Outdoor Storage Containers- Deck Boxes, Storage Box, and Sheds

Gardeners, homeowners and backyard enthusiasts love outdoor tools and equipment. The more avid the gardener, the larger the gardens. The larger the yard and gardens, the more tools and equipment. More garden and backyard gear, translates into even larger outdoor storage needs, to keep your tools and equipment protected from the environment, organized, and easily accessible.

Outdoor storage is not just for lawn and garden equipment. Deck Boxes, Deck Box, Storage Box, and sheds in all sorts of shapes and sizes, are available for every outdoor storage need. There's even a Balcony Box for those with limited space, on a balcony or deck. It's a great place to store your grill tools.

Tip: When selecting outdoor storage containers, make sure to identify the "inside" dimensions, so you'll be certain your larger equipment fits inside. This is usually described as either the "inside dimensions" or "capacity".

Outdoor Storage Considerations:

  • Shape of large tools and equipment.

  • Inside dimensions of the storage or deck box.

  • Durability

  • Space and location where the outdoor storage unit will fit

  • Select a size with room to grow. Chances are, you will add to your tool and equipment inventory.

Did You Know? Most outdoor storage containers and deck boxes, are taupe colored. Manufacturers migrated to this color for two reasons:

  1. Dark colors get too hot, especially in southern areas of the country.

  2. White shows every mark and speck of dust.

Important Tip: Most plastic outdoor storage sheds and outdoor boxes are not waterproof or airtight. Do not store electronics equipment in them.
