Have trouble keeping your garden hose neatly coiled? Try this hose storage tip. Install a mailbox on a post near your outdoor spigot. The mailbox is sturdy enough to hold a lot of hose looped over it.

As a bonus, the mailbox itself can be used to store hose accessories, such as spare gaskets, in case your hose springs a leak, and attachments like nozzles and wands. That way, everything is in one place and handy when you need it. The mailbox and post can be painted to blend into their surroundings or to coordinate with the colors of your house and garden.
