The episode features Russ and Jen Hunt from Sheffield who want a larger family but don't really have enough space. They can't afford to move into a larger home, so must build an extension to their current house. However, they will still have plenty of belongings that need to be securely stowed away.

Latest designs in outdoor storage

The programme offers information on the latest products, technology and up-to-date design, so Sarah suggests using Suncast plastic outdoor storage.

In particular, GardenSite supplied details of an extra large wicker deck box and a large capacity Conniston four vertical storage shed, both manufactured by Suncast in the United States.

These high volume containers can be padlocked for security and are manufactured using top quality, highly durable, UV stable resin and new blow moulding technology. That's why they are guaranteed for so many years.

Ideal for storing anything from garden tools to cushions, they won't look out of place anywhere in the garden, decorated in a style to replicate wicker and rattan.

There are benches and seats as well as boxes and chests, and the Wicker Deck Box, which has a piston mechanism lid, would look fantastic on a patio or decking area.

Practical and maintenance free storage

Plastic storage solutions, with their durability and long life, are increasingly seen as sound investments, highly practical, attractive and virtually maintenance-free. 

With autumn approaching, it might be time to consider one for anything that might be left in the garden unprotected from the weather until next year.
