Hozing Around

I have never used a hose guard, and I have certainly damaged plants as I have pulled the hose around the different beds. Hozearound sent me a sample of their product and I am looking forward to trying it out in the spring.  It is made of really sturdy steel and the stake that goes into the  ground is long. It can go 18 inches or a little more into the ground – assuming you don’t hit any rocks.  This means you don’t have to be super careful as you pull the hose through, especially since the black powder  finish is so smooth and shiny.  Expect to hear how it works in the spring. The cost is only $20 for three guides which seems very reasonable.

    Pat, I’m eager to hear how the Hozearound works. I’ve certainly had my issues with hoses!

    But once you have threaded the hose through, it must stay inside the guard, right? Doesn’t look like you can move the hose in and out of the guards easily, unless the spray nozzle fits through those round openings. Retracting the hose looks like it would involve carefully maneuvering the hose out of each guard. Let us know how it tests!

    Cindy – I’ll keep you posted.
    Laurrie – You are right that the hose would have be threaded through, in and out. I think a spray nozzxle would fit, but I’ll have to check.

    Oooh, this is such a cool product. I inadvertently ruined my irises because of our hose.
