If you have a yard, you’ll need a lawn mower to keep it tidy. No matter how you feel about mowing the lawn – some people enjoy it, while others loathe it – you’ll want to keep your mower in good condition to make this task as easy as possible. To do so, consider these outdoor lawn mower storage ideas.
Consider ordering a new, affordable steel structure from American Carports, Inc. to store your lawn mower. Use our Build & Price Tool to fully customize your structure, view a 3D rendering, and receive an instant quote!
At first, you might think that you’ll just store your lawn mower inside your attached garage, if you have one. That certainly can work, but there are a couple of notable drawbacks to consider:
If you decide to cross your attached garage off the list of storage options, you might be considering just leaving it outside. You could set it off to the side of your lawn and let it live there, and you could also buy a cover to protect it from some of the elements. This is certainly a convenient way to go, since you can just park it once you are done cutting the grass. However, even if you do add a cover, it will still be outside in the cold winter months, and it will probably get wet one way or another. For the most part, parking your mower outside should only be a last resort when nothing else will work.
Now we are getting into the better options that will provide you with both convenience and protection for the mower. By constructing a storage shed on your property, perhaps just behind the yard near the fence, you will have a handy storage solution that may be able to accommodate other yard tools, as well. In addition to the mower, you could also house things like shovels, rakes, gloves, and whatever else you use to keep your landscaping looking pristine.
The great thing about this kind of storage shed is that it does not need to be an expensive addition to your property. With a steel shed, for instance, you can complete the whole project for a modest investment, giving you a perfect parking spot for your mower without breaking the bank.
Design Your Shed
Along the same lines as a storage shed, you could opt for another type of building separate from your house – a detached garage. This can also be a steel building, but it will be much larger and capable of far more than just storing your mower. You could set aside a spot for a mower in the new detached garage, but you could also use it for parking, storage, and more. Also, if you like to work on DIY projects, this detached garage could provide the perfect indoor space to spread out your tools and supplies so you can work properly.
Before planning out a detached garage, be sure that you have the space available on your property for such a building, and make sure that the building will comply with all local codes and regulations.
As you can see, an affordable and durable steel structure is the best outdoor lawn mower storage idea. Whether you’re planning to build a small shed or a large enclosed garage, you can customize your structure exactly to your liking with our Build & Price Tool! The team at American Carports, Inc. looks forward to serving you.
