WHY SETTLE FOR
The idea came to me when we moved into our very first house on the Swedish west coast.
To see the house was to love it. Charming and inviting, it had a lovely patio and a stunning garden. A wonderful outdoor environment where we could see ourselves surrounded by the warmth of friends and family.
But then I spotted it – that dull green garden hose, with its orange connectors and rusty wall bracket that just screamed “Ugly! Ugly! Ugly!”. It pulled me from my daydream.
We decided to buy the house on one condition: the garden hose had to find a new home. My suggestion: in the garbage …
I set out to buy a new hose.
“So I decided to do it myself.”
I searched everywhere for a finer one – with a white tube, perhaps, which I thought would match the house perfectly.
And everywhere it was the same sad story: green, green, green and orange, and giant ugly wall mounts.
I almost gave up. But I just couldn’t let go of the idea of a white garden hose. I really wanted one. So I dug deeper and found – to my surprise – that stylish garden hoses simply didn’t exist. How could it be that no one made them?
Especially since, judging from the garden blogs and forums, there was a huge demand.
So I decided to do it myself.
I was now on a mission: to design luxurious alternative garden appliances. And Garden Glory was born.
Why settle for the ordinary?
