Top 10 Storage units and bin sheds

Created by Anna Kapuvari

We all suffer from shortage of storage spaces especially in some front gardens. Creating a tidy garden starts with an appropriate- sized shed. These are some instances of bin stores and storage containers that were cleverly built.

  1. Cedar bin shed

    Nothing extravagant, simply a basic IPE hardwood building with shelves inside, flush with the existing yew hedging. Stores up to four bins and creates a straightforward yet effective structure.

  2. IPE hardwood bin store with planting on top

    Would you wish to get rid of the garbage regions’ odour? The best solution is to plant some fragrant Mediterranean herbs on top to cover up the odours.

  3. Tall shed for garden tools

    A straightforward building built to house all of your gardening tools vertically, including a fork, a spade, a lawnmower, and a separate shelf for smaller tools, is the cedar clapboard shed with a cedar shingle roof.

  4. Spacious bin storage for wheelie bins

    Shed sizes can be increased if you have the room and a lot of items to store. You may effortlessly pull out your bins with the aid of a tall, cosy construction.

  5. The absolute rustic

    You just have a small path to move on; there isn’t much room around you. This long, narrow storage container made entirely of rustic, salvaged materials fits perfectly in a front yard.

  6. Softwood shed

    If it’s raining, you don’t need a large store, but you’d still like to store your chairs there. Employ a structure like this light softwood shed to go with the colourful cottage landscaping around.

  7. Reclaimed wood and planting on top

    3 storage places in a reclaimed pinewood bin storage box. Using aromatic herbs to mask bad odours, the top planting continues the cottage-style planting of the front garden.

  8. Shed combined with pergola

    The pergola joined by a cedar framework. A lovely narrow building that is perfect for storing gardening equipment and tableware for the tiny coffee table and chairs.

  9. Seat storage

    If you don’t have enough room for a shed, you can still use the space under the bench for a cleverly hidden storage box.

  10. The ultimate fit

    We can build a shed that will accommodate your bins even in the most awkward locations, and we can add some vegetation to the top to add some lighting.

Top 10 plants for cottage style borders

Created by Anna Kapuvari

Cottage-style gardens are some of the most fruitful for both gardeners and garden owners because their perennial beauty draws in pollinators like bees and butterflies and provides refuge and food for a wide variety of wildlife. So, choose the right species is essential if you want your garden to be interesting throughout the year. Our top picks for a charming cottage garden border.

  1. Geraniums

    Geraniums are a safe pick if you need a groundcover or a plant to edge a border. They are available in a wide variety of shades, but pinks, blues, and whites are particularly common. Once they begin blooming, it’s very difficult to stop them from producing a dome-shaped, multicoloured swath along the border.

  2. Alliums

    This gorgeous bulb blooms in late spring or early summer and adds a stunning architectural element to your border. They range in size from chives to the Globemaster and are typically lavender, pink, and white in colour. Keep them on while they dry out to ensure they return the following year.

  3. Sisyrinchium striatum

    The pale yellow-eyed grass is the plant to use if you want a touch of yellow to provide vertical flair. Although most individuals would choose a white-and-purple colour scheme for their borders, it’s always a good idea to pair purple with another complementary colour, such as yellow.

  4. Astrantias

    Another dependable bunch that keeps on blooming, especially if you deadhead it. They thrive in both full sun and partial shade, making them an ideal plant for bridging the gap between the two extremes.

  5. Foeniculum vulgare

    Fennel is a popular culinary herb that, when in flower, can add a towering 2 metres in height to your garden border. Its understated foliage provides a soothing backdrop for more vibrant perennials. As an added bonus, you can get them in a bronze hue, which will look great in any garden with a copper theme.

  6. Stipa tenuissima

    We need attractive grasses, and the best option is the Mexican feather grass, if we want to create a border in the cottage style. The smooth, swaying leaves of this grass are unlike any others, making it a perfect backdrop when combined with plants of any kind.

  7. Campanula glomerata

    Ideal for the middle of the border, since it won’t outgrow the other plants there but will tower over shorter ones like verbenas and agastaches. The spectacular bubble of white petals produced by the Campanula g. ‘Alba’ makes it an ideal partner to red roses and other brightly coloured perennials.

  8. Cynara cardunculus

    The globe artichoke is another edible border plant. Its flowering stem can grow to be around 2.5 metres tall, therefore it’s best to plant it towards the back of the border so it has room to expand. Its silvery leaves will make a great contrast with purple flowers, and its sturdy frame will lend your border a sense of order.

  9. Aquilegias

    A dependable bunch of plants available in every imaginable hue. It quickly self-seeds, but the dried seedcaps are delicious. They can be utilised as a bridge plant between the sunnier and shadier portions of your garden because of their tolerance of shade.

  10. Hydrangeas

    Keep in mind that roses and hydrangeas are essential components of any cottage-style garden. Selecting a variety of these deciduous shrubs during their flowering period will provide a longer period of bloom and will prevent any other plants from getting the spotlight. Flowers with any shape or size, including those with mop-heads, lace-caps, or paniculate blooms, are encouraged to visit.
