Tips For Organising Your Gardening Tools

With the weather (finally) improving, many people will be heading out into the backyard for the first time in a long time and taking steps to get the garden ready for summer. If your toolshed has been neglected over the winter months, you might want to start by getting this area organised which will make it much easier to crack on with garden prep. So, what are some of the best ways to organise your gardening tools?

Tool Rack

Many people’s sheds are chaotic because they have large tools like shovels, rakes and spades getting in the way. Instead of having these items strewn across the shed, you should install a tool rack on an interior wall. You can then neatly hang all of your tools and give each one its own dedicated space. This will make them easy to access and create a lot more space in your shed.

Storage Boxes

Going into the shed can feel stressful and overwhelming when you have so many items all over the place. Storage boxes are a great solution as you can use these to keep items together and create more space. Large, specially-designed boxes like the Milwaukee Packout box are ideal as you can store medium-sized tools and other items and they can be wheeled around for convenience and should fit snugly out of the way under your workbench.


A pegboard is a great use of vertical space that will help you to keep tools neat, organised and easy to reach. These are easy enough to put up above your workbench or on any interior wall and is ideal for smaller tools, such as screwdrivers and drills. In addition to making your space a lot neater and creating more space, a pegboard can also add some visual interest to your space.

Jam Jars

Finally, you will find jam jars are ideal for those small items that are easy to lose. Nails, screws, washers, nuts and bolts can be stored in jam jars so that they are always easy to find. Just be sure to have jars for different items and keep them clearly labelled so that things do not get mixed up.

These are a few of the best ways to keep your garden tools and items neat and organised. Now is the perfect time to get to work in the backyard to get it prepared for winter, so a smart place to start is getting your tools organised so that you can find everything you need.
