Hose Holder

Both functional and flexible, this holder lets you stow up to 100 feet of hose, extra nozzles and sprinkler heads or other accessories on the two handy shelves.

You can set the post in concrete or make it portable by anchoring it to a metal holder for indoor storage during winter. Or lose the post altogether and mount the holder directly to your house, shed or fence...wherever is most handy for you.

The plan is easily customizable, allowing you to go for a more rounded appearance, rather than the blend of 45- and 22 1/2-degree cuts shown. You can also conceal the connection to your home's hose bib by drilling a hole in the post and feeding the hose through.
