieves.
If you value your belongings, a security shed would seem a very sensible investment.
