In fact, I can't think of anyone who would need less than two hose reels because one is necessary for your front hanging baskets and the other for the backyard veggie garden.
Not to mention filling up the pools and washing the deck and patio.
And you know how it is when it's time to give the dog a bath. The hose reel must be handy and swivel easily or you're out of luck!
Hose reels make the world go round. So invest in a good one. You don't want to waste precious time and money replacing a hose reel that doesn't get the job done right.
Liberty Garden Products is back better than ever this week with the #516 wall mount retractable hose reel that will get you "reeling" with excitement!

Broken hose reels for the record!
Broken hose reels tossed to the curb on every street. I counted 7 of them!
And you know exactly what that means. These folks are going to have to purchase a new hose reel. After all, no one wants their hose flipping and flopping all over the patio, deck or driveway.
An organized hose is a happy hose. Not to mention sanitary hose. In my teenage years I worked on a farm. The farmer told me that it was critical the nozzle never touches the ground.
Why? The hose gets contaminated and spreads that contamination to your plants and vegetables when you go to water. So hose reels are essential to keep your space clean and sanitary.
But if you don't buy a quality hose reel such as the ones Liberty Garden Products proudly boasts....you are making a serious mistake.
Because it could easily be you replacing a broken hose reel next year. And you tossing that broken hose reel to the curb. Frustrating!
Who has time, energy and money for that? Not I. Not you!

Choosing the right Liberty Garden Hose Reel that's spot-on for you and your yard!
Answer. The #518 and the #516 Liberty Garden Products hose reels are very close relatives.
The #518 (featured last week) and the #516 (featured today) are very similar in style and function with the predominant difference being that the #518 is longer.
How much longer? The #518 can hold a 100-feet of 1/2-inch PVC hose and the #516 65-feet of 1/2-inch PVC hose.
So it's all about you and the length your lawn and garden requires.
For my front yard, the #516 featured today couldn't be any more ideal. I wouldn't even want a longer hose! It would be overkill.
Perfect for watering my little Top Hat blueberry bushes, flowering pots and pansies.
But for the backyard? Only the #518 will do. It's goes the distance with the 100-feet.
Long enough to quench the thirst of all my patio plants but also able to stretch all the way to my veggie garden raised beds.
So assess your yard and space to determine which hose reel is your perfect match! It's kind of like dating hose reel style.
Don't get "hosed" by inferior hose reels
Do you like hose carts? Hose Stands? Mounted hose reels? What are your preferences? And they may switch depending on whether you plan on using the hose reel in the front or backyard.
Don't get "hosed" by fake and phony imitations that just don't reach Liberty Garden Products caliber of excellence.
Hoses get used multiple times a day. Frustrating to use a subpar product! Only use the best from Liberty Garden Products.
Over the years, it's been my pleasure to test many if not most of their hose reels and they never cease to impress me with their design and innovation.
Even better? Bang for your buck. Liberty Garden Products offers you value. Quality products priced just right.
Hose reels that you'll use season after season.
And they are always reinventing themselves with new products to thrill you! Each spring, I'm ecstatic to see what they've come up with for the year. You will be too!
Good luck. I hope you win!!!
