The British love with timber sheds and wooden summer houses is well known as is the love for gardening, the countryside and most things out doors. Whether this is because we are a small independent country with green and rolling hills or because self sufficiency is inbuilt is unclear. However the fact remains that this is an enjoyable hobby for many people.
The ‘upside’ to this, besides the fitness aspect of working in the garden, and the financial benefits gained from produce grown, is that when Christmas, birthdays, Father’s day some round there no shortage of items which can be bought for the garden owner. No need for socks, although I did ask for socks last Christmas, or after shave or other items, all given with the best intentions and thoughts. The gardener will normally delight in gifts for his hobby.
These can range from even a few packs of seeds however, ideally, try to find out what seeds he would like for his garden, right the way through to buying him, or her, a new garden shed or (say it quietly) – a timber summerhouse. Which would be a very generous gift. If you do consider a new garden shed ensure you don’t just buy the cheapest shed going as this is likely to have chipboard or OSB boarded roof. And you will find these will start to fall to bits after only a few years.
Whilst a garden shed or even a wooden summer house cabin would be welcome, to a certain degree, these buildings does tends to be a little bit personal so maybe steer away from this option. If you are keen on this idea I would suggest some consultation with the prospective future owner to ensure the right garden building bought.
Garden tools can be another good present, but again, tools for the garden can become personal friends to their owners. Try to get a feel from the owner to see what their view are. You will often find that stainless steel garden tools would be welcomed in most instances and would be a boon for the gardener. Small tools for the garden come in a wide range of implements so you would have a great choice to choose from.
If the prospective owner has aching muscles or arthritis then special tools designed to make gardening more comfortable could be the order of the day. These would often be fitted with padding on their handles to make handling them as comfortable as possible. Another idea is a kneeling pad or garden cushion which can be used throughout the garden. Whilst this might not sound very exciting in many cases will be very welcomed as this will save those knees from getting sore and uncomfortable.
The sheer amount of garden related items available from just a few pounds right up to new wooden summer house or cabins (if you have big pockets), like a the ones from 1st Choice, means that you will never be short of ideas for your loved one. You could do what my son does each Christmas and provided a list of what could be useful to him. I will stress it is my wife who asks for the list and it’s not my son being cheeky.
Clearly it’s a great idea to buy something as a present for those special days of the year and, with gardening items, will last for many years and not just for a few days. So go on and make someone’s day and help them to add to their garden tool collection in their garden shed. You can’t go wrong.’
As I say the common garden shed or wooden summerhouse is home to a great number of items and the value of its use it usually not appreciated. However if you stop and think about the many virtues of the shed you will not take its use in vain again. Where would you put all the garden equipment, the children’s bikes, garden furniture and garden tools? There’s not really any space indoors and even if there was you would not really want those items in there.
You do need to take a look in your garden shed or summer building and add up all the value of the items and ensure, where ever possible, to make sure these items are covered by insurance. This is not always possible as insurance companies are not very keen on insuring risky out door timber buildings. However if you persevere and show that your garden shed is secure and, as importantly, is kept secure you may be able to get cover.
However, if you do get insurance cover ensure that your garden building is kept locked with all security measures in place because if you don’t and your shed gets burgled the insurance company will refuse to pay out. A little similar to leaving your car keys in your car and a thief driving it away. So if you do pay for insurance make sure you don’t regret it.
The other side of the coin is to take a calculated risk and just make the most of any security procedures. This will make it hard for thieves to get at your valuables and will encourage them to move onto easier targets. I would be a little wary of having any very high value items in your shed unless you can lock your garden gate to stop thieves getting at the garden shed. The garden gate can act like a moat around the castle. In this instance the shed is the castle being protected and the locked gate and surrounding fence is the moat, or first line of defence.
If you do this then you can relax a little and use your garden shed (or wooden summer house if you have one) for a range of purposes whether it’s a bar to share with your friends, even a church – which I must admit is a very unusual use for a garden shed but where needs must – maybe an artist’s studio such as one made by a man in Malmsbury. His creation morphed from a simple shed, donated to him by his father-in-law, and evolved into a workshop cum party shed cum ‘man space’ with help from his friend.
This is all very good advice as the value of items in the average garden shed is over £1000 and summer houses from £2 -3 thousand and which increases year on year. This is according to a report by M&S Money, he financial arm of Marks & Spencer. Some of the most expensive items included lawn mowers in nearly 40% of sheds. Bikes were also a very popular items with over a quarter of sheds protecting them from the elements followed up by DIY equipment in general.
Astonishingly the survey found that nearly half of all garden sheds were not locked, which must be music to the ears of thieves, and this figure had risen substantially over earlier years. This I find amazing as I would have thought that, as budgets are reduced, more measures would be taken to protect ones’ own property.
However, whatever you do don’t follow the action of a lady in Leominster who, when her shed was cleared out, showed that there was a World War 2 incendiary bomb among the items in there. Action was taken to dispose of this bomb safely when it was exploded safely outside of Leominster by bomb disposal officers.
