If your spare room and garage are already short on space, a storage shed is just the place to stash your lawn mower, wheelbarrow, and other bulky home improvement gear that’s essential but not used regularly. Installing a dedicated shed for your equipment keeps it from getting rusty in the weather while safely in a space of its own and out of your way. With every imaginable material and size available, there’s a shed out there to meet your storage needs.

Here are some of our favorite ready-to-build sheds that are perfect for tidying up your yard.

This resin shed from Keter has just enough space in it to fit in a small yard or carport, making it a great place to store your bike, power tools, and garden equipment. The polypropylene and steel-reinforced construction will stand up to seasons of wear and tear and keep weather and critters out. Its understated wood texture also makes it a very unassuming addition to any yard where aesthetics are a concern.

For a classic metal option with a stylish green finish, check out this 6 x 8-foot shed from Patiomore. It stands at a little over 5 feet tall and has four vents at the top that increase ventilation and allow light to pass through. The galvanized, powder-coated steel finish will keep it from rusting and cracking, and the sloped roof is ideal for diverting water away from any equipment you store inside. Pop it on top of your own pre-made floor frame and store away.

Ventilated by two fully functional windows and secured with a locking handle, this would be a super choice for long-term installation.
