Oh what fun, it is to hide, all your summer gear all away! Because otherwise – it’s just in the way! Seriously though, it’s that time of year where everyone’s thermostat is working overtime and we’re all just ambling around the place like tired, frozen zombies. Yes, winter is officially upon us and the icy chill that comes with it brings a whole host of changes to your daily life.
You’ll be wearing a lot more clothes, and seeing a lot less daylight, that’s for sure! Another thing we say goodbye to temporarily is our summer stuff. This can mean different things for residential or commercial environments, but the notion remains the same.
Carry on reading to see examples of summer-exclusive items that will need somewhere to hibernate over the coming months.
Summer Garden Furniture
Garden chairs, tables, patio umbrellas and sun loungers are all examples of summer garden furniture. These are great during the warmer months, but often wasted and exposed to the harsh elements during winter. Sheltering from the winter wind and rain is particularly important if you have wooden furniture. This helps to prevent green algae and/or mould from taking hold.
This is also true for commercial properties that may have wooden benches outside, or patches of grass that feature places for people to relax in the sun. Throughout winter it is important to close off such areas for health and safety reasons – as ice can be extremely dangerous.
Your barbecue equipment is a continuation of the above too. These things don’t last very long during the British winter! Rot, mould and breakages can all occur due to moisture and frozen conditions. If you’re a business owner that likes to treat their employees to a summer BBQ every now and then, you don’t want to waste money replacing your equipment ever year!
You could get yourself a cover, but nothing will protect your stuff better than storing it away safely, away from harm. Plus it makes your garden look a lot less ghastly, removing the snow-covered dome and cooking tools!
Summer Sports Gear
Some sports are best played in the winter, whilst others are most definitely not! Boating, kayaking, sailing and anything else performed on water – you may not fancy this on the wrong side of November! We don’t blame you either! Keep your equipment safe, dry and in one place by locking them up in storage.
Kids Garden Toys and Accessories
We saved one of the most obvious examples until last – children’s stuff! This stuff gets absolutely everywhere! You probably have enough toys inside your house to even contemplate those scattered across your lawn. So why not remove the potential for worry completely and clear the garden of the mess?
Self-storage will ensure your children’s sandpit, paddling pool, pedal cars and whatever else will remain protected and ice-free all winter.
