Essential Tools for the Shed
Are you like me? Do you want what you want when you want it? I think we all have the need for immediacy, especially when it comes to chores. Cleaning up in the garden is no exception.
As you know, a tool shed for the garden is a great way to keep everything you need for the yard or garden in one place. A proper shed also keeps your knick-knacks and soil amendments protected form the elements. There's nothing worse than a rusted shovel! So what exactly do you need to keep organized besides the lawn mower, rake and shovel? Smaller tools, like trimmers, loppers, hand shovels, weed claws and even fertilizers are easy to find and reach when placed on a nice set of shelves. For your larger tools, shovels, rakes, weedeaters, and the like, use a pegboard system. Create a system of peg board and hooks large enough to grow into. Lifetime Shed Accessories has a slew of choices! Take it a step further and after hanging all your tools, outline each one with a permanent marker so you can easily store after each use. This is great way to see if anything has been left out in the elements too! Clean each tool before you place it back in the shed.
