Aussie backyards are changing as our houses are getting bigger and bigger and our gardens are shrinking. Our lifestyles are impacting our homes and it’s interesting to see how things have changed.
As a Storage Solution Provider, we have seen how things have changed as our own service and products adapt to the market needs. Take a quick glimpse into how things have changed before and after the ’90s.
Before the ’90s
Before the 90’s the Australian’s backyards were significantly bigger, quarter-acre or even larger blocks were very common in most areas.
Being a kid was a lot different back then and the time that is being spent in front of the computers nowadays was mainly enjoyed in the backyard.
After the ’90s
As a result of our changing demographics, Australian homes are getting bigger and their backyards are decreasing. Houses built after the ’90s are taking up 40-50% of the blocks and the average land size is well below a quarter-acre.
Most of the suburban homes have large concrete or paved areas and their small gardens are very low maintenance. With lifestyle changes, today’s people are way too busy to look after their lawn or garden, and they want to spend their free time with a different type of activities. Smaller gardens, low maintenance plants, less work, and therefore less gardening tools are needed.
Lifestyle VS Storage
With lifestyle changes, today’s people are way too busy to look after their lawn or garden, and they want to spend their free time with different types of activities.
Smaller gardens, low maintenance plants, less work, and therefore less gardening tools are needed.
Before these times, large workshops, big garden sheds, and sheds the size of homes were highly sought after. There are still people who seek these but there is a more diverse market today.
Today we have a huge range catering for farms, large properties to small backyards, and apartment living.
For homes with a small green block, the slimline garden storage units are ideal storage solutions to keep gardening tools and backyards equipment safe and away from the sun.
There are also little cabinets and deck boxes for those who live in apartments or villas.
Our Absco Spacesaver slimline storage units and some of our YardSaver models are the most popular sheds in medium and high-density urban areas. They can be placed right against the wall to save even more space in the already tiny backyards and the roofs drive the rain away from the house sloping towards the front of the shed.
These units come in a flat pack made for the do it yourself market and can be easily assembled within a few hours.
