How to Build a Garden Tools Shed
Create lean-to storage with tongue-and-groove cedar
All the rust-resistant coating in the world won't save your garden tools if you leave them outside all the time. To create a clean, dry, and accessible locale for your pruners and shovels, plant a handsome wood lean-to shed against the house near the patio or garden. If it's made from cedar, a naturally rot-resistant wood, it will weather nicely while protecting your goods from precipitation and insects alike. You can make one in a weekend out of off-the-shelf lumber or buy a panelized kit that screws together in under an hour. Once the quaint cabinet is in place, just remember to rinse off your tools and clean them occasionally with WD-40 before tucking them away. That'll keep rust at bay for years to come.
Or buy a garden tool shed for easy install.
