    Yes I hear you loud and clear. For now what I've decided to do is just go no-mow in 3 corner areas of the lawn. I'm just going to let it go a bit wild, see what springs up in it. In one of the bigger areas I'm keeping a path through the wild area which is mown.

    New Hose Pipe

    I was under the impression it had to be part of the tap if the tap was outside? Maybe I got it wrong, but there is nothing stopping you connecting any old bit of hose to that tap.
