While flipping through the pages of Real Simple magazine, I noticed an ingenious solution for wrangling unruly garden hoses, thereby eliminating a major source of outdoor clutter.
Instead of a hose reel or cart, consider a hose pot, which discreetly hides a coiled garden hose in a decorative container. Not only is the garden hose out-of-sight and easy to access, the hose pot also adds an aesthetic flair to a patio, deck or outdoor space. Hose pots are available at most hardware stores and gardening centers, and are typically priced from $40.
