I got all the hooks from Home Depot for like $70 - $80 and I got the blower rack from Northern Tool for $46 (not a bargain) and I had to bore 2 holes through the 1" tubing so that I could mount it to the wall. The tie-down straps for the mowers were $30 each. I already had the shelf brackets and standards from my old shop. Some screws, plywood (always have plenty of that in the shop), paint, 6 magnets (had those), and 3 little pieces of cork shelf liner (had that) and I was done.

Thanks. I'm glad you are inspired.

I originally wanted to use A. W. Landscaping but awlandscaping.com was taken. I was actually glad the website was taken because I ended up really liking the way A. W. Landscapers sounded and www.awlandscapers.com was available.

Hopefully I'll be hiring next year…we'll see how it goes. If I close on a few more new residential construction installs between now and February 1st, I'll definitely be hiring a couple of guys. If I get the new commercial construction install I bid yesterday, I'll probably crap my pants, thank God, hire several guys, and pray a lot…I'm pretty sure I won't be the low bidder and the project won't be until the 2nd quarter of next year so I'm not wasting a whole lot of time right now on planning an expansion solely for this project.

The magnets keep the trimmers and edger from bouncing around…see the fifth picture in post #1 of this thread.

The use for the magnets is very creative. Scott are you related to Thomas Edison. I can't figure how to "quote message in reply". I click the box under "quick reply" and nothing happens.

There is a rare earth magnet taped to the trimmer/edger and there is a magnet embedded in the edge of the shelf and the cutout where the tool rests is lined with self-adhesive cork shelf paper.

Yeah, I definitely meant to tell you previously that those magnets are GENIUS.... I know you are a fairly new poster (as am I) but have you come across any photos of peoples hand held shafts breaking? My gosh, there are a ton of threads and posts that I have seen.... I always want to ask "So, you didn't see that string trimmer, or edger bouncing up and down and all over the place before?"
