by D.D. Dolan 03/31/2019

Your garden shed can be an organized place, the same way your indoor is neatly arranged and functional. You can dedicate some time to organizing your garden shed and getting rid of clutters. There are many practical tips here that can help get your garden in order. Whether you want to... 

Get Rid of Things You Do Not Need

Expired items, broken items, empty containers, faulty tools, etc. are things that litter a garden shed and cause an eyesore. Get rid of these things and concentrate on the ones you need for work. Doing this will leave you with more space, clutter-free and also attractive. 

Get Rid of Things from the Ground

Unlike your home, you have so little space to use. Hence, instead of littering the shed floor with tools and gardening materials, you could get creative. With walls, you get other options to decorate your garden.

  • Hanging: You could hang pegs, hooks, broom clips, magnetic strips, etc.
  • With a broom clip, you can easily hang shovels, rakes and other gardening tools with long handles.
  • Storing smaller tools using magnetic strips is a great idea. Tools like hand trowels and gardening shears are perfect for attaching to a strip on the wall.
  • Shelving: With a shelf, you can make your garden more organized. You can use it with a pegboard and does not require extensive skill to set up

Reuse Old Furniture

An old dresser or wardrobe just sitting around in your store or garage can be transformed to be used in your shed. You can use it for storing seed, tools, fertilizers and other small items.Old tables are great to use as a workbench. If you have an old index card catalog, it is perfect for organizing your seed.

Plan for Seasonal Garden Work

While planning for seasonal garden work, you can also arrange your shed at the same time. With this, you work efficiently throughout the year. You could have a whiteboard or chalkboard in your shed. Be sure to add a calendar with seasonal dates and notes. With this, you get to monitor your gardening schedule. With a tackle box, you can organize seeds based on the months too conveniently. 

It is also good to store items that you hardly use away and have frequently used items easily accessible. Visit your local hardware store today to find simple tools you need to keep your garden shed in good condition to make your gardening easy and productive.
