Can Gasoline-Powered Equipment Be Stored in a Portable Garage?

If you own a house, you most likely have a yard that you like to keep well maintained. With spring coming up, you will probably be spending a good amount of your free time in your yard mowing the grass, trimming bushes, and working in your garden.

Where to Store Lawn and Gardening Equipment

You will need a place to store your lawn and gardening equipment. If you don’t have space in your garage or a shed, you can set up a portable garage in your yard.

Some lawn care equipment is powered by gasoline. Gasoline-powered tools need to be stored carefully outside to reduce the risk of a fire. A portable garage is a safe place to store gasoline-powered lawn and gardening equipment.

How to Store Gasoline-Powered Equipment Safely

Before you store gasoline-powered lawn or gardening equipment in a portable garage, you should take some steps to reduce the risk of a fire. Wipe down the equipment first to remove any gasoline residue. If you store spare gasoline in your portable garage, be sure to keep it in a container that meets safety guidelines.

How to Choose a Portable Garage

If you are planning to work in your yard this spring and summer, make sure you have the right equipment for the job and a place to store it and protect it from the elements. If you decide to use a portable garage, you need to choose one carefully. Look for a building that is designed to stand up to the elements, including the sun’s harsh UV rays. The portable garage should have a strong metal frame and a cover that is made to stand up to severe weather.
