The last garden hose storage option is a retractable storage device. Some retractable garden hose setups are manual with a handle on the side to turn the wheel and others are electric with automatic retraction. There is typically a large wheel inside a box with two exit points. One exit is for the end of the hose that connects to the water source. The other exit will be in the front for the end of the hose that you use. Most of these wheels can be removed when the lid is opened so that you can wind the hose around it. Once you have the hose tightly secured around the wheel, you can lower in back into the box being careful to put the ends of the hose through the right holes. When you want to use your hose you just pull on the end with the nozzle and it will unwind. When you want to store it you either turn the handle or push a button and the garden hose retracts. These are great for people have enough room to store the box outside and who use their hoses daily or quite often.
