Comparison of Siding Materials for Storage Units - Natural wood is considered by many the most attractive siding for storage units. But wood exposed over time to water usually rots. Some woods, however, contain natural resins that make them relatively rot-resistant. Cedar is such a wood and very popular as a siding choice for storage units. But even cedar siding is not maintenance-free. Coat cedar with a UV-inhibiting sealer/preservative every other year to protect it from ultraviolet solar radiation. Apply a clear stain, as well, to help preserve its natural beauty.
Keep Shovels Standing- Shovels, rakes and other landscaping tools can end up anywhere in the shed, but can be a hazard if you're walking around. Without a proper place, these tools just thrown about can become an easy way for you or others to trip and fall. Not to mention, they become hard to find. But with so many awkward shapes, how can you fit them neatly? One solution is to screw a standing pallet into the wall of your shed. Now, you've created vertical storage to easily keep items off the ground.
