We are close to my neighbor; she loves gardening, planting the flowers in every morning. I was trying to help her while we are talking to each other. After the planting she used the ordinary hose to watering their garden. According to her she replaces the hose every three months because the hose she bought is unstable and I just recommend her to buy the titeflex teflon hose to make sure that the hose is substantial. And besides she chooses different designs and styles what she wants to buy. Because she loves gardening she needs the substantial hose to protect and to maintain the good looks of her garden.
