Hoses: Garden Hoses

garden hose


Save money on garden hoses by purchasing the best quality hose you can afford.  It is not thrift friendly to buy a cheap garden hose.  It will kink and develop leaks, and you will be constantly buying new ones.  However, if you buy a quality garden hose, it will last for years.

Here are some more tips to save money on garden hoses.


- Check the flexibility of a hose in the store before you buy it by unwinding it.
- Buy the correct size of hose for your space. 
- Many hoses come with warranties.  Fill them out, send them in, and don't lose them.
- Recycle old garden hoses by cutting little holes in them, and then laying the hose along garden beds for slow, even watering.  You can also turn the hose on low when you go on vacation to water your plants while you are gone.
