An important step in organizing your garage is to store large tools—like rakes, shovels, and wheelbarrows—so they’re easy to find when you need them but out of the way the rest of the time. Start by attaching a long board to the wall at eye level.
Attach plastic coated hooks, screws, or nails to the board to hold the tools. Multiple hooks can be used to secure hard to hold items such as a string trimmer.
Another creative storage solution is to screw a notched board to the studs near the floor and use it to stow a wheelbarrow out of the way. Pivot the wheelbarrow up against the wall and secure the handles with a rubber strap.
