New Year’s resolution:  get organized!  Now is the time to take advantage of that motivating impulse to clean out those closets, clear out the basement, and donate all that miscellaneous stuff that you are saving “just in case.”  Don’t forget about your outdoor spaces, though.  Is your garage frustratingly cluttered with lawn equipment, bicycles and other sports gear, tools, garden supplies, and boxes of mysterious doo dads?Storage Shed

One of the best ways to organize your outdoor supplies, tools, and other gear is with a storage shed.  Storage sheds come in a variety of styles and sizes, so finding the right one for your needs is simply a matter of knowing how much space you require.  It’s a good idea to think ahead to future storage needs, too, and choose a storage shed that can accommodate some growth.  If looks matter, you should consider a cedar storage shed.  Cedar storage sheds make an attractive addition to any property, and they smell great.  Cedar is naturally resistant to insect infestation and decay, but a little basic care over the years will ensure a long life.

Organizing your home doesn’t need to be overwhelming.  Do a little at a time, and you will soon enjoy a less cluttered living space, inside and outdoors.

If you enjoy gardening year round, a greenhouse is a great investment to make. While many people think of a greenhouse as a metal and glass eyesore, they are some beautiful options available.

Stock Up for Spring with a Garden Shed

It’s never too early to get ready for spring gardening, even if the snow is still shin deep.  Spring preparations require stocking up on gardening essentials like soil and seeds, and there is no better time to prepare your gardening tools for a new season of use.  A sturdy cedar garden shed can safely house your spring supplies as well as offer a comfortable spot for cleaning and oiling your favorite garden tools.  Once the winter season wanes, you ‘ll be ready to get digging!

Storage Sheds: The Benefits of Cedar

Rancher Cedar Storage Shed

Outdoor storage sheds may be available in a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and vinyl, but I prefer a storage shed made out of wood — specifically, Western Red Cedar.   Have you ever opened a cedar trunk or stepped into a clothes closet lined with cedar?  Not only is cedar beautiful, it smells fantastic.  The same goes for an outdoor storage shed.  On the other hand, when I walk into my own storage shed, constructed of metal, I detect only the fragrance of gas from the lawnmower and essence of yard chemicals.   It is the last place I want to be.

Even though the sensual aspects of cedar may be the first that we notice, the practical advantages of cedar abound, especially when used for storage sheds and other outdoor furniture.  Cedar offers outstanding insulation, is easy to work with, and contains natural preservatives that make it resistant to insect damage, decay, and harsh weather conditions.  It truly is an all-weather material; it can take the heat of the summer as well as the icy cold of winter, and just about every condition in between.

Because of cedar’s attractive features and benefits, an outdoor shed made of cedar can serve as more than just a place for storage.  You just might want to spend more time in the shed planning gardening projects or working on a hobby.  Some friends I know don’t use their cedar storage shed for storage at all, but for a comfortable and creative play house for their children.

Metal, plastic, and vinyl storage sheds can’t possibly offer the same array of benefits and possibilities as cedar wood sheds.  While fine for basic storage, they lack the charm, beauty, and versatility of a cedar storage shed…and they definitely don’t smell as delicious.
