People don’t spend much time thinking about garden hoses, and when it comes time to buy a new one they often just grab anything off the shelf at a local hardware store. But there’s a huge difference between an average garden hose and a high-quality hose, so we’ve rounded up the best options that are currently available.

Best Heavy Duty Garden Hose

Available in seven different lengths as short as 3 feet up to as long as 100 feet, the Flexzilla Heavy Duty Garden Hose could very well be the last hose you ever buy. The hose itself is made of a thick polymer blend that’s strong and durable. Then the strong metal connectors are attached to long sleeves rather than small metal pieces shoved into the ends of the hose, so it won’t break at the ends like cheap hoses often do.

Best Expandable Garden Hose

Expandable garden hoses are very popular these days, and it’s easy to see why. Since they shrivel and contract when they’re not in use, you can store them in a fraction of the space needed for a normal hose. The problem is that low-quality expanding garden hoses tend to spring leaks after just a season or two of use. If you want an expanding hose that will last for years to come, check out the Soled Expandable Garden Hose, which is available in three different lengths that are all reasonably priced.

Best No-Kink Garden Hose

One of the main reasons that low-quality hoses are so frustrating is that they tend to kink. When they do, water flow is obstructed and you have to stop what you’re doing to go shake the kinks out of the hose. If you want a terrific hose that you never have to worry about, the Teknor Apex Neverkink Garden Hose is definitely the right hose for you. In fact, you probably couldn’t work a kink into this hose even if you tried.
