The water hose I had before was not long enough to do my full backyard. After purchasing my 100 foot hose, although needed, it was too much to keep the full amount at its home location. We decided to roll half at its home location and build an extension pole for the rest. This will help with those daily jobs, and still have the rest of the hose for seasonal cleanings. This makes this very long hose more organized and decorative next to my zen garden. The following photos show the process for installing the extension pole and the final hose hanger. We included a solar light on the top of the post and a plant hanger on the side opposite the hose hanger.
