Gardening tools such as spades and forks can be awkward to store and often take up a lot of space in the tool shed or garage when rested against the wall. And, invariably, the tool you want is always at the back of the pile!
Buying special hooks and hangers for your spades and the like may seem like an extravagance but just think how much space you’ll free up and how less stressful your life will be when you can safely open the shed door without all your tools falling to the floor? OK, you can achieve much the same idea by banging a few nails into the wall but you won’t get such a neat and organised result.
Extra-Long Tool Rack – this black metal rack has 16 hooks and is a an easy and cost-effective way of organising all your gardening tools. W102 × D6 × H12 cm. £24.99 from amazon.co.uk
Alternatively, you could opt for some simple hooks or brackets like these from eBay. Sold in packs of 5 they work out at just over £1 each and are simple to fix. There are other designs available which are all equally economical and do the job just as well.
The Bruns system is a metal rail which fixes to the wall and employs a series of brackets which simply slide in and can be moved along to suit the size of the tools suspended. It’s ideal for storing awkward shaped items and costs £18.29 from amazon.co.uk. There are 5 brackets included but you can buy extra brackets and hooks as required.
So now you don’t have to fear what will fall out on the floor when you open the tool shed you’ll have to find another excuse not to do the gardening this weekend!
