Having the right tools will not only save you time and effort, but will also help your garden stay well maintained, healthy, vigorous and shiny. You certainly can't miss the opportunity to make your friends or neighborhood die of envy!
THE TOOL SHED
More than anything else, we need to organize ourselves as well as possible. Good organization management will ensure that maintenance is easier and more practical, saving you hours of work and stress. At the same time, the maintenance of your lawn, hedges and flower beds will certainly be pleasant.
The disorder creates confusion and discontent; increases the working time and above all the fatigue with the consequence that naturally the enthusiast will gradually withdraw, letting chaos take over his garden, and the more time goes on, the more the disorder will grow, the more difficult it will be to restore a satisfactory situation of initial decoration. Wise advice? Preserving your garden has meanings that go far beyond mere external order.
A useful, indeed indispensable, suggestion is to set up a place where you can store used objects, such as your work tools. It could be a tool shed, a garden shed or a small warehouse: they can house bulky tools, keeping them dry and in the air, preventing them from deteriorating. For example, it is possible to buy a wooden structure in the most common garden centers at prices ranging from a minimum of 700 euros to a maximum of 2000 euros, based on the volume, material and sizes. Many prefer to invest this money in another way, setting up a tool shed with riveted sheet metal structures for the walls and lightweight tiles for the roof. The important thing is to make sure that these places are well ventilated and dry, otherwise your tools could be affected by wearing out too much. In fact, a room with good air circulation will allow your tools to avoid rust, which is very harmful to the metal parts of hedge trimmers and lawn mowers, but also to those of spades, rakes etc. Furthermore, most of the garden tools have wooden parts which, even if well worked and resistant, it is good to protect from atmospheric phenomena to avoid rot and swelling. A good warehouse for your tools will also protect them from the weary action of weather phenomena such as rain, snow, hail and frost. ---
Either way, the choice is up to you; the important thing is to have a place where you can best and carefully store all the tools that will be useful to take care of your garden in the best possible way
Keep in mind that with a simple initial outlay of money, you will get rid of the future problem of spending more money on the eventual repair of your equipment or even on the new purchase of all your precious tools.
A garden shed in which to store your work tools can also house all the other useful items for the care and maintenance of your garden: specific products (fertilizers, seeds, bulbs, pesticides, soil, gloves, boots and aprons) and those less specific, but which in any case must be kept somewhere!
