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.
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.
You guys are great. Love learning from you all.

Just bought my second home in my name at the young age of 75. Have watched Danny and his crew since the beginning and use ideas where applicable. I live in Lexington KY and wish the show would come here for The Bluegrass experience. I have a Huge Walnut tree in my backyard that needs help since our last strong weather storm split branches do not want disease. Any suggestions ?!
Hi, Elise! Congratulations on purchasing your second home and for watching Today’s Homeowner.
We’ve taken the show to Kentucky before and loved it, like in this episode: https://todayshomeowner.com/video/backyard-paradise-2018/
You’ll definitely want local advice for that walnut tree. We suggest contacting your local Master Gardeners association for the best recommendation.

So easy and simple. Had some brick laying around so stacked them up. and all done. Thanks a lot. Don
