Yard Butler HCF-3
There are also stand alone hose hangers that have an attached faucet as well. The Yard Butler HCF-3 Free Standing Garden Hose Hanger with Faucet is a great example of a hose holder with a faucet attached. This hose holder allows you to add another faucet to your yard without hiring someone to do it for you! There are a couple of ways to install this hanger. You can either dig a hole, center the post in the hole and pour in quick setting concrete. Or you can slide it over a fencing ‘t’ post. Of course, you will need to run a hose to the hanger to get water to it, but if you want you could dig a trench and run a piece of pvc pipe through it and insert your hose. That way you will only have a short expanse of hose sticking up by the holder. This might not work in areas that get a deep freeze because you will need to drain the hose during the winter to prevent breakage. However, if you use an air compressor to blow all the water out of the hose you should be fine. Another option is to use decorative hose guides to guide the garden hose through your yard the way you would like.
There are many options when it comes to finding a great garden hose hanger. No matter if you choose a wall mount or free standing hose holder, you will find that you hose stays stored neatly and conveniently!
