Storage Options for Smaller Backyards

Need extra space to store things but don’t have a huge backyard? No problem—there are plenty of smaller storage sheds that are designed for those who have limited space. In fact, some of these sheds will even fit in your side yard. Just because they’re small, though, doesn’t mean they can’t be the perfect storage solution for you. Here are some of these small sheds that might be exactly what you need.

The ShelterLogic Garden Shed

This ShelterLogic little garden shed is different from many other options because the sides and top are not metal or wood. Instead, they’re made from waterproof polyester. The steel frame is very easy to assemble, though and can be put together in about 30 minutes. Once it’s done, you have a four by four protected space to store all of your gardening tools and other items. You can fit this little shed on your patio, up against your home, or even on a balcony. With proper anchoring, it will withstand most weather conditions.

The Arrow Shed-in-a-Box

Arrow’s unique Shed-in-a-Box is exactly what it sounds like. The entire steel shed comes packed in a flat box. It includes everything you need to build the six by four shed. Once completed, you have a safe and secure place to store anything. The unique Dutch door allows you to look through the shed without actually stepping inside it, while the angled roof guarantees water will not pool on the shed. 

The Spacemaker Patio Steel Storage Shed

Spacemaker’s line of patio steel sheds was designed for those who have very little space but need extra storage. These three sheds can fit on your patio, balcony, or in even the smallest of backyards. The smallest shed is four foot by three foot, though five foot and six foot options are also available. The sheds are easy to put together, and the door or double doors for the larger sizes can be secured to protect your contents. These sheds are also very budget-friendly, so you can add storage without spending a lot of money. In addition to a standard white color, this shed also comes in teal, so you can use it to add a pop of color to your backyard.

Storboss Horizontal Shed

Storboss’s compact shed measures six foot by three foot and is perfect for storing patio furniture, sports gear, holiday décor, and your yard tools. This shed is only a little over four foot tall, but to account for its lack of height, the to actually raises up via pneumatic lifts. The front of the shed is made up of two large doors, so it’s very easy to get your items into and out of the shed. 

EZEE Shed 

The EZEE steel storage shed comes in several large sizes, but the six-foot by five-foot option will fit in most small backyards. If you need a little more storage than what some of these sheds offer, this may be the best solution for you. Like the other sheds, it comes in a kit, but installation is fairly simple. You don’t need advanced skills or any unique or expensive tools to put it together. 

These sheds are all ideal for small spaces. If you add a set of shelves or other organizational items, even the smallest shed can hold everything you need in an organized, easy-to-find manner.
