This time we’re heading outside for an item I got a few weeks ago but just
recently assembled. There are many little details that I wish we had thought
of while finishing this house (that started as a spec house). One of those
little things that has always bugged me is how low and shallow our outdoor
I wish I would have had them installed higher for easier reach. They are SO
low and so close to the stone, it’s difficult to get a hose attached. And as
we get older, we avoid struggling with anything that requires crouching.

They’ve held up GREAT (I’ll show you in a minute), and I love the look of
them, but we wanted something taller. Also, the clippings from the yard
are always all over the place and stick like glue.
I did some looking around online to see if there was a solution that would
raise everything (including the spigot) up off the ground. I found the
When the package arrived and I opened it up, it looked like a lot of pieces.
I put it to the side for a few weeks till I had some extra time to sit down
with it. And then when I did, it took about two minutes to assemble. That’s
always the way…what I think will be easy takes 45 minutes and what
I think will be difficult takes a couple.
It’s really just three parts that snap together. It was also super easy to
get staked into the ground. (Dampen the soil if yours won’t go in.)
a very long expandable hose
that I love and I wasn’t so sure it would fit on the holder without pulling
it over when filled up. It didn’t even budge!:
I love that you can place the holder wherever you want and turn on the water
from where you’re at. I’ll be moving the location of the holder to another
spot when I get a longer lead hose. That way I won’t have to walk across the
back of the house to get to water for our potted plants.
I also LOVE that you don’t have to crouch to get the hose or to turn it on.
It is so easy to use!:
We liked it so much I immediately ordered another one for the other side
of the house.
They aren’t the most beautiful holders, but they are streamlined enough that
you don’t really notice them. The great part is you can easily hide them
behind bushes for or trees too. I’ll probably bury the lead hose in the mulch
so you don’t see it.
