When it comes to lawn mower storage, we offer some ideas in this blog post for your reference.

The best place for lawn mower storage

Properly storing your lawn mower will keep it in good condition and last longer. You need to store your lawn mower in a suitable place.

There are three best places for your lawnmower storage, a garage, a carport, and a portable storage room.


The garage is ideal for lawn mower storage. The garage can provide good thermal insulation and a dry environment.

And store the mower in the garage, so you don't have to worry about rain, snow, wind, and other bad weather. But you wouldn't customize a garage for lawnmower storage, because that would be too extravagant and costly. Moreover, it does not seem cost-effective.

If your garage is not next to the garden, you can't use the mower right away when you need to mow the lawn, which can be a hassle for some gardeners.


If you feel that the garage is an inexpensive investment, consider the carport. The portable carport can be easily set up in the backyard. A well-enclosed carport is an ideal space for the storage of the lawnmower and protects the mower from external elements. You should set up the carport next to the garden for easy access and storage.

You can also use the carport to store your other gardening tools, such as shovels, buckets, water pipes, storage boxes, etc.

If your lawn mower is expensive and has the potential to be stolen, choose a locked carport or portable garage.

Portable storage 

If you have less space in your backyard, you may not want to build either a garage or a carport. A portable storage room is the best option for you. Choose the portable storage room that best suits your backyard size, and you can also store other items in the storage room. Try to place portable storage next to the garden for easy access and storage of tools.
