Using Buckets as Garden Storage Containers

Garden Organizer Bucket IdeaI have an idea but not the components to make one. So, indulge if you will, my art work.Four gallon square buckets fit inside five gallon round buckets. By putting the square one inside the round one, you have a center place for your potting soil and small spaces for the gardening implements and garden stakes. I am enclosing a picture. The four gallon diameter is 9 15/16 inches and the diameter of the five gallon is 11 inches approximately.


You may have to play around with the different sizes, but if you have two at home that you can try out, why not? This would also work with boots in the center and umbrellas around the edges, tall and short dried flowers, or anything you want to keep handy and don't want to dig around for. Hope this helps!

PS: If this isn't practical, please be kind.

This is a great idea. Where do I get a 4 gallon bucket?

I found these very unique buckets/pails. They are flat on one side and would work very well against a flat surface. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors in the garden, storage for small items can come in handy.


I didn't really care for the colors, so I freshened them up with spray paint.

All sorts of plastic containers, tubs, and bottles have a place in your gardening activities. Use recycled bottles to add lightweight bulk to planters. Tubs and containers are useful for starting seedlings and as planters in their own right. Learn more about using plastic containers in the garden on this page.
