A “new” way to wind a garden hose


Yesterday, I experienced one of those moments that make you say No Way! I was winding the garden hose back into its spot on the ground. It kinda sorta did its own thing and wound into a figure 8 rather than a circle. But here’s the thing,  as it was being put down, I didn’t have to twist or wind the hose to get it to lay flat. In fact, the whole thing laid down with nary a twist in the entirey. Which means, that in theory, when I pull the hose out next time, it shouldn’t twist and coil and kink.

Did I really just discover the secret to un-kinked hoses? Will it unwind with the same ease? Will my gardening life hereafter be blessed with free flowing water?

Have any of you experienced this? Am I really just now discovering this? Is this the “right” way to wind hoses and I’m just now learning about it??? Or was it a total fluke and it won’t make a difference?
