Things to Consider
The easiest way to determine how much hose you’ll need is to think about your typical watering jobs then measure from the spigot to those areas. The diagram to the right can help give you an idea for typical hose lengths.
For shrubs and flowers in a bed close to the spigot, you will need about 25-50 feet of hose.
For washing your car in the driveway, you could need up to 50 feet of hose.
For watering areas that are farther away from the spigot, consider around 75-100 feet of hose.
Refer to the chart at the left for estimates based on average home lot sizes in the US. Of course, the amount of hose you’ll need varies based on the size of your yard.
