8 Cool Storage Ideas For the Garden Hose

A recent transplant from a 400-square-foot apartment in Brooklyn to a single family home in the midwest, I'm on a hunt for something I haven't given much thought in my adult life: garden hose storage. And it ain't pretty:

It turns out that it's not so simple to just walk into the local hardware store and pick up something simple, modern(ish), and elegant for storing the garden hose. Instead, you're met with huge, clumsy, plastic contraptions that you wouldn't want junking up the front of the house. So that led me on a deeper search to turn up ten cool options. Here's what I found:

TOP ROW:
1) Wall Mount Hose Jockey at Modernica, $109
2) 3-in-1 Stainless Steel Hose Reel from Plow & Hearth, $330
3) Resin Hose Pot with Granite Finish at Yardlover, $58
4) Wall Mounted Hose Reel by Yard Butler, $109
5) Rust Proof Hose Hanger by Yard Butler, $10

BOTTOM ROW:
6) a DIY idea from Sunset
7) Gecko's Toes, $15
8) a DIY with a galvanized pail from DIY Del Ray
