Hanging a garden hose is a fairly simple task. But, hanging a remote garden hose in a way that minimizes lawn—and mowing—obstacles can be slightly more challenging. In this Backyard Life video, Today’s Homeowner host Danny Lipford shows you how to get water to remote areas of your backyard. This innovative solution will enable your garden hose to do its job—all while not getting in the way.
Hanging a Remote Garden Hose
- To start, simply stretch a garden hose out along a fence to your desired location.
- Next, mount it several inches off the ground using curved conduit straps (that can be purchased at your local home-and-garden center).
- Finally, thread on a shut-off valve at the far end of the hose. This can then be connected to either a shorter hose for watering grass, or a spray nozzle for watering plants.
With this ingenious setup, your remote garden hose will always be ready to use where and when needed. And, even better, it’ll no longer be a trip hazard or mowing obstacle!
