Title: Underground rake storage device

Abstract: A storage device (10) includes an underground chamber (12) and a lid (31) hinged to the chamber (12). The lid (31) has a tab (36) and can be easily opened by a user. Flanges (23, 25, 27, 29) near the top of the chamber (12) prevent the storage device (10) from setting too deep in the ground (60) and prevent water from flowing into the chamber (12). A pipe (14) attached to the base (15) of the chamber (12) surrounding an opening (16) therein receives the handle (54) of an implement (50) when the head (52) of the implement (50) is stored in the chamber (12) and provides drainage to the chamber (12). A block (18) on the base (15) of the chamber (12) lifts the head (52) of the implement (50) off the base (15), thereby protecting the implement (50) from possible water and litter in the chamber (12).
