Shelves are available in metal and heavy-duty plastic material. You can use shelves to store items off the ground. Shelves can avoid clutter on the floor while keeping everything organized.
Install hooks to hang your garden tools such as a rake, shovel, saw, hedge shears, gardener forks, garden hose, and more.
