garden hoses, choosing the right garden hose for the home

Not all garden hoses and sprinklers are created equal. There are a number of steps you need to take, when it comes to installing a quality garden hose in your home garden. It can be quite annoying when you buy a so called 'kink-free' garden hose when it is constantly kinking, or worse - one that is always flattening out the hose reel. On this, how do you choose the right garden hose for your home?

I don't want one that kinks. Definitely a quality hose The metal needs to be safe and kid friendly as well. It pays to ask for advice as (again) not all hoses are created equal.
If you have the money it is out there.

The non-kinking hose!

It's all about money, when it comes down to items like this.Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Google is great, you get a lot of info.

Every time I get a 'kink'', it makes my blood boil.

Hence you can tell we can't afford the right kind of hose....and I spend a lot of time in the garden.

Life is cruel at times :(
I agree with Jonaj. It is about the money. However, the cheaper ones don't always last the longest. They tend to crack and break. They also bend in places and it is hard to straighten that out. I would probably find something that is not made entirely out of plastic (with a hint of rubber) and probably in a price point somewhere in the middle!
