There are many things to look for when choosing the right garden hose reel holders. You want to know that they are stable and will not fall to winds and weather. Some holders also grant security by protecting your hoses from the elements or from other things. The right hose reel also adds a nice amount of décor to your yard and can add to it substantially. When you use your hose often you may also want to look for ease of usage and storage.
Many holders have added aspects for convenience. Some have faucets on them for hose attachments, others have great décor. Sadly, it means little if they constantly fall down onto the ground. Some of the mid yard holders have deep spikes to keep them from falling down and links at the base to secure them to the ground – somewhat like the stake for a mailbox.
When you worry about your garden hose wandering away, a good holder can come to the rescue. Some holders are easily moved to secure locations or can hide the hose entirely. By adding décor to the holders, you can evoke the “out of sight out of mind” mindset. The décor is also a great way to hide home security while allowing it to work properly. Many holders are sufficiently open so detectors cannot be blocked. Lidded hose pots are also ideal for protecting an alarm speaker or a key lock for your house.
Many garden hose reels add special décor to your yard or porch. The colors can create focus by attracting visual attention. Some of the garden hose reels can create a post for controlled vine growths. Others, such as hose pots, are designed to match the décor of your porch while keeping the green hose out of sight. With many different designs, a hose reel can add interest to many different porch themes. It might take a bit of looking but there’s the perfect deck hose holder to add to your outdoor décor.
Ease of Access
Some decorative garden hose reels are designed for ease of use. An auto guide keeps your hose from getting cross-threaded. This makes it easier to draw across a space, as well. A hand crank gives you the ease to draw in a large amount of hose with light resistance and less weight. Others allow a bottom reel setup which will drain your hose, lightening it up as it’s put away, as well as keeping it prepped for cold weather.
