Small country-style bathing garden

When the client steps out of one of the large windows in the living room into her garden, her personal little oasis of well-being opens up. The comparatively small area makes the new bathing garden all the more cozy.

The garden before & after

A sand-colored pool for relaxation

In this bathing garden, the client can expect a sand-colored pool that promises pure relaxation. Despite the limited size of the garden, the client's wish for a swimming pool was fulfilled. A prefabricated pool with a sand-colored liner was chosen to create a vacation ambience that blends in perfectly with the surroundings. The previous reddish-brown area for sunbathing was removed and replaced with a light-colored deck. There are now two comfortable sun loungers between the swimming pool and the house, which are regularly used by customers for relaxing hours by the water.

The front part of the bathing garden is separated from the neighborhood by a half-height frosted glass privacy screen. This low height does not impair the view, but visually enlarges the outdoor space and at the same time ensures privacy. There was previously a hedge on the left-hand side of the pool, which has now been replaced by a white fence in the American country house style. The same fence is repeated on the other side of the garden. The fence not only contributes to privacy, but also harmonizes perfectly with the light-coloured materials in its surroundings.

Seamless transition from indoor to outdoor space

A seamless transition from the interior to the exterior was a key wish of the client. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room offer an uninterrupted view of the garden. To pick up on the light-colored material in the living room, light-colored materials were also used for the terrace design.

There is a large dining table on the terrace, which offers enough space for the whole family. On warm summer days in particular, the owners enjoy ending the day here together over dinner. Guests can also be pampered here, as the barbecue is located nearby.

Small accents by means of planting

To make the best possible use of the limited space, a generous lawn was planned. This helps to visually enlarge the outdoor living room and allows the view to flow freely. On the right-hand side of the garden is the same country house fence as on the left-hand side. Small shrubs have been planted underneath it to further soften the surroundings.

Plants were also placed in matching containers in the bathing garden and on the terrace to create small accents. This creates new visual relationships throughout the feel-good oasis.

With its sand-colored pool and light-colored materials, this small bathing garden creates a summery vacation feeling. From now on, the owners can enjoy their hot summer days in their own bathing paradise.
