A survey commissioned by the National Association of Landscape Professionals last year found that 75% of Americans found it important to spend time in their yard. 90% of those surveyed with a yard also believed in the importance of keeping it well-maintained.
Lawn and yard care requires many kinds of tools and pieces of equipment to get the job done properly. You spend a significant amount of time every week grooming your lawn and the rest of your property. Why waste any of it looking for garden tools?
A sensible garage storage solution will help significantly in this area. It’ll also help keep your garage clutter-free, leaving ample space for parking your vehicles.
Consider the following organizing solutions when it comes to your garden tool garage storage.
You have more garage wall space than floor space – make the most of it
Most garages have more wall space than floor space, so make the most of it. A versatile slatwall panel system is the most effective garden tool hanging system you can buy for the garage. Some of the benefits include:
- maximizing your garage’s wall storage space by providing a wide range of storage options, in any configuration you choose with our slatwall accessories
- keeping your garden tools organized and easy to find
- more durable, versatile, and longer-lasting than pegboard and is easy to clean
- adding an improved finished look to your garage and can be color-coordinated to your garage’s decor
- heavy-duty hooks and brackets can support up to 70 lbs. of weight
Use garage cabinetry for your more valuable garden tools
Like slatwall panels, garage cabinetry also instantly improves the aesthetics of your garage. And garage cabinetry has more uses than for just storing your conventional carpentry tools and other hardware-related items.
Your more expensive electrical and gas yard equipment (such as leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, grass trimmers, and chainsaws) can be locked away safely. Garage cabinetry, along with hanging basket and bin accessories for slatwall, is also ideal for smaller items like gardening gloves, seed packages, and more.
Shelving and overhead storage increases your garage’s storage possibilities
Standalone shelving racks (or a few wall-mounted shelves) are ideal for keeping some of your garden supplies and tools.
Overhead storage racks let you make use of your garage’s underutilized ceiling space. These heavy-duty racks can hold items weighing up to 600 lbs. Store your snowblower in the overhead racks during the year’s warmer seasons and switch it out with your lawnmower during the winter months.
Eliminate garden hose messes with a quality hose reel
Keeping your garage and yard free from tangled up garden hoses is much easier with a quality hose reel. We carry mounted and portable garden hose reel storage solutions that will keep your hoses organized and much easier to use.
Our hose reels and garden hoses are also much better quality than most types sold in stores. This means they’ll both work reliably and you won’t have to replace them as frequently.
Proper garden tool garage storage improves safety
By making use of proper garden tool storage solutions, you’ll also be keeping your home safer. That old-time comedy visual of someone getting clanked on the head after stepping on the end of a rake is an all-too-real possibility if your garden tools are just left leaning against a wall or on the garage floor.
Hazardous yard care materials like insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizer are also better off locked away if you have children. Garage cabinets outfitted with locks allow you to do that and also keep these materials close to where you’ll be using them.
Keeping your garage safe, organized, and clutter-free becomes much easier with these efficient garden tool garage storage solutions.
