Lawn Mower Garage Introduction

My neighbor wanted to get a new mower or trimmer and start mowing her own lawn. The kids in the neighborhood must have gone to Harvard Business school. Since they all want at least $20 per mow with a one year contract.

Needless to say we live on small lots with small yards and small garages too. So we needed to figure out where to store her new lawn equipment. The only logical place would be outside, but we get lots of rain and most things around here rust in a few year. That gave me an ideal to make a small lawn mower garage.

This will house a small push mower and bag, trimmer and attachments and a gas can. The idea was to make it small enough to only house the lawn equipment (that will keep other things out).

The size that I built is 6ft 6in by 3 ft. This is enough room for the all the lawn care items that I needed to store. And it saves the space in the  garage.

  1. Kudos. Just wanted to say this lawn mower garage design is awesome. Much better than anything on the retail market.

    1. Thanks, I’m glad you like it. If you build one send me a picture to post. Ours is now three years old and still going strong. I moved it a couple of time and I did add some shingles on the roof for added protection.

    1. Glad you liked it. Mine has worked out very well.

      Sure you can put it on a slope, you would need to modify the base to accommodate the slope. If you have a choice I would want the door on the downhill side this way the mower comes out easier. You may also need to add a 2×2 for a parking block to keep the mower from rolling out on its own. Unless it would mow on it’s own (If you get that figured out I want to know all about it 😉
