Smart Garden Storage

Get organized with smart storage solutions for gardening gear, whether you're designing a shed or setting up a planting station.
  • Order in the House

    Gardeners have a way of accumulating tools, pots, watering cans, soil amendments, plant supports, and other necessities. Well-organized storage space helps you keep gardening gear within easy rach year-round; it saves time when tending plants and searching for tools. Make your storage space is multipurpose and efficient as possible by including a potting bench, wall space for hanging long-handled tools, and shelves for storing bins full of accessories.

    Before you commit to bins, baskets, hooks, and other storage devices, inventory your stuff and assess needs. If a shed isn't realistic for you, determine where you can carve out space for a garden workstation. Consider how you will access water and electricity to make your spot as convenient as possible.
