Freshly cut into short lengths, a good stock of fire­wood is a re­as­sur­ing sight and an at­trac­tive fea­ture in your gar­den. Ob­vi­ously, it needs to be left out­side to sea­son prop­erly, so rais­ing it off the ground in a rack or store with a slop­ing roof will help shield it from the el­e­ments. Open sides al­low air to cir­cu­late well and a rel­a­tively shel­tered po­si­tion is best, where there can be some pro­tec­tion from slant­ing rain. Di­vid­ing your store into sec­tions, as in this cus­tom­made rack, makes the wood both eas­ier to stack and to ac­cess.
