The first choice is a garden hose hanger. This contraption starts with either a rod or a flat bar that extends out from your house, a shed, or even a tree. You can anchor the hanger on any structure that will hold the weight. The rod or bar usually extends out at least twelve inches. At the end of the bar there will be some kind of decorative slab. Imagine a shield with a long rod sticking out of the back of it near the top. The rod is attached to the house. The shield or decorative piece is there to hide the hose that hangs down behind when it is coiled over the rod or bar. The name hanger comes from the fact that the hose hangs above the ground over the bar. These storage contraptions are usually installed near the water source so that the hose can remain hooked up when it is stored. Garden hose hangers do not take up much room, but it can take a while to remove the hose from the hanger so they are best for homeowners who use their garden hoses a moderate amount.
