GatorHyde

Maker - Dee Evans

GatorHyde

Maker Story

A Gator for your Garden

How can you tell if a garden hose is durable?

If you’re Dee Evans (center with dad and brother), whose family has been in the hose business for 35 years, you’ve devised all kinds of ways to abuse a hose like this one, called GatorHyde. Dee left it outside, frozen solid, for months and repeatedly ran over it with a forklift and an 18-wheeler. Still the GatorHyde survived, without damage.

Besides being incredibly tough, GatorHyde is lightweight and flexible. Dee uses recycled polyurethane to make the outside of the GatorHyde, a practice that so far has saved 150,000 pounds of old hose from winding up in landfills. The ends are nickel-plated, which ensures that no harmful substances transfer from the hose. If you’re ready to say goodbye to those kinked, cracked and impossibly heavy hoses that are always a tangled mess, the GatorHyde is the perfect lifetime upgrade. Its kink-free design will keep the water flowing and the grass growing.
