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?

About Maridy

Hi, I'm Maridy. I have many interests in life. Right now, my husband and I and our two girls (ages 14 and 7), along with a couple of dogs currently live in a 33ft trailer while we build our house on our homestead property in Northern Nevada (Castle Rock Homestead). Follow us on that journey to building our high desert homestead from the ground up! I also have a passion for hiking and have a blog for that, too. (Journey in the Wilderness) Join me there as I explore the beautiful outdoor landscapes of Northwestern Nevada and Eastern California. And finally, I love historical costuming. Though I haven't been able to do much of that in recent years, I'm hoping that "once the house is built" I'll be able to get back into it more. See what all we've done with that on my Yesteryear Productions blog.

Whaddya think?
