Gardening Tool Reorganization

by Ouina
2 Materials
Imagine all the gardening tools lumped in the corner, propped up on each other with a mound of dirt - that's what this corner looked like. So thus the reorganization of the gardening tools. We decided to mount the 4" PVC pipe up off the floor so that we can periodically sweep. I also wanted a larger area to store the large handled implements. The PVC pipe was cut into 20" lengths and screwed to each other as well as to the 1x4 treated lumber. The back top 1x4 is longer that the bottom one on the wall because we wanted it mounted to the studs.
Trying out the order of the PVC pipe. This is not a big area but it held a lot of gardening tools propped against the outside corner!
Mounting the wood frame. Top back wall mount is longer than the bottom because we wanted it attached to more studs as it would be holding the weight more so than the bottom frame.
Bottom frame.
PVC pipe added - note that they are screwed into the frame.
Finished project. Sorry that the photo doesn't show more. I couldn't get the complete project photo to load - it would only load sideways!
Thanks to all who commented. I went out and added hooks and a basket - holds the small gardening tools plus my gloves and small pruner! Yea!!!

    Have you ever tried to hang like spade shovels and rakes horizontally? If you have the wall space id say give it a try its a pretty cool way to store alot and accessing is incredibly easy. What i did was i took two 5' long 2x8 and i marked out a center pointfor a 3" hole saw drill so there wasat least 3" of wood to the one side then spaced them out so there was about 6-8" between. From there i took skill saw and cut the edge out up at a slight angle to make a nice holding slot. Make both 2x8 identical and i spaced them about 3'apart on the wall. My first top most spot i use for the lighter hoes n such 2-3 fit in each slot then for bigger items like rakes just flip flop each side as you fill slots. Awesome. Sorry i dont have a pic at this moment so gotta read my babbling and try to figure out what the heck im talking about😁 i will get pic so if anybodys interested let me know

    I like this project! I would say this, I wouldn't want my gloves sitting in a basket. They should be inside something so that a spider couldn't find its way into a glove waiting for a hand to be put into the glove. After my son's friend was bitten by a brown recluse in their living room, & spiders like to hide, I would choose a tight mailbox to hold my Gloves. Otherwise, I think this is excellent!
