Most people store their lawn and garden tools in the garage by simply standing them up and leaning them in the corner. There’s nothing particularly wrong with this except that it’s a little messy and makes it hard to get a tool out. You have to go through a bunch of tools, and sometimes, they fall over.

Here’s a super simple solution to that problem that only requires three concrete blocks. All you need to do is stack up the blocks wherever you want to store your tools.

Storing your garden tools can be as easy as stacking cement blocks on top of each other.

What you end up with is two deep compartments for storing long handled tools. The blocks are heavy enough that you don’t have to worry about them falling over, no matter how many tools you put in there.

If you don’t have enough headroom, you can use two blocks so you can lift the tools out. This will give you a neat place where your tools are out of the way and easily accessible, and you don’t have to worry about them falling over.
