Garden Shed

A variety of tools are essential to a productive and efficient garden. Organizing them properly will allow you to easily find that shovel!

If you can, storing tools like shovels, hoes, rakes, and brooms suspended in the air is best. You can easily build a tool storage rack by drilling nails into either side of the wall of your shed. Place as many as you like row by row under each other to hang tools in an organized way. This will free up floor space and unsure your tools are never touching the ground, as this can lead to rusting or damaging the tools.

Kids Toys

Naturally, kids toys will become scattered during and after playtime. Try making these labeled metal bins to organize and give your kids an easy way to clean up after they are done. Purchase metal or plastic buckets and label them with paint or chalk. Line up buckets outside, in your back yard or in your garage. Place items in their desired buckets. Having them lined up on the ground or low down on a shelf will give your kid’s easy access to the toys and allow them to easily clean up after play time.

Now that you are equipped with a few new ideas it's time to try them out yourself. Time to take control and get organized. Show off your space! Let us know your favorite outdoor organization hacks by heading to our Instagram page and leaving a comment.
