Portable Shelters for Your Garden

By: Cooper Lyon

When you last saw portable shelters there's a good chance this will have been in a corporate or commercial setting or at some kind of event. For fairs and tradeshows an instant shelter is an ideal way to keep everyone protected and warm without paying for a permanent installation, and at the same time the fact that temporary shelters are easy to move means that they can be built anywhere and taken down when necessary.

However portable shelters are far from being just spaces that you use in commercial settings. Actually they have many uses around the home and there are many ways you can benefit from similar temporary shelters in your own garden. Here we will look at some.

Car Shelters: Temporary garages are ideal car shelters with many advantages over regular garages that are more permanent fixtures in your garden. If you are renting first and foremost then car shelters that you can take down mean that you don't need to get permission and they mean that you aren't wasting the money. At the same time they're quicker and easier to erect and much cheaper and they also make a good car workshop for when you want to work on your car.

Canopies: Having canopies in your garden is a great idea for a range of different purposes. By having canopies you are providing yourself with a shelter of course for if it is bad weather and giving yourself somewhere to have barbeques and parties if it rains. At the same time in the summer it can provide the perfect shelter from the searing sun and it's ideal for storing things under to keep them from melting or going off.

Portable Greenhouses: If you are interested in growing plants and vegetables then managing their climate is important. However not everyone is able to grow a greenhouse in their garden, and further not everyone would want to commit to the gardening that much. To this end portable greenhouses give you a way to keep your plants sheltered from the harsher weather and heated to the extent they are comfortable in. This also gives you the ability to remove the portable greenhouses if and when it is appropriate so they don't get too hot and to let them get some rain.

Sheds: Sheds don't have to be made from wood; portable shelters are just as appropriate and have many benefits being again of course cheaper and easier to construct and move around. This then gives you somewhere to keep your tools and items and avoids rusty spades and bikes without meaning that you have to spend a whole lot and have your garden dug up. These can also make nice 'summer houses' that you can sit in to listen to the rain overhead or to get the warmth from the sun.

In other words then instant shelters have a vast range of potential benefits and you needn't think of them as just tents for large groups and events. If your garden could use a patch of shelter, or your car is regularly frozen in the morning then they might be right for you.
