garden hose storage

If you read our post on Organizing Your Garden Shed, you know that it’s that time of year when it will pay off to get your garden accessories in order. Nothing gets tripped over, mowed over or driven over more than the garden hose. Isn’t it time to get it stored properly? Not to mention, a garden with the hose always left about is an eyesore… you want to appreciate the garden itself, not the tools you use to care for it. (Unless you have a gorgeous set of antique copper hand tools, but thats a whole other story…:)) DIY garden hose storage projects will help clean up the mess, and might save you from face planting in the tulips as well. Get to DIYin’!

Love Grows Wild created this DIY garden hose holder with a custom look from a wood post and some finials. Great tutorial!
