Share Article

Garden Designer Mo Gilmer harnesses Nature’s camouflage strategy to disguise unsightly garden hoses with animal print Hose Clothes, the first release in her new private-label Garden Wear product line available exclusively at MoPlants.com.

Hose Clothes™ are easily removed for machine washing or for winter storage. If you change the style or color scheme of your garden next year, you can change your Garden Wear™ too. Our plan is to expand beyond animal prints into luscious stylized patterns and colors.

The age old problem in any garden is how to disguise the ugly but necessary garden hose. Inspired by the natural camouflage of African wildlife, Mo Gilmer believes the best way to disguise garden hoses is to follow Nature's own model.

"I realized that a leopard's spots help them blend in with the jungle. Why wouldn't those same patterns make a garden hose disappear too?" says Mo Gilmer, the innovative product's inventor. "Printing patterns on rubber hoses just isn't practical and it won't hold up under the hot sun and wear and tear of frequent use. I struggled with how to solve this dilemma when a slide-on cover similar to pantyhose gave me the answer."

Hose Clothes™ are constructed with sturdy nylon Spandex, the same water and sun- resistant stretchy fabric used to make bathing suits. When designed to the exact dimensions of an ordinary 25 foot garden hose using a pantyhose-tight fit, Mo's Hose Clothes™ bend and stretch with the hose in every direction. A trade secret anchor ensures Hose Clothes™ stay put when wet or dry.

"Hose Clothes™ are easily removed for machine washing or for winter storage. If you change the style or color scheme of your garden next year, you can change your Garden Wear™ too. Our plan is to expand beyond animal prints into luscious stylized patterns and colors."

Each Hose Clothes™ sells for $24.99 and is currently available in Leopard, Cheetah and Tiger patterns and is sold only at http://www.Moplants.com.
