Gardening Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

Instant Garden Tool Rack

20160616A.jpgLooking for a storage idea for your long-handled garden tools? Simply lean a wooden delivery pallet against a wall and it’s done! You can simply slide the tool’s handle inside the pallet and it will remain standing.

For improved solidity, you can fix it to the wall. For hand tools, consider adding a few hooks or screws to the front of the pallet. And if bare wood doesn’t suit your decor, you can paint the palette any color you want to!
