Here are some useful tips on how to protect your garden shed.
Keep Your Shed Locked
An outdoor shed should be always locked when you’re not inside. The criminals always check for the openings to easily come in.
Provide your shed with the sound padlock and utilise it every time you close it.
If you have lots of valuable items stored in your shed storage, it is better to set up sensors on the doors and windows to be alerted in case of somebody’s attempt to break in.
Keep Your Shed Structurally Sturdy
Find out the problem places in your shed. Reinforce the loose units, seal all the holes and substitute any corroded window framed or doors. Any weak parts make it easier for thieves to break in your shed and steal its contents.
Fortify with Plants and Surrounds
Make it difficult for thieves to access your garden shed. Planting prickly bushes and thorny plants around your shed is a good way to restrain unwanted guests. Moreover, they look nice and add some value to your property.
One more way to deter thieves is to use gravel on paths leading to your shed. Criminals are not willing to be heard.
Add Window Coverings
If your shed structure has a window, put up curtains, louvres or any other covering to avoid showing up the contents inside your outdoor shed. The advertising of your equipment can be attractive to thieves.
