You don't need to trip over the bicycles anymore, a handy storage unit that it fit for bikes of any size will keep them clean and intact, while ensuring they're out of sight too.

Keep your bottles safe and secure, while being easily accessible too. You don't want to run inside every time during that house party just to get another bottle of your favourite drink.

3. For the grill

There's nothing more annoying than having to look for your braai items every weekend. Lock them away next to your grill and they will always be perfectly accessible.

4. Birdcage turned flower holder

Since your parakeet is no more, convert that old birdcage into a fantastic hanging flower arrangement.

5. Against the walls

The walls of your small garden can be used to create storage for pot plants or even a simple outdoor dining area. This long alley may be narrow, but it's personality packs a punch.
