Homemade Garden Hose Holder

I am looking for ideas on how to make a garden hose holder/winder? I don't mind if it sits on the ground or is mounted to the house. I just need someone's creativity to help me come up with a way not to spend $50 on a contraption that holds a garden hose.

Homemade Garden Hose Holder

My husband made a very simple garden hose holder for our 3-bedroom home. When we were done with the hose we had to wind it by hand.

He dug a small hole and sunk a long pipe into the ground next to the water faucet. Next he screwed on an elbow at the end of the pipe, then he screwed on a shorter pipe. So by the time he was done it looked like an upside down letter L. The longer pipe was in the ground and the shorter pipe is where he wrapped the garden hose.

We didn't waste our money on those cheaply made plastic garden hose storage units. I've seen more of those in the trash along side of the road after a few years. (05/04/2009)

Mine always used an old tire rim, and would mount one on a heavy post set into the ground near the faucet---then you just wrap the hose around the rim manually,. (05/05/2009)

I've seen people use inexpensive large size, low height flower pots to wind their hoses inside of and it looks pretty cool ;-) (05/09/2009)

I am adding to the pot idea. This is what I am going to do. I have a fancy hose reel and it is a pain to stand there and crank and crank. SO I am getting a big flat pot, I have found them for around 20.00 and then in the middle I am going to find a shallow bucket to coil the hose around and when it rains I can pull the bucket out and use the rain water I have collected. Just a thought. (05/09/2009)

Plastic hose winders end up in garage sales and thrift shops, if you'd rather have one of those. Mine is shaped like a box with a winder inside, and as I pull the whole hose out the box dumps over, so I'm not in love with it. (05/09/2009)

I've made several using scrap pressure treated lumber. I used a scrap 4x4 cut to the height I wanted it to stand once it was set in a hole in the ground, say maybe 5' long total. Then I took scrap 2x4's and cut two to the same length about 18", drilled 2 holes in each on one end and mounted them, one on either side of the the 4x4 about 6" from the top to use as 'arms' to hold the hose. These last for years and my cat loves to sit on the top of the post as her look out :) I've used the same concept on my privacy fence where I needed a hose holder by using the 4x4 fence post and mounting the 2 'arms' about 8" from the top of the post.
