Make quick work of washing the car, cleaning the driveway and watering the garden with a good hose. Choose a hose wit the right length for the size of your garden. Next you'll need to pick a convenient storage place and a hook or garden reel. A long garden hose wound on a portable reel usually needs a leader hose as well. This attaches to the reel and the water faucet. Traditional rubber hoses are durable but heavy. For lighter use, choose a rubber-blend or vinyl hose.
You'll appreciate a kink-resistant hose that's easy to wind back onto your support. You can choose a stainless steel hose, a coiled hose, an extendable hose and even a flat hose. Hoses to supply drinking water are also available. There are even heavy duty garden hoses for more extreme tasks.
