Springtime Tips for Organizing Your Storage Shed

Spring is right around the corner, which means the days of lawn and garden maintenance are upon us! Before you dive head first into your list of springtime outdoor projects, let’s explore how a well-organized garden shed can save you time, money, and sanity!

Let’s face it. We all want a beautiful yard, but we don’t all enjoy the time and effort it takes to achieve it.  You may be someone with a green thumb who finds peace and relaxation working outside, or maybe you are the type that feels lucky when you remember to water your lawn. Either way, organization is the key to success.

Here are some ways you can keep your storage shed organized and maintain your peace of mind all at the same time.

Cabins and Frogs: A Match Made in Heaven

“Your child has cancer.” These are some of the most terrifying words a parent can hear. No one is ever prepared for news of that magnitude, which turns a family’s life upside down. According to the American Cancer Society, pediatric cancer is the second leading cause of death in children under age fifteen, second only to vehicular accidents.

The lives of one North Texas family spun into a whirlwind during the winter of 2010 when they received heart wrenching news. Two-year-old Coleson was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. The family was completely taken aback, and the next few weeks were a blur. By God’s grace, Coleson underwent a successful surgery only weeks later to have the tumor removed. Then he endured seven weeks of proton radiation at M.D. Anderson in Houston. 

Coleson then and now

Coleson’s mother Julie and his father Regi recall how frogs became a reoccurring theme during that difficult time. The family discovered that FROG stood for Fully Rely On God, and it was clear to them God had a plan for them all along.

5 Signs You Need a Storage Shed

 

There are more than five smart reasons to decide to buy a backyard storage shed, but after working with thousands of customers, these five scenarios jumped to the top of the list!

1. When your car has never seen the inside of your garage

garage storage

We have all done it. We move items intended for a garage sale into the garage in hopes of organizing it one weekend. Or we just aren’t quite ready to get rid of those baby items we no longer need (ever heard the term sentimental value?) Or maybe the garage has become the catch-all for clutter we don’t want guests to see.

Leland's Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

Did you know it is estimated that in the year 2016, there will be approximately 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in the U.S. alone? Or that 40,450 women suffering from breast cancer will lose their battle with the disease? These and other staggering statistics regarding breast cancer can be found on the Susan G. Komen website.  The work Susan G. Komen performs is a key part in the fight against breast cancer. Susan G. Komen helps fund the research for a cure, and supports women who are uninsured or underinsured to receive adequate care. In addition, they also educate and spread awareness of the deadly disease. Although not everyone will battle breast cancer in their lifetime, there is a very large likelihood that someone you know and love will.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year Leland’s Barns is going pink in the fight against breast cancer! Leland’s is proud to support the ongoing research, education, and prevention by donating 1% of their total gross sales during the month of October to the Susan G. Komen foundation. Each and every purchase makes an impact this month. Purchase your storage shed, carport, playhouse or gazebo at any one of our 20+ Texas locations in the month of October and YOU are making a difference in the lives of countless women all over the United States!

The Importance of Creativity and Imagination in Children’s Playtime

Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” What can we do to give our children a place where play, creativity, and imagination are encouraged? Is creative, imaginative play important?

 In our society, the desire to stay connected through technology is growing rapidly. This need for constant connectivity affects our children even at a very young age as parents (and children!) spend more and more time online.

Company Lends Hearts, Hands, and Hammers for Habitat for Humanity

Trucks line the streets and fill grassy lots. The sounds of power saws, generators, nail guns, and hammering fill the air of a rural town in North Central Texas. What is usually a small, quiet town—simply a blink of the eye as you travel Interstate 35—has come alive with the generosity of a local business with a heart for helping others. Leland’s Barns, located in Grandview, Texas, graciously reached out to assist the Hill County Habitat for Humanity organization on their current project in Itasca, Texas.

Leland’s Barns is founded on the principles of honoring God as leader in all they do, creating opportunities for individuals to make a difference, and creating a culture of excellence to serve the community with a level of service that is second to none. So it is no surprise that Leland’s was eager to shut down operations at their plant to donate the man hours and skills of over thirty construction employees.

Pretend Play is Good for You!

pretend-play-is-good-for-you.jpg

Research has revealed that modern children play outdoors just half as much as their parents did when they were young. Today's youth are more inclined to stay indoors and watch television, play computer games and, in some cases, even do their homework, than go outside to play, according to researchers.

A SHEDS MANY USES

Clients may use a shed as a man cave, or a personal space that offers privacy from the sometimes busy feel of a home. Men and women can both use a shed as a hideaway chamber, decked out with creature comforts, such as a plush couch and a mini-refrigerator. Clients love lounging about their shed man caves. Having the personal space to relax after a busy day at work is invaluable, and owning a shed Man Cave is a less costly option than adding on to a home. The shed Man Cave is a perfect solution for people seeking that quiet down time from the hectic nature of life.

The Blessing of Appreciation

b2ap3_thumbnail_MS-Trail-Ride.jpgEvery moment of every day presents a new opportunity to grasp even a spark of appreciation for our Heavenly Father. It is as easy as taking a drink of soda, eating a candy bar, or even screaming at our kids, hating a friend or family member, or whatever takes you away from this most important moment of your life, and boom, you lose the sweetness of what real life is.
