Picking out Garden Hoses

Careful selection of a garden hose is quite essential as a well-constructed garden hose can last for years. The key aspect in buying a garden hose is its durability as only this factor will get a serious gardener true value for money. A few careful considerations, gardeners can save time and money when selecting a new garden hose. Here are a few aspects that you should consider while selecting a new garden hose.

Garden Hose Construction- Most of the garden hoses are constructed of various types of materials such as, rubber, polyurethane, vinyl, or recycled rubber. Of these the vinyl hoses are the least expensive but they have the shortest life span. Rubber and reinforced rubber hoses are slightly on the higher side and also more flexible, hence they will most likely outlast a cheap vinyl hose. Another option is a hose with an added layer of outer cord nylon reinforcement. This kind is best to resist abrasion and wear.

Garden Hose Connections - When buying a garden hose, try to find one with an ergonomically designed connection that will make it easy to connect and disconnect even when wet.

Garden Hose Thickness - The more plies in a hose constitute a stronger hose.

Garden Hose Diameter – Is another important consideration as larger diameter hoses, have a greater capacity than smaller ones. Hoses diameters come in four sizes: ½", 5/8", ¾", and 1".

Length of the Hose- Measure how much hose you need prior to going to the lawn care center.
