Where to put all that… stuff? Patio and garden items can be a pain to store inside or in a garage, as they are often far from the patio or garden area. For convenient outdoor storage, we suggest using a deck box. The DBW9200 Deck Box, made by Suncast, is one of the best bench-style deck boxes around, and we picked it as the best budget deck box available in 2017. Its attractive resin wicker style finish makes it a great choice for those who will spend a lot of time looking at their deck box, as opposed to those who can squirrel it away in a corner, outside of primary view. The Suncast DBW9200 is not the largest deck box on the market, but it is pretty well sized with a 99 gallon capacity, and can function both as a storage container and a handy bench for when you have guests over for an outdoor soiree!
The Suncast VDB19500J Backyard Oasis Deck Box is perhaps the most elegant looking deck box available on the market today. With lines and finish resembling indoor wicker furniture, as opposed to the classic squat, cooler-like design common in resin deck boxes made by many manufacturers, the aesthetics of this storage system are outstanding. This unit is known as the Backyard Oasis storage and entertaining station, and it is appropriately named. Of course, no one can sit on the Suncast Vertical Deck Box (except maybe a bird!), but this deck box isn’t designed to be used for seating, but rather as a backdrop to a pleasant garden area, with 195 gallons of storage capacity and well thought out functionality. The VDB19500J is an outstanding deck box with many great use cases, and in this article we will review the product, and examine how it might best be used in an outdoor area.
The Rubbermaid Resin Slide Lid Shed is a versatile, functional outdoor storage container that is larger than most deck boxes, but does not have the presence and bulk of a traditional gable storage shed.

The Keter Rockwood Deck Box is an attractive coffee-colored resin panel deck box. Its extra large size and structure make it a potentially useful asset in many patio and garden spaces. The reasonably-decent looks, and effective storage capacity make it a great choice among deck boxes.
