Cleaning and Storing Garden Tools – Garden tools like any other tool should be cleaned after every use. Cleaning and properly storing your tools will add years of life to your investment and when you need them they will be ready for use.
The first step and most important when cleaning and storing garden tools is to wear eye protection, gloves and proper clothing. Read and follow the manufactures directions on the proper use and storage of the tools that you own and use.
If you are building a porch onto your home or are remodeling one you currently have, you are being given a great opportunity! This is your chance to really decide what the outside of your home says about the people who live in it. Of course, before you can start decorating or building, you need to get some good ideas.
Ideas can come from anywhere. A simple internet search for porches will turn up more inspiration than you will know what to do with. Other great places to get ideas are the home construction and design sections of your local bookstores and libraries. Magazines can also provide a wealth of material. You might also just go for a drive and see what other people are doing with their porches.
Garden sheds come in all shapes and sizes and vary in price, but there is one thing they can have in common and that is clutter. The garden shed tends to be home for all the gardening tools and everything else that can not find a home in the house. So if you find yourself taking half-an-hour to locate something you need, it is probably time to take ‘the bull-by-the-horns’ and organise your garden shed.
Organising a garden shed can seem like an overwhelming job, but if it’s broken down into smaller tasks it can be achieved without you feeling discouraged. The first step is to make a plan, such as: the completion date, what’s going to stay in your garden shed, what needs to be thrown, and what type of storage equipment you need. Last but least plan the treat you’re going to give yourself after each task is completed!
