What are the main features of the Gardena Terrace Hose 10m?

The spiral hose is made from thick, durable rubber and it has a water stop and universal connectors that are very easy to connect and screw onto the tap. It comes with a spray gun which is excellent quality and has a spout that's capped with steel and has no drips or leaks.

What is the Gardena Terrace Hose 10m like to use?

The various intensities of shower from the hose gun are controlled with a simple thumb switch. It can't mist or provide a single strong jet of water, and although this is perfect for potted plants or herb gardens, it’s a little frustrating for other tasks like cleaning a patio or washing a car. There’s also a lot of tension on the hose when it’s extended to its full length, so it can easily catch on pipes, pots, or garden ornaments.

What is the Gardena Terrace Hose 10m suitable for?

This hose is best suited to watering plants in small gardens, courtyards, patios and balconies within reach of 10m.

How easy is the Gardena Terrace Hose 10m to store?

At 10m, this is a short hose, so it’s great for storage. It recoils well to 50cm and holds its spiral shape and although it has no extra storage features it can be draped easily over the tap when not in use.

Is the Gardena Terrace Hose 10m good value for money?

This hose is fantastic value. It comes with a good, five year warranty, is a reasonable price, and it’s well-made. However, although we love its performance for gentle watering, you couldn’t use this hose or its gun for cleaning a patio or washing a car.
