When looking in patio, yard or garden stores physically or on the internet, the search to find that ultimate storage container for your garden hose, things like copper, brass or any a sundry of different types of vessels are out there. However, when exploring for an authentic half oak wine barrel, well, good luck with finding a quality hose holder that is anywhere close to fitting the bill!
Because not everyone’s taste is the same, obviously different styles of all kinds leave the array of choices far-reaching, along with being mind-numbing. Yet, when it comes to authentic wine barrel styles, oddly there are very few options available.
Sure, there are plastic, fiberglass and other artificial products that can be made to look like a real wine barrel. I have an old plastic holder from several years back and because the paint had come off, it was made into a planter, but now it has a crack in it. If it didn’t have a plant in it that I don’t want to transplant, that ugly thing would be gone.
There are copper and brass hose holders but they’re not exactly cheap. Try getting a brass container and you will need to hit your retirement account – they are expensive.
The reason an oak half barrel is ideal is because oak itself is so hardy. The problem comes after a few years of use, the barrel exterior turns grey and it starts to look tired. Now some folks don’t mind that, but what if you could make that finish last years longer and in fact, allow the oak barrel to last nearly a lifetime?
That’s where Paso Wine Barrels’ Hose Holder is ideal. The barrel is sanded down, stained, sealed and then several coats of varnish are applied. This gives the interior and exterior a one-of-a-kind appearance and makes the barrel stand out while looking almost like a piece of furniture.
The barrel has holes drilled in it and that includes the second false bottom which is added to help with water drainage while bringing the hose up for easier access. Now, the barrel’s false bottom is removable offering either preference. You should note the second or false bottom is stained and sealed to give it the same qualities as the rest of the barrel.
As with all the Decorative Wine Barrels at Paso Wine Barrels, you have your choice of natural, black, burgundy or green paint on the hoop bands. This way, you can customize the look to fit any landscape.
Don’t take my word for it. Search any and everywhere you can, but when you’re done with investigating this unique hose container, it becomes evidently clear that Paso Wine Barrels Hose Holder is at the top when comparing half oak wine barrels as a hose holder. Or as the title states – this is the world’s best oak hose holder.
