Here's an inexpensive way to keep your outdoor items elevated (especially if they're heavy items) versus being directly on the floor.
Buy 8x8x8 inch gray concrete blocks. They're only $1.40 each and then you can use a wood piece on top.
For lighter items, you don't need 4 blocks, just 2 or 3 would be enough. The wood piece is actually from our older wooden raised garden bed that we took apart since we made a new and improved one recently. To get wood inexpensively, try looking at the clearance section where there may be a slight defect to the wood for an extra discount.
Our set up is a concrete square paver > concrete block > 2 wood pieces (giving this 14 inches above the ground).
We haven't seen any mice since.
