The Best Garden Hose in Granite City, Illinois
We can’t imagine our Granite City gardens without the convenience of a high-quality, durable and hardworking Garden hosepipe. Remember the days of carrying heavy buckets of water from your home to the garden? No, thank you!
A Garden Hose is also an excellent addition to a water-wise garden, which is important in Illinois! A hose can allow you to comfortably transport water from rainwater storage to your garden. Hoses also aren’t just for watering the garden. Reel that handy tool out when you are washing your garden furniture tools or hosing off the car.
With so many garden hoses on the market, how do you know which is the best fit for you and your gardening needs? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. When it comes to taking care of any garden (big or small) in Granite City, we highly recommend the all-around garden superstar, the Flexzilla Garden Lead-In-Hose.

Why is it THE BEST Garden Hose in Illinois!
First of all, can we take a second to appreciate the beautiful color of this hose! Who says a garden hose has to be a dull color? We love that the manufacturer has added a fresh twist on the traditional green garden hose. Although this hose is a bit brighter than the conventional dark green hose we are used to, it still blends nicely with a big garden or even a tiny apartment garden.
OK, now back to the other equally essential details about the Flexzilla Garden Hose! Unlike old-school garden hoses that can kink, bend and break so easily, this hose is on our radar because it is incredibly flexible. According to the manufacturer, the Flexzilla hose is made from a unique polymer blend that won’t break and is made to withstand extreme weather conditions. From -40° to 140°F, this hose can handle it all; perfect for the weather in Crystal River!
Secondly, and this is something we are very excited about, the Flexzilla Hose is super durable. Now that’s what we’re talking about! It was built to handle challenging industries and environments, meaning it can quickly go from factory floor work to a stroll in your suburban garden. Talk about an allrounder! It is also crush resistant (it’s OK, we know you didn’t really mean to drive over your garden hose that one time) thanks to its aluminum fittings.
It won’t kink
Remember that kink we told you about? This hose, thank goodness, won’t kink under pressure. Yay! But how can this be? Well, just like memory foam is excellent when trying to get a good night’s rest, this hose is memoryless, meaning it will fight against kinks and lay flat. Plus, it coils easily to take the headache out of putting your garden hose away. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Say goodbye to leaks
Now, what is the one thing worse than a kinking garden hose? One that leaks water. This won’t only cause a mess in your garden and cause your water bill to skyrocket, it’s super bad for the environment, and no one wants that! Luckily, the Flexzilla hose is leak-free. Each hose has a superior O-ring which allows for a prolonged-lasting leak-free connection. Say no to wasting water!
Safe to drink from
We’ve all done it: take a refreshing sip of water from the garden hose after a tough session of working in the garden. And who doesn’t love giving their dogs a sip of water from the hose on a hot day or after a long walk? Good news: all of this is perfectly safe to do with the Flexzilla hose. It is lead-free, making it perfectly safe to drink water from this hose (that’s if the water coming from the tap is safe to drink, of course!).
Weight, what weight?
The Flexzilla has been designed to be lighter than traditional garden hoses, making it innovatively lightweight. This is a wonderful feature; ask anyone who has ever had to lug around a garden hose – it’s a tiresome process! But no need to worry. This nifty hose is easy to carry. But just because it’s pretty and lightweight doesn’t mean that this hose isn’t powerful. The Flexzilla’s maximum working pressure is at 70°F: 150 psi.
What do the ratings say?
Look, don’t just take our word for it! The ratings for the Flexzilla are absolutely superb. Out of its over 36 000 worldwide ratings on Amazon, this Garden Hose has an average of 4.6 stars out of 5. For its weight, the hose has an average of 4.3 stars. As for its stretchability, durability and maneuverability, all these factors averaged at four stars.
“Worth every penny,” wrote one user, while another user called it “phenomenal.”
There is a review from user Darren from Canada that we found pretty amusing, and just had to add it below for you to see:
If Dante were alive today, he’d make watering flowers with my previous hose the final punishment in the Ninth Level of Hell. My children learned most of their swear words watching me use that hose. It was rigid, unyielding, and kinked even when laid out in a straight line. And it wasn’t my first. It didn’t matter how much I paid. Every previous hose was a form of passive-aggressive torture. Hose manufacturers must be angry people.
The Flexzilla is everything those hoses were not. It is the perfect hose. It’s soft, easily flung about, and doesn’t try to curl up into a ball. Money well spent.
While, there you have it, Granite City residents!
We’ve shared the ins and outs of why we absolutely love the Flexzilla Garden Hose. Dear gardening friends, if you are struggling with a heavy, difficult-to-carry, and leaking water hose, you can seriously consider buying the Flexzilla Garden Hose.
From its funky new color, flexibility, and durability to its leak-safe design, lightweight, and refusal to kink, you shouldn’t hesitate to add the Flexzilla Garden Hose to your gardening arsenal.
