The Best Garden Hose Carts

Garden hose carts serve as outdoor accessories that store garden hoses in an accessible manner. Hoses wrap around the central cylinder of these wheeled carts while a crank allows users to easily reel the hose off the cylinder. It's up to the individual gardener to determine the best garden hose cart for her specific needs, but user reviews, professional opinions and sales figures separate a few hose carts from the pack.
