How and where to store instruments: savvy gardeners share secrets

With the onset of heat gardenerstake out of the barns and pantries tools and various household equipment. In the midst of spring work all that is necessary to cottagers, should be under his hands. Always there is a need in spades, rakes, shovels, forks and secateurs. On the one hand, the need to be as close as possible to the place of work. On the other, how can you not want to infringe neat area scattered around the items! Only one way out: it is necessary to identify and equip the place for summer storage of tools. And in the winter they also have to put somewhere, to meet the new holiday season fully prepared.


For spring, summer and autumn

The aesthetics of open space will not be broken if we use one of the suggested ideas easy storage of tools. All that you need is right at your fingertips, but not on the eyes.

The space under the terrace or porch

If the design stage you are at homeThere's even a slightly elevated porch or terrace, it considers that the place for shovels and rake you have already identified. It is sufficient that the construction was on the ground at least a foot. The greater the distance from the ground and the length of the same terrace, the greater your chances.

The organization of space under the terrace

Free space under the terrace is well organized. Even stair staircase converted into drawers that can store a wide variety of trivia

You can simply close the space, providing itaesthetic door. Get the original barn, which, incidentally, will further strengthen the terrace. If under the porch are not too many places, it is better to confine drawers, turning the side of the porch into a kind of dresser. Design thus should be chosen to your liking, it is only important that it matches the overall style of the buildings.

Shed under the terrace

Another option to create a utility room under the terrace of the house. It can accommodate not only garden tools, and a bike, for example, or small boat

Garden bench also nice

Generally, the space below the garden benchanyone not particularly interested. But we'll fix that and not give him empty. Suppose that instead of the usual shops, we will box in which we put the tools.

The overall aesthetics of the site does notIt suffers, but the space under the bench where so hard to mow the grass, will be put into the case. Pruners, shovels and hoses can be stored right next to the place of their application.


This bench does not look a repository for tools, but it is used that way. Outwardly similar to a trendy sofa, it is versatile

To construct a special box

And now proceed differently. First, we calculate the box with what parameters we need to go all the equipment could fit, and then think about it without difficulty what other functions it could perform on our site.

The box

Such wooden boxes will be found even some useful application in the economy. For example, it can be grown seedlings, or use it in the gazebo as a dining table

Suppose we make the container with pull-out shelvesor with a hinged lid, or even a combined structure in which the boxes are placed down and the space for shovels, rakes and choppers - top. A rather positive displacement design, which can be used as a table for the cultivation of seedlings, lager or a place for children to play.

The original design in the form of an obelisk

Decorative detail of the exterior of your homeat the same time can be very useful construction. No one would think of that broom and shovel are here, so gently and naturally looks this design.


Who would have thought that in such a neat and inconspicuous host cache hides spades, shovels and rods? Yes, at the bottom of the obelisk still and hidden air-conditioning

The lower part of the tank can hold, for example,air conditioning, and the top will be placed tools with long shanks. Here it is possible to lay and fishing equipment, which are also in need of storage space.

For relevant details

However, not all devices have a gardenbig sizes. Sometimes we need the little things such as pruning shears, coils of twine, gloves, shovels and pegs. To all this add up to for a long time not to look? They should build a house, birdhouse on a rack corresponding to the growth of the gardener.

nesting box

This is a real illustration of the expression "everything is at hand." Supplies intended for the information that must not be forgotten gardener. For example, there may be mentioned vaccination date

It can be independent or storageoriginal addition to a large utility room. In any case, in such a "house" every little thing will lie in its place. And the information you need simply write chalk on a blackboard inside the door.

We use the suspension structures

For climbing flowering plants, cucumbers andgrape often used different supports. Their vertical surfaces easy to make any type of fastening hooks. You can use them all unnecessary at this moment stock will be suspended. In fact, it is at the same time to see, but it or not noticeable, or it will look carefully enough.

Suspended construction

Take a good look at the poles because they put tools in fact almost not visible

If the climate in your area is dry, this waytemporary storage of very useful. If it rains frequently there, you can fill the hooks on the wall of any outbuildings, which is secured overhanging roof. However, it is possible the entire outer surface of the walls transform into a kind of organizer. On its construction we describe below.

Aesthetic cylindrical rack

If in the course of construction works have remainedCutting metal or polypropylene pipes, do not hurry to part with them. Secure them in a quiet corner somewhere behind the house or gazebo, you can store them all the tools with handles. Each item has its own place, which facilitates subsequent access to it.

