So which is right for your garden, and is there really much difference?
Well, spoiler alert! If you’ve got a small to medium sized garden a traditional garden hose is a solid choice.
I went with the Hozelock Auto Reel because it’s got a very nice feature that automatically retracts the hose. It’s a really smart product that solves the biggest problem with traditional hoses – bloody kinks and knots!
