My Thoughts on the Hose Pot
This is actually my most favorite Good Directions product yet! I use my garden hoses quite a bit, since we don’t currently have any sprinkler systems installed at our house. (And with this continuing drought, it’s not exactly high up on my list, haha!)
Since my hose is used every single day to upkeep my patio ferns and flower beds, the hose is usually found strewn all over the place. It’s annoying. And ugly. So I had been scouring Pinterest for some unique and practical ways to hide a lawn hose, and in my searching I had completely discounted bowls and pots. I just figured they would just look too cumbersome or clunky in my yard.
But then I gave this little Key West Hose Pot from Good Directions a try, and I am in LOVE! It’s attractive, it’s practical, and the dynamic leaf pattern details just scream handmade. Crafted from brass with a beautiful natural patina, I was surprised to find just how well-designed this hose pot is.
The pot isn’t just a generic container with a lid – it’s got a slight rise in the interior center that guides and contains the hose while eliminating kinks and snarls. There are plenty of discrete holes in the bottom of the pot that provides drainage, and the convenient side hole allows the hose to stay connected to the faucet. The wide base also allows for it to be well balanced – the pot doesn’t slide around the deck when you’re watering.
I’m slowly filling out my patio with pots, garden art and furniture that my husband and I have picked up on our travels, and this pot is truly artwork for my patio! You would never guess that it hides my previously garishly tangled patio hose! I’m planning on picking up another pot for my back patio hose as soon as I get to redecorating that side of the house!
