We all know the trick of hiding a house key somewhere outside your home underneath a rock. But here's an interesting twist. How about storing your garden tools outside in a giant plastic rock? The Storage Rock Tool Organizer from Yardiac looks like real stone but is made from heavy duty plastic. It allows you to store your garden and pool equipment outside year-round.
