Overhead racks can be a great place for extra storage. I have four 4’x8’ racks in my two car garage. Two of these fit above the garage doors. I have 9’ ceilings so there is close to 2’ of space above the doors.

Works great to put stuff in large plastic bins. It sort of functions as an attic might. Of course these are no use for things like lawn mowers or really anything you want to access often.

While I actually converted a 3rd garage bay into a dedicated shop, I put up a shed for all the yard stuff, mower, shovels rakes as well as additional storage for all the Christmas stuff. So if possible consider putting up a shed for that stuff. You’ll have more shop space and all that other stuff won’t get covered in sawdust.
