Trash to Treasure: Re-Imagining Your Waste {Garden Hoses}
Having spent a little bit of time watering the plants, I thought of ways one might be able to repurpose a garden hose and came across these creative ideas.  Luckily, all of our hoses are in great working order, but should they ever need to be replaced, I’ll definitely consider at least one of these options.
