Garden Shed

Let's face it. If you really love gardening, then you probably spend a great deal of time working out of your garden shed. And because you spend so much time in your garden shed moving and replacing the equipment you use every day, your garden shed can quickly become disorganized and disheveled.

After a while, the mess you can make in your garden shed will keep you from being as productive in your garden as you can be. But if you take a few minutes of your Saturday to organize your garden shed, you'll be surprised at the difference it will make.

The garden shed is one area of your home that can quickly become disorganized because it is home to all of the tools you need for your gardening hobby. Lawn mowers, garden tools, weed eaters, and water hoses can clutter your storage space and increase the time it takes to prepare yourself for the day's projects.

There are some simple things that you can do to unclutter your garden shed and give you peace of mind. These ideas are simple to complete and will make a real difference in your garden productivity. All you need is a few items from your home improvement center, as well as a couple of hours on a Saturday to get your garden shed in tip-top shape.

How to Organize Your Garden Shed:

  • Hanging Hooks. Hanging hooks are excellent garden shed organizers as they allow you to take cumbersome equipment, such as garden hoses and extension cords, off the ground and store them on walls out of your way.
  • Shelving Ideas. Installing shelves in your garden shed will also allow you to get equipment of the floor and place them in an organized place for easy location when you need them.
  • Equipment Containers. Cabinets and drawers will help you organize your garden shed by giving you concrete storage space for smaller equipment such as hose nozzles, plant food, and black plastic bags.
