Best overall: Rubbermaid Deluxe Tool TowerStaff Pick
With space for around 40 tools, this deluxe tool tower is ideal for storing long-handled garden tools like rakes, brooms, and shovels. It has clips that secure items while leaving them easy to access, plus it allows for head-down storage of spades and brooms so that the rack doesn't get top-heavy. It also has casters for easy maneuverability.
Smaller option: Stalwart Compact Storage Rack
For those blessed with less space or fewer tools to store, a smaller tool rack may suffice. This option from Stalwart still holds up to 30 tools with numerous storage slots for tools of all varieties including brooms, hoes, and rakes without taking up your precious floor space.
On the wall: Sunnyglade Decorative Garden Border
Want to get your tools off the floor and up on the wall? This mountable rack lets you do just that. It features 5 ball slots and 6 hooks so you can stick up long-handled tools while hanging other lighter items.
Put tools in the corner: Rubbermaid Corner Tool Rack
In some garages, the corner may make the most sense when it comes to storing tools and that's exactly what Rubbermaid's corner storage rack allows for. Store up to 30 tools, including long-handle brooms, hoes, and rakes, as well as smaller tools, in that otherwise unused space.
Portable: WORKPRO Garden Tool Bag
If you've already got your large tools taken care of but just want a solution for smaller items, why not get a tool bag? Not only are they great for keeping smaller tools like trowels, transplanter, weeder, and shears organized, but it's also an easy way to tote tools back and forth from the garage in one go.
Carry a lot: Bucket Boss The Bucketeer Bucket Tool Organizer
Not specifically a garden tool organizer, but the Bucket Boss is perfect if you tote around a lot of tools. It attaches to any 5-gallon bucket and gives to a ton of pocket space for all manner of tools, plus the bucket itself, so you don't have to make multiple trips to the garage.
The amount of garden tool organization you need will depend on the number of tools you have, of course, but we listed the Rubbermaid Deluxe Tool Tower as the best overall option as it stores up to 40 tools — large and small — so will work for most people regardless of the size of the garden they are maintaining. There are easy-access clips for your most-used tools plus space to store heavier tools head-down so the whole thing doesn't tip over.
If you don't need to store as many tools or have less space to work with, the Stalwart Compact Storage Rack and Rubbermaid Corner Tool Rack can make the most of smaller spaces while still storing plenty of tools. Otherwise, the WORKPRO Garden Tool Bag is a great ide for keeping your hand tools tidy and toting them from the garage to the garden.
