For nearly maintenance-free storage units, vinyl is the preferred siding. Vinyl lacks the visual appeal of wood, but if you own a house with vinyl siding, why not select a storage unit that is also sided with vinyl? However, vinyl will get dirty over time, making it even less attractive. Mold is often the culprit. Take into account the maintenance required to clean the vinyl periodically. Due to their susceptibility to rust, steel storage units should be avoided. Among metal storage units, rust-free aluminum is usually the most sensible choice in siding. Metal siding is hardly the most visually appealing choice.
Garden supplies tend to end up everywhere, especially if you do any potting in your shed. Always make sure to have a clean surface to work on. Old crates work well to hang from your potting area, where you can put small bags of soil, pots and watering cans. For seeds and other loose items, hang a ribbon and attach clothes pin. As you get small packets of seeds, use the clothespins to hang from the ribbon, taking down as needed. This keeps them organized and out of your workspace, so you can make the most of your gardening.
