Water splash forFaucet on outside of house

Wanting some suggestions:

The faucet for my garden hose on the outside of my house has nothing underneath it to keep from making a mud puddle and it drives me nuts. It's on a side of my house that is heavily shaded by trees, so there isn't much grass under it and every time I turn it on, I have to deal with making a mud puddle. I thought about pouring a small slab of concrete, or putting down rock.
Any thoughts on a good, cheap idea?

You might set a plastic bucket filled with rocks under it. Poke some small holes in the bucket so that it slowly drains.

You could dig a hole and fill it with hardwood mulch to hold the water as it percolates into the surrounding soil.

You could put a cheap astro-turf mat under it to break up the splash and let the water run off.

Hope this helps.
