Vertical, hard board utility are fitting for rakes, hoes, shovels, etc. because they stand tall.
Deck and patio storage sheds are convenient for items you would use near or on the porch, like grilling tools, pool cleaning supplies, extra porch chairs or benches.

Outdoor sheds are often made from aluminum or other hardy materials and many can have vents or windows, which are perfect for both the aesthetic of the shed and for sheds in which a lot of time may be spent. Storage buildings can also add value to your home.
