(3).  Wooden Bike Sheds for Gardens

wooden bike_shed

Traditional bike sheds such as this Bike Store Mini Shed have been around for a long time.  They have the advantage (or is it the disadvantage) of being able to store lots of other important equipment / junk!  This however makes them big, so if you are constrained by the size of your garden this may be a factor.

We have a whole other section on shed security, tips and products - please consider implmenting some of these if you do use a wooden shed.

Positives.  Cheapest Option.  Can fit your lawn mower in!

Negatives.  Bike Store Mini Shed will have weak points such as windows.  Large garden floor space required.  Will need to be assembled.
