The New Garden Shed
It appears that modern gardening requires plenty of power tools, and not all houses have garages or spaces indoors to keep them. Building their new garden shed may require an electric line, but much of the rest of it will look quite traditional. It can be a shed that has been fabricated in a shop, or it could be customized for the homeowner. No matter what choices the modern gardener makes, the shed inside will mostly look and function in the same manner as one built more than a century in the past.
Power tools need to be stored indoors, and it is especially important for battery operated and electronic devices to be kept out of the weather. Gasoline powered tools should be stored inside as well, yet they can take a bit of weathering without harm. For those tools that absolutely require a dry place to be stored when not in use, a garden shed works quite well. It keeps the rain and morning dew away from the electronics and power outlets, and that is what will keep it running.
Benches have often been part of sheds in the past, and they are still useful today. Most modern tools for the garden will not require much maintenance, but an area for potting and plugging in modern tools is a handy space. The bench does not need to be fancy, and it can be nothing more than four legs and a level top for working with tools or plants that modern gardener has chosen.
Hooks to hang tools and other items have been popular for centuries, and they certainly help keep the shed orderly. The newest garden sheds have plenty of options for storage, yet hooks and hanging tools are still a popular choice. The newest hooks come in plenty of sizes and strengths to keep tools where they should be when no in use, and many new designs make them easy to move when the need arises.
