Should You Build a Shed or Buy a Portable Garage?

If you own a house, you are probably planning to spend a good amount of time this spring and summer working on your lawn and garden. Your lawnmower, rake, and gardening tools can take up a great deal of space.

Many people do not have enough room to store all of their lawn and garden equipment in a garage. If your garage is already filled with vehicles and you don’t have enough space to fit your lawn care equipment, you will need to find another place to store it to protect it from rain that could cause rust and from other types of damage.

Pros and Cons of Building a Shed

One solution that many people choose is to build a shed. A shed is a simple building that can provide you with the space you need to store your lawn and garden equipment and can keep it protected from the elements.

A shed has downsides. For one, if you are going to build the shed yourself, you will need to go to the trouble of designing it, buying the materials, and then constructing it. That process can take weeks. If you need to get a permit from your local government before you can start, it could take even longer.

Building a shed can be expensive. You can reduce the cost somewhat if you do it yourself, but if you don’t know how and need to hire someone, it will cost more.

Benefits of Choosing a Portable Garage

A simpler and less expensive solution is to set up a portable garage in your yard. You can purchase a portable garage kit with all of the materials you will need and set it up in an afternoon. A portage garage is constructed with a heavy-duty steel frame and a polyethylene cover that can resist damage from rain, snow, wind, and the sun’s UV rays so your lawn and garden equipment will be protected.

You can choose one that is the right size for your needs and the amount of space you have available in your yard and have it set up in a fraction of the time it would take to build a shed.
