Best garden tool organisers: wall racks and portable caddies
Perhaps you’ve built up quite a collection of gardening tools over the years. Make sure they’re in order with a brand new garden tool organiser.
What is a tool organiser?
Whether you’re a weekend hobbyist or a lifelong gardener, chances are you’ve accumulated rather a lot of garden tools over the years. There are so many useful ways that you can organise your garden tools but whatever form that takes, having an organiser is a definite way to keep everything in an orderly fashion.
Why you need a tool organiser for your garden shed or greenhouse
Once you master the organisation of your gardening tools, everything else falls into place. There isn’t a particular rule of thumb for how to organise your tools, it depends entirely on your setup.
So, whether you’re seeking a small storage solution for your garden shed or perhaps something lightweight that can be carried around easily, finding the right garden tool organiser will make landscaping your garden all the more enjoyable.
Here's a round-up of a few of our favourites.
Best tool organisers to buy for your garden
Double Garden Tool Rack
Best for storing lots of tools, this garden tool rack from Amazon is an excellent solution for anyone looking to save some space while creating additional storage. Ideal for hanging spades, hoes, rakes and pruning shears, this tool organiser works as a mountable hanging rack.
The efficient design allows you to make better use of your surroundings, particularly if you have a potting shed that is on the smaller side.
This tool organiser comes equipped with 11 hooks arranged across two levels and the hanging points are cleverly staggered to maximise the use of space.
Similar tool organisers available are the Bergman Extra-Long Tool Rack and the Bergman Double Tool Rack.
Garden Tool Holder
- Buy now from Etsy UK (£39.99)
This handmade option from Etsy is a stylish and visually pleasing tool holder. Made from wood, the design of this holder is minimalist with a light grainy texture.
The tool holder is also customisable with an option of two different finishes, stone grey or dark oak, and can also be engraved – making it a lovely gift for someone.
We also like the Wooden Moreton Tool Rail which similarly offers an excellent display solution.
Keter Corner Tool Storage Rack
If you’re limited for garden tool storage and hoping to optimise what space you have available, the Keter Corner Tool Storage Rack is a wonderfully versatile shed organiser. Its front-loading slots allow for easy storage of large tools and eliminate the problem of wrestling to find long-handle tools tucked away at the back of the shed; its corner design keeps everything accessible yet out of the way.
Sage Green Garden Tool Caddy
Perfect for storing small hand tools, this sturdy garden caddy has compartments that can comfortably hold anything from gardening gloves, trowels, secateurs and scissors. Better still, it will certainly save you the hassle of running back and forth to your shed or greenhouse to grab any forgotten tools.
