Invest in a Small Garden Shed this Christmas

Christmas is a great time to consider a small garden shed for your backyard in Penrith to store all your Christmas decorations in – amongst many other uses. You probably have your decorations stored all over the house, boxes in cupboards and under the bed, free up some of the space inside your home by investing in a small garden shed. Ornaments, lights, the Christmas tree, garlands and all other decorations can be stored safe and sound, dry and protected in a small garden.

  • Tree storage: If you have an artificial tree that you want to recycle and use year after year, consider buying a tree storage bag, it’s one of the easiest ways to store your tree, and is a lot easier than trying to get your tree back into the box. A lot of people buy a new artificial tree every year and throw it out once Christmas is over, but if you have a small garden shed to store your Christmas items, you can use your tree over and over again.
  • Wreath Storage: A plastic container is great for storing and protecting your Christmas wreath from dirt, moisture and dust, plus it will keep your wreath in shape and all the ornaments attached to it until the following Christmas. Be sure you measure your wreath before you buy a container to store it in, and you don’t want to bring the container home only to find it’s too small.
  • Storing lights and garlands: You can buy storage boxes that have been designed to store lights, or buy a few storage boxes, either way, it’s good to keep your lights, power leads, garlands etc. free from dirt and debris.
  • Ornament Storage: Store your tree ornaments and other small Christmas decorations and collectables in small storage boxes. Don’t buy anything too big as you’ll have to dig through everything to find what is at the bottom. If you have a lot of ornaments you want to keep together, you can always purchase a range of smaller boxes that can then be placed in a bigger box – making it easier to carry into the house. Look for boxes of different sizes, and you can also purchase boxes with little dividers inside to help keep breakable items safe.
  • Candles: while it is not recommended to store candles in a garden shed, due to heat build-up, if you do want to store them outside, wrapping them individually in cellophane will help prevent them from melting or transferring colours. If you must store your candles in a small garden shed, try placing them in an area in your shed that is shaded or doesn’t get much sun/heat on it. If you don’t want the hassle, or you don’t have the room inside your home to store candles, consider buying flameless candles that won’t melt.
  • If you have been using cardboard boxes for storage replace them with sturdy plastic storage boxes, they are better for stacking and are not as *attractive* to rats and mice.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service

  • I would like to thank you very much for helping us so promptly with our bird aviary. There was a lot of discussion between the doves on returning to their new cage, but they have now settled in again very happily !! We really appreciate the hurry you gave us the order. Thank you very very much
