Gilmour Hose and Sprayer. My New Gardening Equipment.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gilmour for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is Chris from I love gardening. I grew up in the garden and continue to expand my gardening expertise every year. I demand the very best out of my garden and that means I need good equipment.

Years ago, I used to go out and buy the cheapest products I could. I don’t do that anymore. Honestly, it costs more in the long run. I have found that cheap products wear out quickly.

Gilmour brand says this about themselves, “The Gilmour brand exists to exceed the needs of gardeners and homeowners who demand the very best for their lawns and gardens. With over 40 years of lawn and garden service, Gilmour Flexogen is proud of its American heritage rooted in quality, innovation, and value. The brand is committed to remaining the leader of water and gardening products through continuous improvement in the areas.” I would agree. They sent me two hoses, and nearly a dozen accessories. I have used about half of them so far and love them. After my previous experience with my cheap hose, I am especially happy to have a great one now. Gilmour’s hose is long-lasting and durable. It is made of 8 different layers. Read more about Gilmour on Facebook.

Let me tell you a little more about Gilmour. Gilmour is a trusted and reliable brand of watering tools. The hoses have been made in the USA for over 40 years and come with a lifetime warranty. I am excited because I can really put this hose and these tools to the test and expect them to last because of the unbeatable quality, flexibility and durability of the products. You can find Gilmour products at your local home improvement and gardening centers.

I tried to get it to kink and it just wouldn’t unless I literally grabbed it and bent it in half. Gilmour Flexogen says that the hose beats the competition on all main strength indicators as proven by burst, abrasion and twist tests. I believe it. We also used the Gilmour watering sprayer shown here:


The hose and sprayers were very timely. In Minnesota, we are just getting our gardens going. I have two vegetable gardens this year that I will be using the Gilmour Flexogen products with. The first one is this straw bale garden. If you want to learn about straw bale gardening, you can follow our series here, or our videos here. We will be updating these images, and you can follow  the growth of our gardens through the blog over the coming months.  The second is a kitchen garden. We just planned out and planted the kitchen garden. We are watering it for the first time with our new Gilmour sprayer. We wanted to show you in video how well the sprayer worked If you want to see the rest of our garden, you can tour it through our virtual reality tour here.
