Cupboards & Chests
Putting your tools away properly when not in use will ensure that your tools remain protected from rust and wear and will last longer. Weatherproof, outdoor cupboards and chests make storage> of your tools easy - and also means they are easy to find when you need them again. Before putting your tools away remember to remove any dirt. For sharp tools - such as loppers, shears, secateurs etc - make sure that their blades are sharp before storing away - so they are ready to use straight away when you want to use them again. As well as your garden tools, you also need to be able to store away any watering equipment, including hosepipes, so they aren't affected by winter weather conditions.
