Retractable Garden Hoses

2009
Thursday, July 16

I love the hose reel I have in the front of the house, that I bought from Frontgate, so much, I bought some more retractable reels. I bought another garden hose reel for the back yard as well as an air hose reel, for the garage, for my compressor.

The garden house reel for the backyard is made by Reel King and is a 5/8 house that reels out to 75 feet. The best price I found was at the Home Depot.




After I mounted it I was inspired to finally mount the hose reel in the front of the house as well.

Potting Bench

2009
Wednesday, July 8

I finally had the chance to assemble the potting bench I bought forever ago. The box had been sitting in our garage, taking up walk space in between are cars.

It didn't take that long to assemble. It's made out of cedar and has two lids that come off and u can sweep excess dirt into the bin area. I can't wait to use it, instead of potting things on the ground.

Landscape - Planted

2009
Monday, July 6

I bought a couple of things to replace some plants on the planting bed next to the driveway. There were a couple of things that got munched I wanted to replace. So I bought another 'Win & Roses' Weigela, which has pink blooms, a unique Hydrangea and some blanket flowers.
