    Identify where this outdoor “basket” will be helpful. Is there an area in the backyard where the gardening tools get thrown in the corner or do you need a handy holder for swim items like goggles, flippers and pool toys?

If you hit the lawn and garden store you will most likely have several colors to accommodate your needs––they may even have some fancy patterns!
    • Consider matching the zip tie color to the hose color or purchase zip ties in a complementary, contrasting color.
