An Utterly Exhaustive Outdoor Shower Roundup

The Heat!! The Heat!! — I melt just walking to the veg patch.  I can’t get my work boots on because I (stupidly) walked barefoot across my asphalt driveway and burnt the bottoms so badly that I even have a blister and two days and many Epsom salt baths later, they still ache.

I have been thinking about a better way to manage all the sorts of dirty but re-usable beach towels that end up draped across our cars so they can dry out.  Perhaps a garden feature of sorts?  But the heat also has me thinking that an outdoor shower would be lovely.  It is a place where the little people can shower off the beach sand.  Where I can wash my dirty gardening self before going inside and on a hot day, we can all cool down.

I have collected over 30 (31 to be precise) images of beautiful outdoor showers for our inspiration.  Each has something great ideas to borrow and re-create in your own garden.  (Click on the images above to see them bigger).  I wish mine were already in place — I think I am going to need it this weekend…I am finishing my cobblestone patio and starting on painting the house…and the heat is still on.  Are you working the garden this weekend? What are you creating?

    Nice collection of showers. There’s something quite wonderful about an outdoor shower. I have a shower under a trellis covered with Wisteria floribunda. It’s rather messy, but so nice when the wisteria is blooming, you feel like you are showering with flower petals.

    These would go brilliantly with a natural pool. If anyone offers this type of product I’d love to offer it on our site
