I wrote a great spraying paragraph --but posting time expired. Gone. But maybe a draft was saved--if so--where? To summarize hold the loop to relieve strain on your wrist. It will be more stiff in cold weather--need bigger loop. Pull the hose to the farthest corner of the lot first. Spray east and west on the way back. Alternate right turns with left turns. Look behind you frequently; keep the hose lying flat. Never more than one loop. Never step over the hose--this causes a twist--unless you step over to correct a twist. A sprayer with years of experience will never twist the hose and his reel always winds up neatly. It is Ok to use a tree as a pulley to go around a corner--but make sure it is strong--at least 4 inches diameter. Make a glove protector to guide the hose when winding it to the reel. Cut a plastic oil can or gallon jug in half. Allowing the hose to go through the spout of the bottle--which is cut in half.
