Here is a Review of the Best Backyard Storage Bins for 2018.
How many people could use more storage space in their backyard? Storage bins for the backyard come in a variety shapes and sizes and are a great way to store tools, BBQ utensils, pool supplies and kids toys for a short term until you are ready to use them. Or boots, hats and gloves for the Spring and Summer months and also keep your deck or backyard clutter free.
Backyard storage bins can be made out of wood, either eucalyptus, teak or cedar, which are all water resistant and coated with a clear finish that will protect them even more. These are a good choice but not as good as wicker.
Another popular material to make storage bins out of is wicker. Also known as rattan this product is made out of bamboo, reed, willow or synthetic fibers. It is then coated with a resin type material to protect it from the elements. A very good choice, however still not as good as a plastic resin composite.
A more popular way to make backyard storage bins these days is out of a plastic/resin composite. These are definitely a lot more durable and stronger than wicker or wood.
They also will not peel, dent or rust over time and as long as you keep them clean they will look brand new for many years. Since the colors are baked in when it is being molded at the factory it will keep a brilliant finish for many years to come for you.
Cleaning any of these three types is a snap with a garden hose, some soapy water and a scrub brush. Simply hose the down and lightly scrub with a soapy brush. Next just rinse of the dirt and let it air dry.
Another advantage of today’s backyard storage bins is that a lot of them also double as a seat or table.
