I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.

You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity. We won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We give presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Hose Reel for Small Areas

First this is not something that I would purchase.
Why, you may ask especially when I am reviewing the product.
We live on a 4000 square metre block so all our hoses have to travel a long way as there are gardens everywhere with literally thousands of plants.
That’s not to knock this product as it is quite cleverly designed and marketed by Hozelock. 
If where you live is anything like Brisbane then you will have seen thousands of units built or being built, I think this is where this product will come into its own.
It is retractable with ten metres of hose complete with a high quality nozzle and is very portable, light and importantly for small area's is very easy to store.
So in the right place this is a great product.

Made in Great Britain so you can be assured of the quality and it has a two year warranty.

  1. Great review but how much do they cost for an Australian suburban front yard size yard?
