I'm making some outdoor storage bins as the ones in garden centres
are too flimsy. I've previously built a shed, so I made a bin out of
plywood and OSB, covered the lid with roofing felt, treated the wood
but I'd rather have made it out of waterproof no-maintenance material.
Can anyone suggest a waterproof sheet material, natural looking,
strong, hard wearing and can be cut and drilled? E.g. a modern
substitute for cement-bonded asbestos sheet, but even better?
I couldn't see anything obvious in B&Q. Thanks in advance...

I roofed and clad a little outside store with relatively thin plastic
coated steel roofing panels from eBay, fairly cheap.

Maybe £50 for a box about the size of a chest freezer. I think that's
what it would cost in plywood. It would just be storing various pond
and garden bits and pieces, it's not a feed or compost bin as such.
Thanks, I'll check those out. I also stumbled across the Stokbord as
someone else mentioned. I was hoping to avoid anything too plasticky,
but if it looks kinda tough and agricultural, and is saving some
plastic from landfill, I might go for that.

IME decking is a permanent maintenance and replacement exercise. My
paving had done over 40 years with only 4 pressure washes in that time.
The reports on composite decking are a bit patchy, the results seem to
vary with manufacturer and climate.
