Garden Hose, Britains Floral Garden Display


The lawnmower has a detachable grass bin, and the hose has three parts: the high-visibility orange hose itself (presumably high-visibility orange to stop it being accidentally run over by the mower!), a green reel, an orange sprinkler unit, and an upright orange stopcock unit with a peg that fits into the holes on the flowerbeds.

Because the hose tends to be a bit twisty, it can sometimes be difficult to place the lightweight sprinkler unit so that the hose doesn’t flip it over.
