Spring Gardening Tips with Self-storage

The sun is making more frequent appearances, the birds are chirping, and new grass is beginning to creep up again. Spring is on its way, and that means that it’s only a matter of time before you’ll want to break out the gardening tools to dig in and give your favorite plants the chance to flourish this season!

Whether you’re working with an entire backyard’s worth of landscaping potential, or a modest back porch that you like to populate with pots and planters, there are a few tools that every diligent green thumb should have in his or her arsenal. But as we’re sure you can guess, that equipment and all of your other supplies tend to take up a lot of room. So how do you reconcile your need to beautify your environment with the necessity of saving some closet space?

Luckily, there is one sure solution you can consider this spring; self-storage is a great, affordable way to stow away gardening essentials until they’re needed again, leaving you with plenty of room to grow.

Get a handle on it
For those bigger outdoor endeavors – tilling the ground for a natural area or vegetable garden, digging up a stump or bush, or even laying the groundwork for some new stone paths – you might find yourself wondering if you really need to keep things like shovels and rakes in your shed at home. Bulkier or longer tools such as these do tend to get in the way, especially if you store other things in this space, too. But when you invest in a reliable self-storage facility, you can count on this equipment staying dry and secure until you’re ready to bring it back out into the sunshine again. Facilities like ours that also have self-storage options on a monthly basis make it even easier to swap out what you need, when you need it!

Save for a rainy day Are your tools cluttering up your garage and making you park your car on the curb outside? What better place than in your self-storage unit?  A professionally maintained, dry space is just what Mother Nature ordered for the more sensitive materials in your gardening shed. And if it saves you the extra shopping trips along the way, that’s more time working in the sunshine and making your corner of the world a bit greener.

Customize your space
Just because a self-storage unit doesn’t come readily available with shelves and other helpful additions, doesn’t mean you can’t bring your own and customize your space! The unit is there for you to use as you see fit; so, if you find yourself wanting to bring in some smaller tools or other gardening add-ons, but don’t want to just toss them into the general area and hope for the best, invest in a few shelves or organizational bins. By optimizing your self-storage unit, you make it that much easier on yourself to swap things in and out between seasons, like that pretty hanging planter you’ve been dying to use since the fall chill settled in.

We know you’re dying to get out there and revive your spring garden – let us help! Here at Extra Attic, you’ve got tons of secure options for making your efforts easier, and all at our affordable monthly rates. Check out our unit availability online, or contact us to find out more.
