Build a garden shower yourself – great idea for the summer days
When setting up such a garden shower, the following aspects must be taken into account:
The material – you need a durable and hard material for the base and bottom of your garden shower. We recommend that you use Bangkirai for this purpose. Bangkirai is one of the toughest types of wood. As a natural material, it can be easily combined with the other garden elements. The boards made of Bangkirai wood are characterized by their particularly high stability and hardness. Another advantage of this material is that it is really very cheap. And using Bangkirai for the foundation of your DIY garden shower will save you a lot of money. It is no coincidence that stainless steel is one of the most popular materials for the shower and screws, because this material cannot rust. Stainless steel garden showers are more robust and look very nice.
In this case, white tiles were used for the foundation of the garden shower
Mobile or permanently installed garden shower? – Keep in mind that there are actually two types of garden showers: mobile and fixed garden showers. Both variants have their advantages and disadvantages.
Mobile garden showers – one of the advantages of these outdoor showers is that they are very easy and quick to assemble and disassemble. The mobile garden showers are usually attached to the ground with ground spikes. The mobile garden showers also include the solar garden showers and camping showers, in which the water is heated by the rays of the sun. In most cases, however, the mobile outdoor showers have a simple design. And if you feel like always having fresh water, you need a garden hose for this purpose. Mobile outdoor showers are easy to assemble and hardly take up any space.
Permanently installed outdoor showers – also a variant that you may like very much. In this case, the garden showers are permanently installed in one place. Unfortunately, they cannot be dismantled and they take a long time to build. In spite of this, the permanently installed garden showers also have many advantages: They have hot water and a variety of extras (such as massage jets and rainforest shower heads). A disadvantage of this variant: the outdoor showers should always be installed near the house and cannot be moved to another location at any time.

Privacy protection for your garden shower – of course, your garden shower should be equipped with various privacy protection elements. This is the only way to protect yourself from the prying eyes of your neighbors. If you are building the privacy screen for your outdoor shower yourself, you could use conventional materials that are available in every hardware store for this purpose. The walls made of gabions are particularly suitable as privacy screens for garden showers. The gabion walls are usually filled with natural stones, which can then be very easily decorated and embellished with various climbing plants (such as roses, wisteria and ivy). Another advantage of gabion walls is that they hardly need any maintenance after they have been set up. You can also just use privacy mats.
The bamboo sticks are also very inexpensive and could serve as privacy screens. As a natural material, bamboo is particularly suitable for protecting against prying eyes and contributes to a natural Asian atmosphere in the garden. If you choose walls made of bamboo rods, you will really relax while showering and experience a fresh feeling of wellness.
Using the hedge as a privacy screen – most garden owners will like this idea very much. The hedge also creates a natural atmosphere in the garden. Such a privacy screen can be combined very easily with the other garden elements and plants. For this purpose, you will need shrubs such as cherry laurel or privet – such types of plants are able to create opaque walls, and for this reason they are particularly suitable as privacy screens for garden showers. Such a hedge is easy to care for and looks really beautiful – this way you feel connected to nature when you shower. Nevertheless, this variant also has some disadvantages. Because it takes a while for the plants to reach the desired height – only in this case will the hedge perfectly fulfill its function as a privacy screen!

The trellises provide more elegance in the garden and facilitate the growth of the plants. But they are also a great alternative to classic privacy screens and can help your plants absorb more sunlight. The trellis are also easy to care for and can be decorated with a variety of climbing plants. A trellis with morning glories, ivy or roses looks romantic. In this case, too, you can shower in a natural environment and undisturbed. Another advantage of the trellis: In this way, your garden has a beautiful element that you would not even suspect that it is a privacy screen for your garden shower.
If you are looking for a durable and resilient privacy screen, we recommend that you opt for a privacy screen made of natural stone. Walls made of natural stone are opaque, easy to care for and appear more natural. But you will not make a mistake if you choose wood as the material for the privacy screen of your outdoor shower. Because the wood cladding is able to warm up in the sun. Wood stores the heat and then releases it to the environment.
