Garage organization starts with getting large tools out of the way. You can build a great rack rakes, shovels and other gardening tools and you only need a few pieces of wood and some nails. Just cut slots for the tools to stand in and you can get them off the floor and make them a bit more organized. Via: Familyhandyman – Garage Storage Project: Shovel Rack

Working in the garden is satisfying and relaxing, but keeping up with your gardening tools can be a hassle. Bigger tools can get in the way and make a big mess, while hand tools and other smaller garden essentials are easily scattered and lost. Luckily, you can make the most of common household items to create convenient storage for your gardening tools.

This magnetic tool bar reminds me of the magnetic knife holder used in kitchens; why not use one in the garage?! Instead of digging through a drawer, keep all of those tools (drill bits, screws, wrenches, nails, etc.) at an arm’s reach. No more digging through a drawer to find what you need!

This is the first year that we found a nice range of expert reviews and testing of steam mops — and there was a lot of overlap among the top choices, which was even better because it made it very easy for us to find the best-reviewed choices right off the bat. Those expert testing sites included TheSweethome.com, OurBestDigs.com and TopTenReviews.com, which not only offer well-detailed testing, but also rank and rate the mops against each other.

Then I started planning, arranging, looking at the space. I determined that it would help a lot to add an additional shelf for storing tarps so I started there. As you read this post understand that there is no light in the tool shed. I brought in a little clip lamp so I could see but photography was absolutely a challenge. I was doing this project from salvaged materials, reclaimed wood, etc. The tools shed is part of our woodshed, it has a dirt floor, no windows, spiders, mice and an occasional squirrel. This is not a place for fine woodworking!

No matter how you feel about it, you may be stuck with drywall in your garage depending on the design of your home and your local building codes. Drywall helps to increase the fire resistance of walls, which slows the spread of heat and flames to keep your family safe. Generally, garages attached to the home must have drywall installed on all walls adjacent to the home, as well as on the ceiling if there is any living space above the garage. Even separate garages located less than 3 feet away from the home must have drywall on all interior walls. Before skipping the drywall for an alternative product, check your local building codes to confirm whether drywall is required for fire resistance.

If you have little room to park your car, cleaning up and getting things organized will help immensely. You can hang a pegboard, which are really inexpensive by the way, and make more floor space. Just get a few hooks to hang tools and garden supplies. You can also hang baskets and small totes from hooks to keep smaller items put away. Via: MSN – Reclaim Your Parking Space

Look at the space you have available. Can you allocate a wall in your garage or shed for all your gardening tools and supplies, or are you limited to a small space outside? Do you have room for a large garbage can, a shelving system or a wall-mounted pegboard? Once you know what space you have, you can plan which system to use.

When it’s time to mow the lawn, trim the hedges, or plant a garden, don’t waste time searching for lawn equipment. Instead, design a well-organized storage spot in the garage to ensure your tools are easy to find and in good condition. Consider these savvy strategies based on your needs, budget, and available space.
