As the weather gets warmer, a spot of gardening doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Risking life and limb clambering past temperamental rakes, brooms and garden furniture to track down a trowel, on the other hand, does. There’s no doubt about it, a well-organised shed with some clever garden tool storage solutions can save you a lot of time, energy and hassle.

Overhauling your shed or potting shed doesn’t have to be an expensive undertaking. There are plenty of nifty DIY tool storage solutions to try that are just as effective as the real deal. Think metal funnels as string sorters, plastic containers as hidden hideaways and old palette crates as cute cubby shelving. We’ve also tracked down some affordable buys that’ll see you through the seasons.
