A decorative garden hose holder provides a useful way to store, move, and deploy your garden hose without having to deal with unsightly lengths of tubing that can trip up unwary walkers or get chopped up in lawn mower blades. More than that, a holder that has an attractive exterior can add a decorative touch to your garden or patio. If you don't want to have a garden hose holder visible at all, you can select a holder that completely conceals the hose when it's in storage.
Attractive Hose Reels
Decorative hose reels can come with exterior themes that resemble the appearance of lawn furniture or garden walls or fences. They can be stationary or they can be mounted on wheels to allow them to move about in your yard or garden. When the hose is retracted into the holder, the reel blends nicely with your other patio or garden furnishings.
Garden Hoses to Go
Moving large garden hoses from one area to another, or laying them out to reach a selected location, can be quite a challenge, especially for new gardeners. When the holder is set up on wheels, it is easy to move from one place to another. When equipped with a hand crank or motorized crank, it is much easier to deploy the hose and to retrieve it for storage.
Sometimes a hose reel can be mounted on a wall or deck, keeping the hose off the ground and allowing it ample opportunity to fully drain for storage. This stationary mounting is a good choice for a hose that will connect to a sprinkler system or to a soaker hose set-up. A hidden receptacle is also nice, especially if you often host social gatherings in your garden or patio space and would like for it to look as if your garden never needs something so ordinary as watering. A decorative hose holder is an ideal way to deal with having your garden hose on hand, while not allowing it to mar the general appearance of your garden. In fact, the right holder can make your outdoor space even more attractive. There is also a convenience factor in having a hose reel that will make storing and using your garden hose so much easier than trying to coil it up by hand. Here are a few examples of holders that can make your garden more beautiful and your watering chores easier.
