Gardening can be a fun and rewarding hobby, but it is no secret that you will require a number of tools to make the most out of your experience. One of the issues that many homeowners will encounter is how to properly store this equipment within their garage. Indeed, it can be a bit challenging to know how to make the most out of what will often prove to be a limited amount of space while protecting the tools from damage. What are some of the most effective ways to accomplish this task?

Off of the Ground

First of all, it is highly likely that the majority of your tools are made from metal. So, you need to be concerned about rust. Moisture tends to hang low to the ground. When possible, hang your tools from a wall or even place them (safely) above the rafters. This will help to limit the exposure to water and humidity. In turn, you will vastly increase their lifespan.

Prioritise Your Access

Many of the most trusted organisational guides will recommend that you prioritise the ways in which your tools are stored. In other words, provide easy access to those that are used regularly. Any tools that are only needed once or twice a year can be placed out of common access. This equates to less clutter while the equipment that you need will only be a short distance away.

Storage Bins

Another great idea is to consider using plastic storage bins for the bulk of your equipment. This concept will offer a few key benefits. First, the garage itself can appear much cleaner than it would otherwise be. Secondly, the tools will be protected from the elements (as mentioned previously). Some high-end storage units may even be hermetically sealed from the outside environment.

Pegboards

These are a common feature within many garages, and for good reason. Pegboards are excellent do-it-yourself items that enable you to store a multitude of tools quickly and easily. They are lightweight, easy to assemble and cost very little. In turn, you will be able to enjoy years of constant use while the floor space can remain free from clutter and hazards.

Consider the space that you have to work with when choosing the most appropriate methods. In fact, you might find that two or more suggestions can be used in combination to achieve the best results. Organising your garage may not be as fun as gardening, but a clean work area is an efficient work area!
