Updated on April 12, 2018

I love to write and to share my knowledge, and like to think that my reviews will help people trying to decide whether to buy or not to buy

This Hozelock Wall-Mounted Hose Reel Makes Light Of Watering Your Garden

It would bring a little labor-saving and, dare I say it, a little luxury to your gardening efforts!

The hosereel is easy to wind and unwind, and fits on the wall, so that it's out of the way and you don't keep tripping over it. You can even leave your watering can on the ground underneath it, so it's space-saving too.

I bought this very Hozelock model in June last year. That's why I'm able to tell you about it from personal experience.

Pictures Of My Own Hozelock

These are all Hozelock photos taken in my own garden

You can see what it looks like fastened to the wall and what the back looks like before it is attached.

You can also see how it is packaged, and a clip on the wall, which is a separate accessory, but very useful for keeping the hosepipe off the ground when it is unravelled, and it helps to guide the hose so that you don't knock over loose plant pots, etc.

Here's a link to the Hozelock on Amazon.

This Wall-Mounted Version Is The King Of Hose Reels

This is the first time I've ever had a wall-mounted hose reel, although I'm a seasoned gardener. Previously I started with just a hosepipe attached to my garden tap, and later I graduated to a floor-standing hose reel. It was good, but not as good as this.

It's so easy to use, and, as I am now over 70, it's important to have something that doesn't require a lot of effort and strength. I absolutely love it, and was so excited when my son first attached it to the wall and I tried it out. I think it must be fairly easy to mount, as it only took him about ten minutes, although, if you are not a D.I.Y. expert, it might take you a little longer.

I've added a video near the bottom of this page, showing you step-by-step what you have to do, and, amongst my photographs at the foot of the page is one showing you the back of the hose reel (the bit that slots onto the wall mountings, so that you can see what it looks like).

It's very easy to unwind and wind up. The instructions tell you to keep the tap turned off whilst you are doing this, as the hosepipe swells when water is passing through it, whereas, when the water flow is stopped, the hose flattens out, and you can reel it in turning the handle without much effort.

You can buy various attachments, which clip on and off very easily, and make your watering jobs a pleasure. I've never had all these options before, and was most impressed - they make the whole concept of gardening so much easier.

Some garden implements are a bit of a luxury - what do you think of this wall-mounted hosereel?

Accessories:

To get your watering system working, you will need an outside tap to which your Hozelock hose reel will be attached.

Then you'll need the basic hosepipe - make sure you order one that is long enough to stretch the length of your garden. This will come with your hose reel, when you order it.

You will also need the basic attachments shown below, and I would advise you to buy an extra one, so that you have a spare, in case the original one gets lost or broken.

If you look on the Amazon website, you can see

  • Hozelock Telesopic Lance Spray - very useful for watering high hanging baskets
  • Hozelock Rectangular Sprinkler - useful for watering the garden if you want to walk away and leave the sprinkler on a specific area of your garden for a few minutes

Hozelock Nozzle And Fitting Pack

These are the basic Hozelock accessories you'll need to get started - attaching the various nozzles to the tap and to the end of the hose

 

Here's a YouTube Video showing you how to mount the Hozelock reel on the wall and how to attach the hose pipe and accessories

You can see that it's quite easy to assemble, and the instructions are also shown on the box when it arrives.

      We need one of these for our front yard. I am constantly tossing the hose back over our juniper bushes so it is out of our mailmans way.
