Best Garden Buckets To Carry All Your Garden Tools

Updated on February 17, 2019

Home and garden are my favorite havens and my goal is to help people learn the little things that I've learned.

Garden buckets are best for holding clippings while doing some trimmings in your garden. They are also convenient as containment for weeds, compost, sand, soil, fertilizers, tools, or plants. If you are an avid gardener, garden buckets can serve a whole lot of purposes.

I carry a bucket with me whenever I go to my garden and trim leaves, harvest flowers and vegetables so I don’t get bothered where I put the trimmings and plant leftovers after. I also use it to carry my garden tools, my favorite garden gloves, and loppers or whatever garden tools I need for my gardening tasks. I supposed it’s so much convenient if you can carry a garden bucket everywhere you go in your garden because these can really carry a lot.

Here’s a bucket of tips in choosing the right bucket for your garden:

  • If you want plastic buckets, try to look for those that are brightly colored. In my gardening experience, bright colored buckets are more durable and pliable than the pale-colored plastic buckets. Some plain-looking buckets I have before can become brittle in a short span of time.
  • Consider taking a large bucket if you have so many tools to bring around when gardening. This can also save you a large of space on your garage.
  • You must have two buckets for your garden. One for holding your vegetables, flowers, and seedlings and the other one for your fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. Using only one bucket for all-around use may cause contamination on your harvests.
  • If you need multipurpose garden buckets, the foldable buckets are some of the hottest items in the gardening world today. You can store them easily without taking too much space on your garden shed and these can be very versatile with their uses.

I got some of my favorite buckets here which I am going to show you. You could give them as gardening gifts to your friends who love to spend hours in their gardens. I picked them up because these are really versatile and affordable.

If you have a narrow space in your garage, the Presto collapsible bucket won't give you an issue in storing it because when folded it is only 2 inches tall. This will work well for those who have a modest amount of gardening tools. It can hold up 2.9 gallons of water. Despite its collapsible structure, it is watertight, very durable and you can use it to hold up any liquid. I keep one with me for light gardening maintenance tasks. It’s brightly colored too so it’s easy to find even when collapsed.
