What is a garden hose?

Also known as a house pipe, the garden hose is a source of supplying water to the plants. It is an essential tool used for gardening. Without proper supply of water, plants may wither and die which is why it is necessary to have a garden hose at your home. Most of the times, there are some spots in your garden where the garden hose can’t reach which means that water is not supplied to some plants. Those plants won’t grow properly. It is important to have an expandable garden hose at your place so that water can be supplied to each and every plant in your garden.

Working of an expandable garden hose

Garden hose consists of a spigot from which the water flows out to the spot where you want to supply the water. Expandable garden hoses consist of two layers. The inside layer is made of latex or PVC and the water runs when it is turned on. The outer layer is made up of elastic and is responsible to protect the hose from damage when the inner layer expands. When the garden hose is turned on, it expands as much as it is required to and when the garden hose is turned off, the hose turns back to its original length.

When the garden hose is not being used, it is important to turn the tap water off.
