Convert Mailbox into an In-garden Tool Storage

Decrease wasted time and increase your gardening efficiency by keeping your tools and gloves handy whenever gardening. 

I always keep a pair of gloves, pruners and a weed knife by each entrance to my house.  That way I can grab the needed tools, gloves and do a bit of weeding whenever I have a few minutes or more to work.  These short bursts of intensive maintenance quickly make a big impact on your garden’s appearance.

For those with larger landscapes consider converting old newspaper or mailboxes into small-scale garden storage.  Place these discards right in the garden and fill with commonly used hand tools and a pair of gloves.  This small addition will eliminate many unplanned trips and wasted time trekking back to the garden shed for a forgotten trowel, weeder, or pruner. 

And dress them up with a little paint to make it both attractive and functional.

A bit more information:  Look for further ways to maximize your gardening efforts and increase your enjoyment.  Pull non-flowering annual weeds and tuck them under your shrubs out of sight.  They act as a mulch and eventually decompose, improving the soil.  And leave grass clippings on the lawn.  Short clippings break down quickly, adding organic matter, nutrients and moisture to the soil.
