When testing the waters with garden hoses, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. After all, hoses do come in different lengths, diameters, kink and twist resistances. Read on to find the right hose for you without any hassle.

How to choose between different garden hoses

The first thing you want to consider is the length. What works for you depends on the size of the area in which you’ll be using the hose. If you’ll be watering your garden, choose a hose length that is as close as possible to your lawn size. The hose diameter is totally up to you.

If in doubt, try our garden size calculator to find out or double-check the size of your lawn.

To make things even easier, Fiskars hoses and connectors have colour coding, so you know exactly what goes with what.

It might be tempting to go for a longer hose or a bigger diameter. The larger the hose diameter and the longer the hose, the heavier it is to move around. However, when watering a big garden, a large diameter hose can maintain more water pressure.

Avoid the biggest pitfall

There is nothing more annoying than hose kinking and twisting. You can easily prevent this from happening by choosing a hose that is high-quality, has the right kind of reinforcement and wall thickness. If you don’t mind the tangles, you have even more options from which to choose.

Keep these in mind when looking for garden hoses

Hose diameter

A larger diameter provides more water pressure in larger gardens, but can be heftier to handle.

Kinking and twisting

Choose a hose that doesn’t kink or twist easily.

Colour coding

Helps to find matching connectors and hoses.

Quality

A high-quality garden hose should be UV-resistant and last for at least 5 years.
