If your car broke down and you took it to a mechanic whose workshop is basically a mess of tools and parts everywhere, would you feel like said mechanic was a good one? Similarly, if a gardener doesn’t take care of his equipment and leaves it lying all over the place then they aren’t as dedicated to their gardening hobby as they claim to be and have no respect for their tools either. What we’re trying to say here is that no matter what it is you do, if you don’t take care of your tools after you’re done using them, everyone will think that you’re a tool.
Now gardening equipment can be expensive and even though it’s coated so that it doesn’t rust or anything, you’d still want to store it decently. Fortunately for you, you can find a number of yard tool organizers that you can use to mount your gardening equipment without having to take it to the shed and back each time. Let’s not forget that not all of us have a convenient gardening shed where we can store our equipment anyways so we’re basically out of options from the very get go.
Investing in a tool stand or tool organiser will make your life much easier and your experience as a gardener much more enjoyable. If you don’t like what you find in the market, you can even look up some DIY ideas on how you can organize your tools. Here’ an idea, for instance, why don’t you have up a used pallet after polishing it and then mount your spades and rakes on it? You can do this next to your garden even and it will still look nice and presentable.
