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.
Utilized Pegboards - Pegboards are a great tool that can be used almost anywhere in the home for organization. The same is true for your shed. For small tools, such as hand shovels and rakes, attach a pegboard to a wall and use various hooks and hangers to place hand tools and other items on. This gets them off the ground, out of the way and in a consistent spot that is easy to find.
