Spruce up the shedIf your shed’s looking rundown and unruly, now’s the time to get it spick and span for spring. There isn’t always enough room to store everything you’d like, so it’s important to prioritise what you really need to keep, whether that’s bikes, garden equipment or DIY tools. Start by decluttering; to make the task less overwhelming, you could take one wall at a time. Allocate each item to one of three piles – keep, recycle, donate. Once you’ve done this, you can figure out what storage you actually need, such as shelving units, wall shelves and pegboards. Keep garden tools, such as spades, forks and rakes, off the floor by hanging them on hooks, and install a bike rack to store your cycles.If you have enough time, it’s worth painting the internal walls white before you put everything back. Bright walls will lighten up the shed and make it easier to locate everything inside.

Wash your watering gearWhether you’re a watering fanatic or slightly less committed to keeping your plants hydrated, chances are you have a hosepipe, watering cans and perhaps a water butt, too. Start by removing anything that’s broken, then take some time to wash out and disinfect your water butt in preparation for it getting nice and full over the winter. Clean your hosepipe and any attachments, and find a dry spot inside the shed for them, along with your just-washed watering cans. Alternatively, wrap up the hosepipe and attachments in a plastic sheet to protect them from frost and grime over the winter.Find the perfect evergreen shrub for year-round interest in your garden

Don’t forget the outsideIf your project involves some external work, do that outside decluttering you’ve been putting off. Clear away all those items you’ve left outside to deal with in the future, as the future has now arrived! Hire a skip or a van and get rid of your accumulated junk. If it’s not junk, add to your project budget by selling your unwanted possessions.

Make it a feature A nicely proportioned garden shed can be just as stylish as other more expensive garden structures. Use exterior paint to make a feature of it. This blue-grey shade works beautifully with the surrounding green foliage and the grey of the galvanised containers. The restrained colour palette makes the scene feel natural and restful, while the orange chair brings a dash of zing to the scheme.

Can grey-water recycling reduce bills, and how expensive is it to install?Grey-water recycling not only reduces the amount of water used, it also leads to significant savings on your water bills,” says Shearer. “You can claim back the waste water charge on the portion of water that has been reused, as it’s being used twice but only being discharged to drain once,” he explains. Aquaco’s most basic domestic grey-water systems start at £2,394. They’re designed to be simple to install and don’t require specialist knowledge. That said, if you’re not DIY savvy, call in the professionals. “Installation can be done by any plumber and electrician, and will probably add about £1,500 to a new build,” continues Shearer. “This size system will treat up to 420 litres a day, so will accommodate almost all domestic environments.”
