Spring has sprung, and, as the warm weather arrives a lot of gardeners are keen to get back outside, start planting and weeding and making their gardens look great again. This means you are probably going to be spending a lot more time in or using your garden shed Sydney and you want to make your trips too and from your shed easy. This means doing some *spring cleaning* to get your shed organised again.
• Make some room. If your garden shed Sydney has doubled as a storage shed over winter you will need to remove everything that doesn’t belong in there for spring, move it all out of the way so you can get gardening once again.
• Give your garden tools a little *love*. Assuming you live in a colder area, you probably haven’t needed to touch your gardening tools over winter, while your garden has been laying dormant. Your garden has been untouched – so have your tools – shears, shovels, trowels etc. You want to start spring on the right foot, so it’s time to wipe off any surface rust and dirt and grime.
• Organise your shelves (if you have them). If you didn’t do this at the end of autumn when you packed tools away for winter, now is the time to sort through everything. Throw out anything that isn’t needed anymore, and make a list of any gardening supplies you do need – fertilisers, pest control, mulch etc.

• Check for any unwanted and unwelcome visitors. Winter is when a lot of pest are looking for cover, somewhere to call home, and a garden shed Sydney is a very appealing pace for rats, mice and other pests to escape the cold. Make sure your garden shed hasn’t become home for any pests!
• Get rid of built up spider webs above doors and windows and in the corners
• When you are moving things around, if you notice any spills take a few minutes to clean it up
• Sweep the floor, when you’ve moved everything out, not you can access and clean the floor, look for anything that may be broken or need repair.
• If your shed has windows wipe them down on the inside and the outside.
• Organise everything into piles – keep, sell and toss. If you have found a lot of stuff when tidying up, chances are there are items you don’t need at all. Anything broken or damaged should be thrown away, if there is anything that works, is in good shape, but you just don’t use anymore consider listing them for sale on Gumtree or selling pages on Facebook.
Anything you need to keep, before you pack it away again, check that it’s working ok.
