Tips for Organizing Outdoors

Divide areas by types of use

Take your outdoor space and divide it up into different zones. These may include somewhere to eat, a play area, and a tool storage space.

Hide storage space in furniture

Use patio furniture as the hiding place for cushions, cutlery, and other items. Benches and sofas that open up or have drawers are ideal.

Create paths to each different zone

Build paths that take you from one zone to the next without trampling the grass or damaging plants. There are plenty of easy ideas for paths.

Get a shed for storing tools

Don’t leave gardening tools lying around where they can get lost or damaged. Buy or make a shed to keep them all nice and safe.

Use plants as natural dividers

Create natural dividers between zones using plants. This will help each area to stand out and make your outdoor space easier to maintain.

So, when I go out to garden and come in, I usually go off the front porch. I either have gardening tools scattered across the porch or I bring them inside the house. They rarely make it back to the garage. My goal was to create a project that would hide the bucket of sand and garden tools on my front porch. Hidden in plain sight... And so it began...
