Out With The Old, In With The New!

High Quality Robust range of Metal Sheds, Garages, Workshops & Outdoor Buildings


As we look out at the grey skies, wet ground and leafless trees, many of us will be longing for the arrival of spring. Although the garden does not look like it will in the summer, there are still tasks that need doing outdoors in the fresh air if you’re feeling inspired. These include trimming away dead growth, cleaning tubs and pots, clearing out beds, and of course planning which new plants and designs you would like.

It’s a good idea to check any mechanical gardening equipment you own for functioning fails, including things like lawnmowers, rotavators, hedge trimmers, edgers and strimmers. If items need repairing or sharpening take them to a qualified professional. Cementing and painting should perhaps be avoided at this time, but other preparation projects may be started. You can carry out jobs such as putting up a fence, creating a terrace or laying decking or gravel paths. You could begin the first stages of building a rock garden while plants are still dormant. You might decide to invest in a new garden shed, and this is the perfect time of year to get rid of the old one. Your garden shed is important if you want somewhere clean, dry and safe to store tools, garden furniture, electrical equipment and other items.

The team at SM Garden Sheds never let the grass grow [unless it’s in the garden that is], and have announced some exciting changes to their outdoor building range. Their new range of Lifetime Special Edition Sheds offer the same exceptional quality plastic buildings, but now with additional features.

3 Main Benefits of Outdoor Play

Children’s Outdoor Play Equipment, Playhouses & Climbing Frames for Domestic or Commercial Use


It’s a fact that children love to play outdoors all year round. Not only that, it’s a great way to ensure that they get all of the health benefits associated with fresh air and exercise, of which there are a lot, a small example being…..

1. Exercise

Exercise is incredibly important for everyone, but especially children, as their bodies have not yet fully developed. Running, riding bikes, having snowball fights and climbing are all activities that will provide so much more than just playing on video games will. They allow proper growth and development of bones, muscles, coordination, imagination, problem solving and social skills.

2. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is provided by the sun and is essential for promoting elevated moods, energy levels, memory and overall health. Even 10 to 15 minutes worth of time spent outdoors, whatever the weather is enough to deliver the daily requirement of vitamin D.

3. Boosted Immune System

It is well known that immune systems are boosted when they come into contact with everyday muck, bacteria, pests etc on a regular basis in the open air. This means fit, young bodies, that can deal with the normal things thrown at them like allergies.
