Yard work can be difficult, but it is also rewarding. Whether your aim is to grow well-kept flowerbeds or the perfect lawn, it is going to require some hard work and the right garden tools.
With a large collection of yard work tools on hand that can range from large lawn mowers and wheelbarrows to portable garden shears, it can be easy to let these items get disorganized. Fortunately, there are several yard tool storage solutions that can help you get things back in order. This list includes ten of them: mounting a pallet shelf or storage bars, using a bucket for hose storage, putting up shelves, hanging a pegboard, repurposing an old mailbox, file cabinet, or rake, finding a new use for scrap wood, and building a storage locker.
Make a Pallet Shelf
Pallets can be the perfect material for building a variety of different shelves and garden tool storage solutions. They are made from durable wood, and with the pallet design, most of the work is already done for you.
All you need to do is find a good pallet, mount it on the wall of your garage, and you have a handy yard tool holder that can keep everything from your grass trimmer to your hedge clippers organized and out of the way.
With the storage bars that normally go in kitchens and bathrooms, you can have a convenient solution for hanging yard work tools on the wall. You can pick these bars up at your local hardware store, and they are easy to mount. With the bar mounted and a few S-hooks, you have a garden tool organizer that can be good for a number of different items.
If you don’t take care of a hose, it can easily get damaged. In addition to that, it is easy to trip on a hose when it is not properly stored.
Instead of buying one of those wall-mounted reels, you could just mount a metal bucket on the wall as a garden tool organizer and wrap it around that. If you have an old washtub you could wrap it around the inside of the tub and drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage.
You need to make the most of your walls when you are trying to find a yard tool organizer option. With some simple shelves, you can fill up the wall space in your shed or garage with an effective garden tool storage solution. You can buy materials that are designed to be cut and fit into different spaces, and you can add different shelves and spaces as you need them.
Pegboard might be simple, but it is one of the best solutions for yard tool storage. It can be cut to fit just about anywhere, so you can hang it on some empty wall space, the back of a door, or you could put it on the side of a work support stand.
You just hang the board, get some hooks and hanging hardware, and you have a yard tool organizer that can be used to store a variety of different tools.
A Old Mailbox
If you have an old mailbox, it can be repurposed for garden tool storage. You could set it up somewhere in your garage or shed, but it could even work as a convenient outdoor organizer for your yard work tools. You could mount it in a garden area to store all of your most frequently used garden tools, or if you have a raised flowerbed, you could hang it right on the side.
Repurpose Your Old Filing Cabinet
Filing cabinets are a thing of the past. These days, you should store all of your documents digitally.
This means you can put your old filing cabinets to use as a yard tool organizer. Just turn it on its side and it can be good for storing things like rakes, shovels, and brooms.
Make the Most of Scrap Wood
If you have some scrap wood, you can hang the pieces on the wall for more garden tool storage. You just hang the wood on the wall of your garage or shed, and add some hardware for hanging different yard work tools.
An Old Metal Rake
If you have a broken or old metal rake, you can take the head and use it for hanging tools. Just remove the head from the handle and mount it on the wall. Once it is up, the teeth can be the perfect solution for yard tool storage.
The Outdoor Storage Locker
You could buy an outdoor storage locker, but with a little bit of work, you could also build your own. A storage locker will keep your tools safe, secure and organized. Additionally, you can design it to hold a wide variety of garden tools. Just like in your shed or garage, you could add any number of racks, shelves and hardware to store all of your yard and garden tools.
