We’re all too familiar with the proverbial no-where-for-the-hose-to-go-problem. While there are plenty of storage options on the market, most are plastic eyesores that are bound to break. Before spending some cash you’ll regret, opt for a DIY approach.

Secure Post in Ground

Begin by staining your 5-foot 4x4 post, cap and finial. While the stain dries, select the perfect place for your hose to be stored and dig a 1-foot deep hole. For this project, setting your post with just compacted dirt should be fine, but using small rocks or cement will guarantee a secure fit. Place the post in the ground (about 2 feet down) and tightly pack the dirt around, checking that the post is straight as you go.

Add Accessories

Before placing the cap on the post, apply a layer of wood glue to the top. Pre-drill through the center of the cap and post and secure the cap and finial using the lag-bolt provided on the finial. Finish off with two decorative plant hooks on each side of the top and a third and final hook placed upside down at the bottom for easy (and stylish!) hose storage.
