  4. Organize Your Outdoor Storage Space with a Garden Shed

    Organize Your Outdoor Storage Space with a Garden Shed
    If your backyard looks like a mess, it'll be tough to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery come springtime. That's why the perfect backyard oasis starts with an organized outdoor storage space and garden shed. And if you're like us, you may already be thinking about gardening, early seedlings, and where to store all that garden equipment in a way that's easily accessible. You may event want your items stored under lock and key. The first step in creating a heavenly backyard space is to choose the best possible outdoor storage unit.

    Choosing the Ultimate Garden Shed

    Need a place to store soil for gardening? Hang garden tools for easier access? What about a safe, lockable space where you can store away pool equipment and bird seed? Finding reliable outdoor storage is the first step in creating the perfect backyard environment for you and your family. Garden sheds are great for organizing your items so they're out of sight, but easy to access and many are easy to set up and make perfect seasonal storage. Others offer great long-term storage solutions that won't break the bank. So how do you find the garden shed or outdoor storage space that's right for you?

    Measure Your Space

    It may seem silly, but make sure that you have the proper permissions to set up a storage unit on your property. Find out what your building codes are, and make sure you're legally allowed to set up that extra storage for your backyard or patio area. In most cases, this isn't an issue but you will want to be sure. If you're renting, make sure that your landlord gives you the green light to set up a stylish garden shed or extra outdoor storage space or unit in your backyard. Next, measure your space. Figure out how much of your backyard space you want to designate for storage. Based on the available space you want to use for your unit, you'll be able to narrow down the different options.

    How-To Install Shade Sails from ShelterLogic for Your Pool or Patio

    Shade Sails Look Great and They're Built to Last

    Here at ShelterLogic we try to create affordable and unique shade solutions and patio covers that will last more than one season. We're big fans of our Shade Sails and Shade Cloth, and we're not alone - our customers love them too. Scott Dawson of Trumansburg, NY purchased a ShadeLogic 12 ft. x 12 ft. Square Sand Heavy Weight Sun Shade Sail in August of 2015, and it's on it's second season. We first heard from Scott last year when he Tweeted us a photograph of his backyard, showing off his stylish outdoor patio fully equipped with a ShelterLogic Shade Sail. With the warmer months just around the corner, we wanted to ask Scott what he thought of last year's Shade Sail purchase and catch up with him to find out how well his Shade Sail is faring this season. Scott agreed to give us a testimonial and some insight on why he chose ShelterLogic Shade Sails for his patio and how he is still happy with his choice.

    We love that we don't have to constantly move an umbrella around our table to have good shade, and also love that it floats above our seating area without a bulky pole to hold up an umbrella," Scott explained in a recent testimonial. We [took] it down for the winter, so the weight of the snow (which we sadly didn't get much of this year) wouldn't damage it. We put it back up once that threat was gone, in late April this year. We have a unique configuration in our backyard, as we had two natural anchor points on our house, but none for the other two corners. I didn't want to have to put up dedicated
