Why you should not use cheap garden hose

June 6th, 2008by Vicky · No Comments

new pond in the back yard  We have a swamp cooler that cools our garage, and we had a short hose we bought at WalMart for a few dollars that ran from the hose bib, to the cooler.  When I went out yesterday morning and watered everything, it was all hunky dory.Well, when I went out at about 6pm last night, I found the hose had split, and it was fountaining up in the air about 5′ and had added this pond to the back yard.


I squished my way through the clay soil and got it turned off, but wow did we have a lot of water.This is where the hose broke, my hubby had already replaced it by the time I got the picture taken.

 As you can see we have a small hill between the garage and the garden (left over from when they built up the pad for the garage, which was built after we bought the house) and we had a mini waterfall over the bluff into the backyard where all my tomatoes are planted.  Fortunately, it didn’t flood them.
 The part that worried me though was it flooded the greenhouse.  When I looked over and saw this, I was hoping it wouldn’t just sink into the ground.  See my part of the country is an old lake bottom, and the soil can settle, well, a LOT if you leave water on it like this.
 The inside was pretty flooded, the water was about 3″ deep, but only about 1/2 way back into the greenhouse.  I’m planning on building lettuce boxes on the floor on each side, and I’m glad they were not already in place when this happened. 

We are getting ready to go to a convention for 2 days in July, and we are glad this happend now, and not then.  I can’t even imagine how bad this would have been if it had gone a few days.  Our backyard is privacy fenced, so it would have had to flood a LOT before the neighbors even noticed it behind us, and we have no neighbors on either side of us for an acre.

Thankfully, this morning everything is ok.  I was able to walk in the greenhouse to water everything without squishing into the dirt (like I did last night), and the pond is gone.  Amazing how much damage can be done in a short time, and how quickly it goes away.
