Presented by Sarah Beeny, Double Your House For Half The Money helps people achieve their property dreams without breaking the bank and at a fraction of the cost of moving. A GardenSite product is once again featured in the programme, this time a lockable container to solve a couple's storage problem.
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.
The programme offers information on the latest products, technology and up-to-date design, so Sarah suggests using Suncast Plastic Outdoor Storage.
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.
Plastic storage solutions, with their durability and long life, are increasingly seen as sound investments, highly practical, attractive and virtually maintenance free.
