A Time-Saving Hose

The cumulative hours you'll spend wrestling with the kinks and knots of a subpar hose could be better spent on the deck with your feet kicked back. Since it's made from polyurethane, the Slim & Light Professional Garden Hose is soft, flexible, tough, and won't grow brittle. Coiled strain reliefs combat kinkage at the hose's ends, the most vulnerable parts. [$60 (for 50 ft); williams-sonoma.com]
