15 Extremely Clever Outdoor Toy Storage Ideas

By  | Last Updated:  

In our house, outdoor toys are always creeping their way out of the storage bin and across our yard—where they then set until I trip over them. While my son, Sam, might have a little to do with it, my organizational challenges lead me to believe we simply need a better DIY storage solution for his outdoor toys.

I’ve been researching some of the most organized backyards and found a number of ideas I really like. Some of my favorites include bins that hang off the fence, a parking garage for ride-on toys, really cool pool toy storage, pegboard storage for the garage wall and clever ideas to keep the sandbox organized.

Now I just need to decide what’s the best solution for our family!
