Cooler temperatures and falling leaves are the first signs of autumn and that means it’s time to get your yard ready for the cold winter ahead. Getting to work on a few fall chores will not only make your yard look better now, but it will make it healthier when spring arrives again. A portable storage container can be just the tool you need to get your yard in tip-top shape for fall. Here are just a few of the ways you can get the most out of fall yard work with the help of a portable storage container.


Storing Your Tools

Fall yard work can mean lots of tools and equipment and many people just don’t have room in their garage to store all of this bulky equipment. A portable storage container is perfect because it provides a spacious place where you can keep your tools onsite and easily accessible. Things like a rake, shovel, wheelbarrow, trimmers, lawn mower, aerator, and more can easily be stored inside the container. When you are finished with all of the yard work, simply have the storage container picked up and transported to a facility for long-term storage during the winter months.


Storing Supplies

Fall is the perfect time to add a little fresh mulch, fertilize the lawn, and even plant some spring bulbs. A portable storage container is a great place to store everything from bags of mulch and fertilizer to trays of plants and spring bulbs. You can have everything you need right there in one place and it will be safe from the outdoor elements until you are ready to use it.


Transplant or Move Shrubs and Perennials

Some plants and flowers can’t withstand the harsh winter weather and need to be dug up and kept in a warm, dry place during the winter months. A portable storage container is the perfect place to store these plants and perennials so they will remain healthy throughout the winter and ready to be planted again come spring.


Save Your Leaves

Fallen leaves can actually be extremely useful and can help to improve your garden. If you keep all of the leaves that you have raked, they will eventually break down and turn into a wonderful compose full of rich nutrients for your spring garden. A portable storage container is a great place to store these bags of leaves until you are ready to compost them. It also keeps bags of leaves from taking over the sidewalk and curb of your house.


Prep Hoses and Sprinklers for Winter

Part of your fall yard work also involves winterizing hoses, irrigation systems, and other water sources. This is the time to disconnect all hoses, sprinklers, wands, and irrigation systems and roll them up and put them away for the season. Not everyone has ample space to store all of these water supplies in a dry space where they won’t be exposed to the outdoor elements. A portable storage container is a great place to store and organize all of this equipment.
