Having a light, well-built but secure garden storage box will help you organise your garden for the better.

These boxes are made from hardened recycled plastics and resins so you do not need to worry about metal and wooden parts becoming rusted or rotten.

These garden boxes need no upkeep all they need is a wipe down from time to time to keep them looking clean and tidy.

Best Garden Storage Boxes

There are various types of storage boxes for the garden, some use thinner plastics that can become brittle and shatter when exposed to the elements.

For storage boxes to last the test of time they must use thick hardened resin.

Resin boxes do not become brittle unlike their cheaper plastic alternatives because the resin is not affected by changes in temperature throughout the year.

Can I Stack These Storage Boxes?

No, because they might become unstable and could fall over. This would be an accident waiting to happen.

Maybe you should buy a bigger storage box to fit all your garden accessories in one container.

Are These Boxes Airtight?

These storage boxes are vented so the contents do not sweat and collect moisture.

They will have small vented holes for air circulation which prevents moisture, algae and mould growth.

Why Not Just Use A Metal Storage Box?

The main reason for this is rust, if you leave a metal box in the garden throughout the year then it will start to rust.

Once the metal rusts you need to treat the metal to stop rust. With these resin boxes, you do not need to worry about the rust because they are designed to be weathered all year-round.

Another benefit is the lightweight resins can be wheeled or easily lifted around the garden.


Whichever storage box design you choose to use in your garden, they will all provide extra security and a place to keep your accessories safe all-year-round!

When it comes to quality, you will find that some storage boxes are very thin/flimsy and can crack or shatter if you sit or knock them.

If you are using your storage for security then we would suggest you get a padlock for extra protection.

All-in-all a garden storage box is a great way to create extra space in your garden area.
