Garden hoses are never pretty. There are many options to house them, but most are clunky beige plastic or demand cumbersome winding action. This option found at Smith & Hawken is one solution that might ease the pain a little. It's a simple concept, simply hide the hose inside a pot! This Bronze Hose pot conceals your garden hose in a nice antiqued looking container. The opening is sized just right for coiling (up to 100ft) and it also has a side opening to connect to a faucet... If your garden decor aesthetic doesn't lend itself to bronze, we imagine this could be a simple enough DIY project too! You could transform any large enough container by drilling a hole on the side. Has anyone tried something like that? The Bronze Hose Pot is currently on sale for $63 here.
