Looking for a garden log store to help keep you cosy in the warm months? We're here to help. As the cold weather starts to set in, those lucky enough to have open fireplaces and stoves in their homes will likely be stocking up on dry wood to get them through the winter months. However, the more dry wood we use, the more we find piles of wood building up inside the home, which is why many choose to bulk-buy wood and use a garden storage solution like a garden log store.

What is a garden log store?
A garden log store is typically a wooden structure made of FSC-certified wood (such as pine or larch) that is treated to prevent rot and dampness. They normally have a raised platform, a roof and two sides in order to be able to stack wood. Some garden log stores have lids, and covers and can also be made of steel or metal.
They vary in size too, ranging from the same size as a garden shed to a smaller narrower option. Some come with shelves to make it easier to stack the wood.
What wood can be stored in a log store?
You can store any type of wood in garden log store, but be aware that some wood needs a lot more time to dry than others.
Experts say hardwoods such as ash, oak, birch, or beech are generally the best wood for burning and are recommended over softwoods like pine.
