Stop your garage, workshop or garden shed from becoming a dumping ground with our handy tidying guide:

•    Clear out any broken and redundant tools and items that you no longer use. If you have tools that can be recycled and repaired then it may be worth contacting a charity that can use them such as http://goo.gl/o2kiEI, which runs a project called Tool Shed.
•    Duplicates of any tools can be donated to charity as above or sold on eBay.
•    Anything that has gone off and can’t be used, such as paint that has gone hard, needs to be disposed of sensibly.
•    Add bracketed shelving for storage.
•    Use a selection of storage containers to help sort and keep small/multiple items such as plant labels, screws and nails together and tidy.
•    Use brackets to hang large equipment on walls and keep tools off the ground.
•    Label boxes of items on shelves to keep things in good order.
•    Baskets with luggage labels provide good storage places for clothing and accessories that you use in the garden like gloves, gardening aprons and kneeling pads.
