Soak up these new ideas

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - GARDENING -

PRO­TECT YOUR PA­TIO

Coil an old hose un­der large flow­er­pots and con­tain­ers to im­prove drainage and avoid stains and warped wood.

DE­SIGN A FLOWERBED

Hoses bend and are eas­ily moved, so you can use them to lay out your vi­sion be­fore dig­ging into the soil.

SAFETY-PROOF BLADES

Cut to size and slice length­wise to make a pro­tec­tive cover for hand­saws or gar­den scis­sors.

MAN­AGE CORD CLUT­TER

Split a length of hose length­wise and use it to stream­line and en­case un­ruly cords.
