Outdoor Shower Ideas for Your Garden
The Bridge by Douches de jardins
The outdoor shower is a summer dream for many of us. Imagine waking up and going outside (in seclusion and privacy) and taking a shower 'pleine air'...
The image conjures up morning, brightness, serenity and refreshment...ahhhh....
You don't need much room but you will need some privacy fencing or dense plant screening.
Why not take the plunge? I am trying to figure out where to put one in my little yard. Here are a few ideas for you:
From Douches de jardins
This shower envelops the body in a gush of water.. The water tap is located at the shower’s rear base and connects directly to a garden hose or to a fixed installation. A hot water regulator allows mixing hot and cold water at the desired temperature. Looks like a lot of fun.
UNDER THE TREE
Under the Tree by Conmoto
An arching spray of water from a tree-like source. The tree's other branches are ideal for hanging towels and clothes. Designed by Michael Sieger, the Under the Tree garden shower is kept in place by a single ground spike and consists of two pieces for convenient storage and mobility.
THE PILOTIS IN A PINE STAND
A beautiful old fashioned style shower.....
This shower is made of northern pine half logs and works like a conventional shower. It has a large, 1/4 turn, chromed brass faucet. A hand-held shower head can be supplied as an option and can installed on a terrace or on a lawn. The water tap at the shower’s rear base connects directly to a garden hose.
SPRING HOUSE ECONOMY SHOWER
This is what I will get - an economical outdoor shower unit that comes with with or without a foot shower (to wash your feet). brass faucet body with lucite handles. Does the job and you can dress up the surroundings.
There are so many others out there.....Of course, being a landscape designer, I say that you should not forget the setting in which you place this marvelous addition. Set it within a garden of Ornmental Grasses, Rose of Sharon, boxwood, coreopsis.....
