A garden hose is one of the most important tools that you should have. It is also very important to make sure that your hose can reach every area of your garden and a bonus would be a hose with an adjustable nozzle that will help you control the water pressure and spray radius. Be sure to estimate the amount of length you will need before purchasing your hose.
Vinyl hoses are lighter in weight and less expensive, however, they will also kink much easier and will not last as long as a rubber hose.
Remember to store your hose out of direct sunlight and that storing your hose with kinks in them could result in weak spots forming on your pipe.
