Since moving into our current home, we have had the
burden luxury of having a yard to manage and decorate. We have worked hard at keeping it maintained and a place where our children can enjoy hours of fun in the sun! But one thing has always been a thorn in my side; the garden hose! It's always in the way and looks quite tacky strewn across our lawn. It's time to get a hose holder that will look nice and yet still be quite functional.
Avant Garden Decor offers stunning Hose Holder varieties.
With all our garden hose holders we have used in the past, either the plastic has broken, or they take extra hardware to mount which the Husband rarely has time to get installed, or the attachment hose meant to connect the hose to the faucet is faulty and causes a lot of leaks. I wanted a hose holder than would look great in my yard and yet still be functional. So I easily fell in love with the CobraCo® Cauldron Solid Copper Hose Holder and Lid Set. Avant Garden also offers many other hose holder styles with lids, but this one was my favorite.
The Solid Copper hose holder is sleek, stylish, and well made, yet it's not extraordinarily heavy, so it is easy to move around if needed. It is made of 100% copper so it will wear well, even outdoors. It will blend with it's surroundings yet still looks quite fabulous.
The hose holder features a center post which guides hoses for easy coiling and uncoiling. You can even remove center post for storage of other household items such as magazines, wood, Christmas lights, books, potted plants and much more! can you just imagine how great that can look inside your home storing things like craft supplies, books, toys, and anything else you need to just get out of sight when guests come.
It also features solid black handles that allow for easy moving. They are well attached and you can rest assured they won't be breaking off while you are carrying a heavy load. Plus they add the perfect touch to the copper base.
Unlike many other hose holders of this variety, the Copper hose holder also comes with a lid! I think this is one of the features I love the most! The last hose holder we got that was just a round hose pot was open and it collected a lot of dirt, blown trash and leaves and much more debris. It made getting the hoses out of the holder rather unpleasant. The lid adds the perfect touch to the style and is functional in keeping debris, dirt, trash and leaves out. Plus if you are using it for inside decor, a lid helps hide a mess in a second when company comes over!
The hose holder also features a small opening in the base which allows for a hose to be thread through and attached to the faucet while still keeping the lid on the holder to prevent debris from falling in. This can also be plugged up with newspaper or other such materials and it can be used for a variety of other projects.
It is easy to wind the hoses around the center post and it offers great storage for your hoses without bunching, tangling and pinching your hoses! It keeps your hoses in great repair, protects them from the elements and holds a lot of hoses! This cauldron easily holds three garden hoses, a fun sprinkler for the kid's summer play and a regular sprinkler head that was just out in the yard.
I also love how well the hose holder has been able to help better organize my yard. It has turned our usual mess of garden hoses strewn across our grass into a well organized and out of the way look! It has turned our yard from looking like this:
To looking like this:

Plus with the winter coming soon, it also allows for easy storage of all my garden hoses without trying to hang them up in the garage or shed. I just leave them curled up in the hose holder and move the entire cauldron into storage.
Not to mention that this Cauldron Copper hose holder can also make a fantastic prop for the upcoming Halloween season! Just imagine the possibilities in your yard decor!
