Take a look at your yard right now. If you’re close to a window, you can peek out. If not, step away from the screen and walk over to the back door. If you’re like most people, your yard is a bit of a mess. You may have considered clearing it up multiple times during the winter, and now that spring is here, the pressure from yard-working neighbours is mounting. You probably realise it’s time to get started, but with that mess out there, where do you begin?
Well, you could start by sorting your yard trash, and you can do this at a glance. Just from your perch by the window or door, you can see the bulk of that mess is kids’ toys, garden tools, abandoned furniture, and suspicious shrubbery that may be housing pests. You could also pass a quick eye over everything, deciding what you want to discard and what you want to keep. While you’re there, think about installing small garden sheds in Gosford.
Give your yard a make-over
What do sheds have to do with a dirty yard? Well, all those items you’ve decided you’d like to keep? You can’t just leave them in the yard. You have to find a place to keep them. And at Col Western Sheds, we’re all about clean storage solutions. We can sell you a shed with storage shelves, sliding doors, and skylights. These are all optional features, so if you’d prefer something more Spartan, you can pick a simple, flat-roof shed with hinged doors. It’s still adequate, but organised storage will prevent your mess from merely migrating indoors.
You might not want the hassle of installing a garden shed, but it’s not that difficult. Our sheds come in flat packs with clear instructions (including a YouTube demo), so you can put it up yourself in just a few hours. All you need is a power drill with screwdriver bits. Of course, you do need to prepare the site in advance and lay a concrete slab for the base. And after the shed is up, you should seal the inside edges with silicone to block rising damp.
But if you’re not the DIY kind, you can ask us to install the shed for you. It takes less than a day, weather-allowing, and we’ll do it for a little over your purchase price (about $120). The simple act of installing a garden shed in Gosford raises your property value. It’s also a good decision health-wise because it eliminates hiding spots for unwanted outdoor guests. The biggest benefit though is a clutter-free yard. Once you can see grass again, you’re more likely to maintain this pristine condition.
You have to be careful with your cleaning routine though. Don’t overfill the shed or it will soon be dank and uninviting, except to creepy crawlers and other undesirables. Our shed layouts offer lots of open space, making it easy to walk around the shed and keep it tidy. The body itself is made of powder-coated PVC sheets in pretty colours. It doesn’t need much maintenance – keep it well-lit and hose it down when it gets dusty.
