Garden Tool Organizer – Cheap, Easy, Effective

Updated on February 12, 2010

A garden tool organizer is an effective way to keep your garden tools organized, clean, and most importantly together.  Especially now, when it’s that time of year again, you’re looking to break out the garden tools, seeds and getting to planting those early growers.  One thing that I overlooked for years was organization.  I knew that I wanted to grow certain vegetables, but it wasn’t until I got organized that I was able to obtain a bumper crop of my very own vegetables.  The next year is when I decided that since organizing my growing was so easy, that I would organize my garden tools. 

What’s nice about my garden tool organizer is that it keeps all of my tools together.  Sure it’s nice to have your trowels, and spades and even your rakes and shovels together, but I have some out there tools and before I had the organizer I was always using and leaving them somewhere.  For instance I have a hand scythe that I use for weeding (old fashioned I know, but it works so well!).  Well, everything was fine when I was weeding my garden because I would put it back in the pile with my other garden tools.  But when I would take it out to trim around my raspberry patches, I wouldn’t put it back and I’d be frustrated trying to figure out where it went.  In addition to the organizational and time saving aspect (emphasis on time-saving), the garden tool organizer I have is extremely durable.  It’s made from a dark green mesh fabric and has some pretty serious grommets which allows me to hand it easily on my wall.  The different size pockets are convenient for storing my various garden tools. 

Now there are several different varieties of garden tool organizers out there, so you’ll have to do a little bit of research to determine which kind you would want.  I like mine because I was able to order it online and came in a couple of days nicely packaged and being a wall hanging mesh pocket type of organizer it was really no trouble installing it; just a couple of hooks and I was done.  There are several other varieties online that are more like stands that the tools go into, which are great also, but I wanted something that was easy to set up and could store some of my smaller garden tools.  I’m not sure if these other garden tool organizers come pre-assembled, but with a little bit of investigation you should be able to tell.  I’ve found, that when looking for these types of things online, in order to get the best prices on garden tool organizers, you’ll need to do a little looking around first.  Most of the big name stores like Lowes and Amazon have some pretty good deals on garden tool organizers.  You may be able to find a lower price by shopping around at some of the other retailers; there are few smaller retailers like Storic, Meijer, and Closetmaid that specialize in storage equipment and may have a better selection or even better prices.  As with most things in life, a little bit of research will go a long way in getting the best prices on a garden tool organizer.

      It's time to work toward wrapping up for the fall season. Using a couple of these in the garage would be a good idea. Thanks!
