Most efficient way to organize hardscape tools?

Hi Guys,
I have been mostly using five gallon buckets to store my tools. It works but I am trying to be more productive and efficient. Anyone have suggestions (pictures) of a better way?
Thanks,
Andrew

As far as hand tools go, I have found that getting tools set up for specific tasks in individual tool boxes helps. I have all my "hardscape' stuff in a Stanley Fat Max (28") that carries all my chisels, 2' levels, trowels, etc. I also have low volt lighting stuff in another box, irrigation repair in another, etc. To me it is easy to just think what I am going to be doing and grab each tool box. Of course I still have sockets and wrenches as a kit.

We use the largest tool bag we can find and each hardscape employee has one with the same hand tools, for bigger tools like the saws we use a job box.:

Each hardscape crew gets a job box that is left on site with just about everything they need in it.

I love flat shovels.

Latix the blades are in the garage. Its too cold to use them without a shirt

Check craigslist for a job box used. If itss teel and locks its good. Knaack and jobox are a few to look for.
