1) Landscaping Guide:
Simply lay the hose out and experiment with different curves and patterns before you start digging or planting.
2) Protect New Trees:
If in your new landscaping you have young trees that need to be staked and supported use a length of hose around stakes and trunks. The hose is flexible enough to give when the wind blows without cutting into the delicate bark.
The irony is even though you can no longer use a hose the way it was originally intended, it still works wonderfully for gardening projects and more.
On the next slide check out two creative ways to utilize an old garden hose that'll make life easier.
