Hiding possessions underground can be tricky. House keys under a rock? Too obvious. A large container with some soil thrown over it? Nowhere near discreet enough.
If you bury your items deeply, it can be impossible to find them again when you need to.
The key to the perfect underground storage method is, like the key to many things, superglue and spray paint.
- a small container
- spray paint (brown or green)
- a rock, twig, acorn, or another generic garden object.
Choose a receptacle for your secrets (something small with a removable lid works best). Put your items inside, apply some appropriately colored spray paint and superglue a garden object to the top of the lid.
SPYSCAPE recommends a twig. Nobody suspects twigs. Memorize the shape of the twig or take a picture of it. Finally, gently bury your container until the twig is all that can be seen.
