You can create this cute little garden tool organizer for the home just this spring. Add to your garage or porch for an amusing way to organization your tools and show them off as well. Don t just have to organize garden tools around the house? Consider other objects that will work well with it.
Using garden tool organizers is a great way to not only find the right tool when you are digging but also a quick way to store your shovels, rakes and hoes. The first thing you need to consider when setting up a rack is where it will go. Do you plan on putting the rack in your garage or do you want somewhere discreet and out of the way in your front yard. There are three basic types of yard racks.
The most flexible type of rack is a hanging rack, usually with two hooks and wide spacing between the hooks. This type of garden tool organizers allows you to choose the appropriate size of hooks and space between them. Since there is no specific width or length measurement, you can set up the rack in a very small area or very large. If you are set up to have a rack in your front yard, you will want a shorter version of this type rack.
The narrow spacing between the hooks of a hanging garden tool organizer keeps the tools spaced properly and organized. This type of rack is great for those who like a more organized look and want a specific space for their tools. You can purchase these racks with or without shelving, hanging rails or drawers. Some models include hooks from one side of the rack to the other, and you may even be able to move the tools around on the rails if needed.
Other types of organizers include those that are built into garden furniture. With these organizers, the tools are completely enclosed and are not visible to anyone except the people who need the tools. You might have seen some tables with tool racks built right into the table tops, but these are typically larger and do not work well for smaller tools. Tool racks that are built into furniture are similar to hinged organizers, except that they can slide out of the furniture to provide access to the tools. Some of these are wall-mounted, so that the tools are out of site when the table is not in use.
You might also have seen garden tool organizers that are designed to be attached to a post. These types are designed for small garden tools and can be mounted directly to a wall or to a free-standing post. Because these are wall mounted, you do not have to worry about reaching high above the ground to use them. You simply pull the post close to you and the garden tools are within easy reach.
Some organizers are designed to hold several different types of garden tools. If you have a circular array of tools, you might find it helpful to purchase a set of garden tool organizers that are designed to hold all of the tools you will need for gardening. This way, you will not have to carry a large number of tools around your garden, and it will take up less room. Instead of having to decide which tools you must have, you will know exactly which tools you have to get to work every time.
You can also buy several separate racks that can accommodate various sizes of gardening tools. You might have a round container rack for general purpose tools, a square rack for small power tools, and a long stainless steel rack for large digging and harvesting tools. These garden tool organizers are designed to hold many different size containers, and some will even hold a variety of garden tools such as shovels, spades, trowels, rakes, and more. Some are made of plastic or metal, and others are designed to hold lightweight wooden racks.
