Bluum Stores hand-make each bespoke green roof bin, recycling & log storage unit to the customer's specification, to ensure that it meets the required size and style, and fits in well with both their garden and lifestyle.  Every one has been different in some way, and although a little more expensive than an 'off the shelf' solution, each is made with passion and care from high quality materials.  Our bin, recycling and firewood stores are made to last. 

Below is a selection of the different custom-made 'green roof' bin tidies and bespoke wheelie bin, dustbin, recycling bin and log stores we have made and installed to date.

Teddington, London: Dustbin & Recycling Bin Store

Made to house two traditional dustbins and two recycling boxes, this bin & recycling box storage unit was designed and made for a customer in Teddington.  It was then sent flat-packed for very easy self-assembly, and the customer has added a selection of alpine plants to the green roof:

Bristol: Recycling Box & Food Waste Storage Unit with Green Roof

This low-level recycling storage unit was commissioned by a family in Bristol, to provide a tidy place to store their recycling boxes and food caddy.  They wanted something unobtrusive, not being much higher than the front wall.  They have since lovingly planted the roof with a selection of alpines.  These will soon spread to fill the green roof area nicely:

North Somerset: Tall Wheelie Bin, Recycling Bin & Food Waste Shed with Sedum Roof

A tall, triple-width bin storage unit with sedum roof; to tidy away two wheelie bins and three recycling boxes.  At 1.6m high, this unit gives plenty of space to house the wheelie bins, as well as being able to open them fully to deposit their waste.  The extra space also comes in handy for deliveries, giving couriers a dry place to leave parcels out of sight.

Bristol: Multiple Recycling Box & Food Caddy Storage  

This sloped site is the front entryway to a large building in Clifton, Bristol, now divided into flats.  The tenants were struggling to keep numerous recycling boxes tidy, and so wanted a bespoke recycling storage unit.  This now houses up to 9 recycling boxes and 4 food caddies.  The 'growing roof' planter area will also make a pleasing green addition to the front aspect of this beautiful building, when filled with plants:

North Somerset: Green Waste Bin & Compost Storage with Planter Roof  

A simple bin store to tidy away a green waste wheelie bin and bags of compost.

Bath: Wheelie Bin & Recycling Bin Storage Unit 

Made to match this customer's existing log store, this 'growing roof' bin store now keeps two wheelie bins and recycling boxes tidily out of sight on the driveway of a lovingly refurbished home in Farmborough, near Bath.  The pressure treated timber will become more of a 'honey' colour soon, and blend in nicely with the fencing.  A shelf in the thinner middle section creates two areas for the recycling boxes:

A triple width, open fronted bin store. This was made for GreenBird Gardening, as part of a huge garden transformation.  Bluum Stores are made into flat-pack style panels, so this was installed 'on site' in less than 20 minutes: very handy for staying out of the way of the other trades working on site that day.  The green roof is fully lined, ready to house a selection of sedums, other succulents or alpines, herbs or grasses:

Bristol: Double Wheelie Bin Store with Green Roof

A bespoke bin storage unit for two wheelie bins, with a door and a fixed panel at the front.  The existing brick wall in this customer's front garden, as well as the limited space available to work with, demanded some very exact dimensions and a few design hurdles to overcome.  This bin store now tidies away the wheelie bins, as well as bringing more green space to the garden with the green roof planter:

Exeter, Devon: Log, Wheelie Bin, Recycling Bin & Food Caddy Storage 

In a stunning home near Exeter, this customer wanted to make a useful feature of this old oil tank stand, and asked us to make a very deep log store to sit on top of it, as well as a bin store on either side.  They can now tidy away two wheelie bins, all of their recycling boxes, a food caddy and a huge amount of logs to keep them going all Winter:

Hertfordshire: Triple Width Wheelie Bin & Recycling Box Store 

This customer in a Hertfordshire village requested a custom-made triple width bin storage unit, with a green roof she has now filled with alpines, chives, thyme and alpine strawberries.  This makes for a much nicer view out of the back of her house than the previous pile of wheelie bins and recycling boxes:

Chiswick, West London: Wheelie Bin & Recycling Box Storage

This project in a leafy street in Chiswick, West London, required a green roof bin storage unit to hold a large wheelie bin and three recycling boxes.  Height was an issue here, so we kept it as low as possible whilst utilising as much storage space inside the store as possible:

Bristol: Recycling Box Storage for Flats 

This block of flats in Clifton, Bristol had a huge number of recycling boxes littering their entryway, often blowing around in the wind.  We made this recycling storage unit to fit snugly into a nook facing their front door; it'll look even nicer once the plants have been added into the green roof and really tidies their outside space:
