Easy Garden Irrigation’s top picks for Hozelock hose reels
Best Hozelock hose reel for small gardens
When you’re looking to upgrade your garden hose, aim for a length that will cover your whole garden up to your furthest border. Hozelock has made a handy range of different sized hoses for this very purpose, with 10m, 25m and 30m some of their popular hose lengths. Making sure you have the right length and width hose is paramount. The excess hose will mean more to store away, a greater chance of tangling, and less water pressure thanks to the reduced flow rate.
For a smaller garden, with a few flower beds and smaller borders, we recommend a Hozelock 10m hose reel that you can buy now for £63.99, or a Hozelock 2 in 1 hose reel with hose 25m that you can buy now for £47.99. These products are designed for maximum efficiency across a smaller area, to ensure reliable garden hose flow rate and great results.
With a fully automatic rewind, the wall-mounted Hozelock 10 metre hose reel is the perfect choice for smaller gardens or patios. It allows for easy use, covering your entire garden, with a retracting system for clean, safe and tangle-free storage as soon as you’re done. The locking mechanism features a powerful spring, so it only takes a small tug. Watering your garden has never been easier!
With easy installation, child-lock features and a premium antikink hose, this Hozelock 10m hose reel has everything you need for a smaller garden and minimal gardening needs. All accessories are included, including wheel brackets suitable to use with brick, stone and concrete.

The Hozelock 2 in 1 hose reel is used freestanding or mounted onto a wall - keeping your hose neatly stored and kept safe off the ground while removing any unnecessary crowding in your small garden. This durable reel has a stable frame with an extra-long winding arm to make manual rewinding as easy as possible.
Best Hozelock automatic hose reels
Manual hose reels are often sold at a lower cost than retractable hose reels, but many prefer the ease of an automatic rewind compared to the hand-crank process. This is especially true for those with limited mobility or hand strength. All the Hozelock automatic rewind hose reels sport features that makes them easy to use and reliable; such as the 180° pivot, allowing you to reach ever area of your garden, and a hose guide that ensures the hose rewinds without any kinks, tangles or effort.
We offer four different sizes in Hozelock automatic hose reels to ensure that any sized garden is able to benefit from the advantages of a retractable hose - our available sizes include the automatic Hozelock 10m hose reel priced at £63.99, the 20m auto Hozelock hose reel priced at £99.99, the Hozelock automatic hose reel 30m priced at £138.99, and the Hozelock auto hose reel 40m priced at £156.99.
The 20 metre Hozelock auto hose reel is a great solution for effortless watering in a small to medium-sized garden. The smooth auto rewind feature protects your hose from tangles and kinks and the UV stabilised and sturdy Polypropylene case hides your hose from strong sunlight, ensuring you a long-lasting hose.
If you are looking for a hassle-free way to water your medium-sized garden or patio, the Hozelock automatic hose reel comes with 30 metres of anti-kink hose and like the others in the range, sports a drum with a 180° pivot. Water every corner of your garden while keeping your reel mounted to the wall.
The Hozelock auto hose reel 40m is a fully automatic solution to watering your large garden while keeping your hose neat, contained, and protected. All you need to do is pull your hose from the wall-mounted reel to water the far corners of your large garden. When you’re done, the auto unwind will smoothly pull the hose back in - keeping your large hose from tangling or kinking.
Best Hozelock hose reel for large gardens
The main concern for watering a large garden is the increased risk of tangling, kinking, and damage to your hose. For example, it’s easier for a longer hose to be walked over, driven over, or left out in a mess. Hose reels are a great way to keep your hose protected while allowing you to water every bit of your large garden.
Our top picks of Hozelock hose reels for large gardens are wall-mounted hose reels (including the Hozelock auto hose reel 40m) and hose reel carts.
Our 40 metre wall-mounted Hozelock Fast Reel is a more cost-effective option than the 40-metre Hozelock auto hose reel, priced at £109.99. It’s operated by a hand-crank, but it contains an automatic layering system that neatly guides your hose back into place without kinks or tangles. This keeps the provided 40 metres of high-quality hose protected and well-organised.
Hose reel carts are great for watering large gardens and easily transporting a long hose in a neat and contained way. Buy the Hozelock Assembled Hose Cart with 30m Hose for only £49.99 and easily navigate any medium to large garden.

The Hozelock 2 in 1 hose reel design gives you freedom and flexibility to use the hose reel as you wish, either as a freestanding hose reel or a wall-mounted hose reel. The Hozelock 2 in 1 hose reel with hose 25m version is priced at £51.99 and comes with all the necessary accessories and fittings. The carry handle also makes it easy to store, with ease of use considered in all aspects of this design.
The 30 metre Hozelock Compact Cart is priced at £66.99 and is even easier to move around with its large wheels and adjustable-height towing handle. It perfectly navigates medium-sized gardens and rough terrain while supplying you with 30 metres of high-quality hose - making the task of watering your garden a breeze. The Hozelock 30 compact reel is protected with a fully enclosed design and comes with a manual layering mechanism that allows you to easily rewind the hose with your hands.
Hozelock compact and enclosed hose reels are ideal for gardeners who want to keep their hoses organised and safe from weathering and damage. Leaving an open hose reel out in the sun will leave your hose vulnerable to tearing and cracking. These hose reels will thoroughly protect your hose while keeping it easily stored and neatly tucked away.
