Fun and Creative Ways to Store Your Garden Tools


If you’re like me, your garden supplies are scattered around the yard and garage. You might have a pretty good system for organizing your tools, but if not, here’s some inspiration:

A big garden requires a big storage solution.

A big garden requires a big storage solution. The tools you use to maintain your garden are often bulky and heavy, so they need to be stored in a place where they can be well-maintained and easily accessed when you need them.

There are many options for storing your gardening tools: from the garage or basement, to an outdoor shed or toolbox. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the pros and cons of common storage options so that you find the best option for your needs.

Use a garden cart.

A garden cart is a good way to store garden tools.

Garden carts come in many different sizes and styles, so you can choose the one that fits your needs best.

The cart can be moved around the yard easily, allowing you to bring your tools to any area where they are needed.

Line up your hose in buckets.

If you have a lot of hoses, buckets are a great way to store them. You can easily move the buckets around and stack them up if needed. Also, buckets are very easy to label.

If you don’t have many hoses but still need a way to organize your garden tools, it’s best to use something like this storage rack or wall organizer instead of buckets because they will take less space in your shed or garage.

Convert a dresser into a storage unit.

If you already have a dresser in your home, consider using it for storing garden tools. The drawers will be perfect for small tools and accessories, which can be stored neatly and efficiently. If you don’t currently own a dresser, or if you’re looking for something new to use as a storage unit, try searching for deals on used furniture sites like Craigslist or Freecycle. You may even find someone giving away their old dresser!

Turn a pallet into a planter/storage unit

Pallets are the unsung heroes of the DIY world. They can be used for anything from building furniture to creating a garden storage unit. Here’s how to turn a pallet into an awesome garden storage unit:

  • First, find yourself a pallet! If you’re lucky enough to have one lying around, great! If not, head on over to your local hardware store and ask if they have any for sale. Just make sure it hasn’t been treated with chemicals or pesticides before using it in your garden (check out these tips on how to clean your pallet). You’ll also want to consider size when looking for one; pick one that fits with what you want to store (for example, if you’re going for plants rather than tools).
  • Next create a planter box by adding soil and seeds/plants as desired on top of the wooden slats. It’s important that this planter box is elevated off of ground level by about three inches so that water doesn’t seep through cracks between slats into soil below (you don’t want moldy roots!).

Here are some tips for creating a neat, orderly storage system:

  • Keep your tools organized. You don’t want to waste time looking for things when you’re ready to get dirty. Plus, if there’s an emergency and you need a tool immediately, it can be hard to find in an unorganized shed or garage! If you have too many items stored in one place, it may also seem overwhelming and complicated to find what you’re looking for. To avoid this problem, try organizing the tools by their category (for example: shovels go together) so that they’re easy to identify at a glance. This will help keep everything neat and tidy while still making sure everything is within arm’s reach when needed!
  • Store them in a place where they are easy to get at but not visible from outside your home. There are many steps involved in gardening which means there are many times when we’ll need our tools quickly without having time first thing in morning before work starts up again like most people do not have enough time during their lunch break either because they don’t want their boss thinking badly about them (which would make sense though since some jobs require long hours).


With these ideas, you’re sure to find a solution that fits your space and style. And remember, it doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, many of these ideas are things you can make yourself!
