How to Choose a Garden Hose Gun in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Choose Between Plastic and Metal Hose Guns, or Go for a Hybrid Version
  2. Select Models With at Least Two or Three Spray Settings

1. Choose the Material of Your Hose Gun Carefully: Plastic Is Lightweight and Metal Is Long Lasting, While Hybrid Versions Offer Both

1. Choose the Material of Your Hose Gun Carefully: Plastic Is Lightweight and Metal Is Long Lasting, While Hybrid Versions Offer Both

Most hose guns are plastic, making them durable, lightweight and easy to connect to your existing hose. It's important to match the material of the hose connector and the watering gun connector to avoid leaks. Plastic and metal items contract and expand at different rates, so if these materials are mismatched and cold water is used in warm conditions, leaks can occur.


Metal watering guns are becoming, once again, more popular, as people seek to reduce their reliance on micro-particle-releasing plastic. Properly coated metal, such as zinc, is longer lasting in garden conditions since it is frost resistant. Many plastic garden hose guns perish prematurely due to being left outside in wintery conditions.


Hybrid options, a combination of a metal casing and plastic triggers and connectors, last longer than plastic alone and connect seamlessly with existing plastic fittings on your hose. Luckily, however, most hose accessories sold in the UK have standard universal-sized fittings and can be connected, whatever brand they are.

2. Look For at Least Two or Three Spray Options for Gardens, or Five if You Also Plan on Washing Your Car or Patio

2. Look For at Least Two or Three Spray Options for Gardens, or Five if You Also Plan on Washing Your Car or Patio

All hose guns have a variety of spray settings. Some have as few as two, which is suitable for basic gardening tasks such as gentle watering and the fierce cleaning of mud off a spade. If you also want to wash your car or patio, you'll need to choose a gun with at least five options. Here's a rundown of what the settings mean: 


  • Fine mist: for watering seedlings, delicate flowers, and houseplants if you bring them outside.
  • Cone spray: concentrates the droplets of water to the outside of the nozzle, so there isn't such a risk of flooding a single area if you aren't paying attention.
  • Fine rose: designed to emulate a traditional watering can rose, this is more drenching than mist or cone settings.
  • Bubble jet: thanks to the bubbles aerating the jet of water, this will reach plants at the back of flower beds or vegetable patches without damaging those in close range.
  • Fast fill: is designed to act like a running tap, so you can quickly fill a watering can or car-cleaning bucket.
  • Flat rinse: ensures the water is spread out equally in a horizontal line, making it ideal for rinsing off soap suds when washing the car. It's too powerful to use on plants.
  • Jet stream: is the most powerful water setting. It's for cleaning only, so use it on vehicles, patios, decking and garden equipment, not on plants.

To water larger areas regularly, see our recommended sprinklers for lawns.

    10 Best Peat-Free Composts UK 2022 | Westland New Horizon, Miracle Gro and More
    Peat has traditionally been used in compost because it contains nutrients and retains water brilliantly – unless specifically labelled peat-free, a bag of compost is likely to be made up of at least 70% of it. However, from 2024, peat will be banned from retail all-purpose compost and potting soil because its use is so detrimental to the environment. In the past, peat-free compost has been of questionable quality, but with the 2024 ban looming, mainstream compost manufacturers have been investing heavily in the development of viable peat-free alternatives. We look at the suggested use, composition, cost and bag sizes of the best peat-free composts to buy in the UK, all of which are available for delivery from Amazon, B&Q and others.
