hose in the garden

Hi there!

This summer I was really puzzled whatt do with the hoses. They are scattered around the garden in all possible and impossible places. I'm new to gardening. We purchased our garden just a year ago.

I want to be prepared for the spring and dry seasons. How do you store your hose?

thanks

Hi, buy a hose reel and wind them onto it like you would fishing line onto a fishing reel.

thanks Dave,
I'm sure it is a good decision.
Do you use such reels? Is it convenient?

I found this type https://www.mrosupply.com/hydraulics...5-50_coxreels/

maybe i will get it somewhere cheaper. Frankly speaking, I hope to buy it during the Christmas sales.

Hi,

I had the same problem with storing hoses. Looked at reels, but a lot were too small as one hose is 30 metres long and the other is 40 metres.

In the end, I bought a couple of metal wall hangars from the local hardware store -
http://www.bunnings.com.au/garden-tr...anger_p3131408.

One is now attached to a brick wall next to a tap and the other is attached to a timber post which I secured into the ground.

Both work well and it is an easy and cheap solution.

cheers

I have the metal brackets too but now the hoses are drained and stored in the garage. Outside water taps closed and system drained until spring.
