    Try spraying the points of attachment with silicone spray. Wait 10 minutes, then place a small towel over the attachment point and try turning the hose end fitting with an adjustable wrench.

    Channel lock pliers would probably do the trick for you.

    Make sure you’ve turned the water off and remove whatever you have on the other end, sprinkler, spray nozzle...then take an adjustable wrench aka crescent wrench or my favorite for all things plumbing - tongue and groove wrench aka plumbers wrench aka water pump pliers and turn the female fitting on the hose, not the faucet aka hose bib. It’s probably just air locked. Remember lefty loosey, righty tighty for most things
