Deck Boxes

Store Outdoor Items Inside a Deck Box

A deck box is a great solution for keeping clutter out of your yard and off your patio. The right outdoor storage box also adds extra seating to your space, making it a great outdoor addition for those who like to entertain during the summer months. Shop deck boxes and outdoor storage solutions at Walmart Canada online or visit your nearest store to see what's available. 

Choosing the Right Deck Box for Your Outdoor Space

Deck boxes are large storage bins or trunks that are meant to store items outdoors. They're a great way to reduce clutter on your patio or in your yard and provide a secure storage solution for items including children's toys, cushions from your patio furniture, pool chemicals and gardening tools. 

The deck box you choose depends on your particular storage needs. If you're storing liquids, you'll likely want to store them alone in case of leaks; therefore, a smaller box is probably best. If you're storing larger, bulkier items, a large box is typically better. Larger deck boxes are also best if you're hoping to use one for extra seating in your yard. Some are even designed for double duty and include a comfortable bench seat on top, such as the International Caravan Barcelona patio storage bench.

Plastic, Resin or Wood? 

Deck boxes come in a variety of materials, but the most common ones are plastic, resin or wood. These materials each offer their own benefits. 


  • Durable.
  • Lightweight and easy to move.
  • May resist rusting or peeling.
  • Moisture resistant.


  • Woodlike finish.
  • Generally lightweight and easy to move.
  • Shouldn't fade or crack as long as its cared for properly.


  • Usually made from moisture-resistant woods.
  • Comes in varied finishes and looks.
  • Can be carved for customization.

While each of these materials comes with its own list of benefits, each requires specific maintenance as well. It's important to check the manual that comes with your deck box to ensure proper maintenance instructions are followed so your deck box can remain in good condition.

Features to Consider

Every patio storage box comes with its own set of special features. While some may simply be a simple, weather-proof storage bench, others include special details that make it easier to move, keep organized or secure. Depending on what you're storing, you may want to look for a deck box that includes all or some of the following features. 

  • Shelves, baskets or nets to make it easy to keep your items organized while they're in storage.
  • Locks or latches for storing valuables.
  • Handles to make it easier to move your deck box around the yard or indoors for the winter.
  • Soft-close mechanisms to prevent fingers from being caught under the lid.
  • Wheels and casters to help you slide your box from one place to another.
  • Gas hinges to keep the lid in the open position while you're cleaning or organizing items inside the deck storage box box.

Deck Box Assembly

Outdoor storage boxes are normally easy to assemble and in most cases, tools aren't required. If you're looking for something foolproof, check for a box that snaps together, such as the Suncast 73 weatherproof resin wicker outdoor storage box. At Walmart Canada, you can find deck storage boxes in a variety sizes and styles, including some in bright colours and fun designs.
