I donít know about you, but my garden hose is always all over the place. I used to have one of those gadgets that attached to the wall, but alas, I rarely used it. Iím not sure if this type of garden hose organizer is a better option or not, but it certainly is more attractive.
Hose organizers, aka hose bowls, come in a variety of colors, designs, and materials. Some are glazed ceramic, some are copper, both smooth and hammered or aluminum, and some are made from polyethylene plastic. There are simple designs and classic urn type designs like the one shown in the picture above. Some hose bowls even have lids.
The concept is simple. Thereís a hole for the hose to extend out of and connect to the water spigot. The rest of the garden hose (typically from 50 to 150 feet) stays coiled in the hose bowl ready for use. When youíre finished watering simply coil it back into the hose bowl. Many hose bowls have drainage holes as well that allow the hose bowl to double as a planter. The hose organizer is a nifty idea that might be worth a try.
