While watering the lawn and garden isn't too difficult in itself, rolling away the hose for storage can be heavy—and frustrating—work. Bulky lengths of hose need to be put away neatly, without bends or kinks that put pressure on the tub, making it susceptible to cracks and leaks. It's just as important to store the hose in a shady spot where it's protected from the harsh summer sun. This Auto-Wind Hose Reel winds the hose for you, keeping the length free from bends, protecting it from harmful rays, and giving your back a rest. Available on Plow & Hearth; $99.99.
