Garden Glory, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a designer brand of luxurious alternative garden appliances. These elegant and innovative products are for homeowners who won’t settle for the ordinary. Garden Glory is marketed and distributed by Kolibri & Fjäder. The idea came to them when they 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 they 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. They decided to buy the house on one condition: the garden hose had to find a new home and to set out to buy a new hose.

GARDEN GLORY 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. They almost gave up. But just couldn’t let go of the idea of a white garden hose. They really wanted one. So they dug deeper and found – to thier 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 they decided to do it theirselves. They was now on a mission: to design luxurious alternative garden appliances. And Garden Glory was born. Why settle for the ordinary? GardenGlory.com
