Apparently most of these things are made from polypropylene which tends to become hard, unflexible and brittle after being exposed to sunlight/weather for a certain length of time unless they contain UV-stabilizers. I suspect most gardening stuff does not contain this to keep the price down. We used have PP ropes on our boat which just frayed and disintegrated after a couple of years outside.