The cylindrical rack

The only thing that is alarming in this waystorage equipment, - a fork, sharp teeth which are directed upwards. One can only hope that this design will be located in compliance with safety

Doing their own hands shelf

Ways to make a simple shelf for instrumentswith his hands a lot. One of them we offer. For the base shelf we need a board longer than 1 meter and 40 mm thick. In addition, we prepare the remains of boards, planks, and the same trim triangular shaped plywood.

Take the plywood triangles and on each of themScrollsaw jigsaw groove corresponding to the board, which we have prepared for the base shelf. Self-tapping screws fasten to triangles trim strips, their edges Cut down. Now each triangle - console.

Shelf for tools

This shelf is easy to do: to create it does not make sense to buy new materials, you can use the ones that are left over from the previous construction work

With the help of self-tapping screws to fasten each consolethe base board so that the shovels, rakes and other tools would be suspended from working part up. In the console insert trim boards or chipboard. This will give the overall design necessary rigidity.

I must say that the finished structure is obtainedpretty heavy. To secure such a bookshelf against the wall, you need an assistant who will support her. If the wizard works alone, then it is easier to initially secure the base plate, and already then screwed to it and the console elements to ensure rigidity.

Shelf ready

The only difficulty - is the weight of the shelves, which will be a problem if it fastened to the wall will have the same, but in this case there is an exit

Another option involves consolidation of the finisheddesign with a single large nail, and then final assembly screws. In their locations can be done in advance through holes. The resulting guileless Regiment gathers the whole basic equipment.

Garden Organizer - is simply

For a simple garden organizer, we do not need extra effort and significant financial costs. It's pretty simple!

We need four-edged boards 25mmthick. They must be prepared to work - pare. The figure shows where the two boards will be placed holes. We outline them. With feather drill to make a hole on preliminary estimates and, then, a simple jigsaw or hacksaw cut out lateral cuts.


Nothing complicated here in the assembly of the organizer no. Message nemudreny process in detail is reflected in these figures

Connect the board pairs with screws toWe got two L-shaped design. Now we have two uprights. Select the wall, which will be located our organizer. Let it be, for example, the outer wall of any outbuildings. Stands should be bolted to it parallel to each other at a smaller distance than the length of the cutting shovel.

Organizer in

Why not boast of such a worthy result of the work? It's always nice when the tools contained in the order. With a clean inventory and work is fun

Work is over. It remains only to put all the tools in the organizer and happy that he will always be right.

When the holiday season is over

When the going gets cold, and work in the countryfold comes time to preserve the tools that served us faithfully, and send it to storage. If you comply with all the rules, in the spring, we will not have to spend money to buy a new one. Spring expenses and so great.

Shipment gardening tools for storage

All shovels, hoes, rakes and other toolsgardener must be preserved. We carry out their initial inspection and repair everything that has managed to break during the working season. Dirt and rust must be removed. Cleansing is better to produce with a wire brush or spatula. Lubricate the cutting edge and the metal surface oil.


It is impossible for the winter leaving dirty instruments and non-lubricated. All the same, the very same spring will have to do the same job. And in the spring, as you know, to do without a lot of

We need to sharpen the blade shears and pruners. To remove the burr on the blade or the shears garden saws, using file. Secateurs for the same purpose as the best fit grindstone. Take care you need and wooden handles. They are also thoroughly cleaned, and then liberally smeared with the usual sunflower or linseed oil. Thus impregnated, handle will not crack and will last for a long time.

Particular attention should be paid to the spray gunfertilizers. This was purified carefully washed and dried. All levers and fastening instrument thoroughly coat with machine oil. Hoses free from residual water, roll into a ring and hang on the wall. Need only store them in the room.

Terms of storage elektroinventarya

Well-equipped suburban area can do without the electromechanical equipment. In its preparation for the winter requires the following steps:

  • drain all excess fuel;
  • replacement of engine oil;
  • check the availability of fasteners (brackets, plugs, screws) and the replenishment of the actual shortage.

Require mandatory testing, and power cords. If the integrity is broken, it is better to be exchanged for new ones. Trimmer head clean, wash and dry. Knives sharpened on mowers and lubricated. In need of cleaning and electric shears, grass and straw chopper. All knives, metal parts and movable joints of different units are subject to cleaning and lubrication.


Any electromechanical devices require careful maintenance. But the life of gardeners greatly facilitated if they have one and are in good condition

Tool in any case should not be left there,where it can rain or wet snow falling asleep. Even the moisture from the fog has a negative impact on its operating properties. The ideal storage place is a special storage room. If this premise is not, suitable workshop or storage room in the house. Carefully preserved gardening tools to successfully survive the period of lack of demand, and will not let their owners in spring.
