Mailbox Tool Niche
How often have you walked to the far corner of your garden -- only to realize you've left gloves and pruners at the house? Why not make it easy on yourself. Find a fine, cute, new or used mailbox to put in a convenient spot somewhere in your garden -- to hold basic tools. Keep spare gloves, pruners, cultivator, trowel, insect repellent, whatever you might need close at hand ... and dry. Second trick -- remember to return supplies to the mailbox after using them.
