Garden Protector

Martha Stewart Living, August 2004

Keep your garden hose from cutting into flower beds when snaking around a corner by adding a homemade hose guide.

Hammer a 24-inch length of rebar (used for cement installation) into the ground; cover with 1 1/2-inch-diameter copper tubing, cut to fit, and a copper cap. The copper spins as the hose moves past, and keeps the hose from catching.
