How to Decorate a Garden Tub

A garden tub is a great way to add beauty and tranquility to your backyard. It’s also a wonderful place for you and your family or friends to relax on hot summer days. You’ll want to make sure that the rest of your backyard is decorated nicely, too! In this post, we will go over different ways of how to decorate a garden tub so it looks gorgeous year-round.

How To Decorate A Garden Tub

Material You’ll Need:

  • A garden tub
  • Plants
  • Flowers
  • Decorative Pillows or Furniture
  • Candles or String Lights
  • Wall Hangings
  • Outdoor Rugs or Carpet

Steps To Follow: How to Decorate a Garden Tub

Step One:

Add plants. You can buy flowers and set them in the tub, but it will only last for so long before they need water again! Plants are much better because you don’t have to worry about watering them very often and they will last for months.

Step Two:

Add flowers. It is a good idea to buy some of the same types of flower so that it looks nice together, but you can mix different types as well! Some plants are better at blooming in the certain seasons-for example, tulips only bloom in spring-so make sure you purchase those accordingly if this style fits your theme best.

Step Three:

Hang wall hangings from inside or outside of the tub. This really makes any space more inviting and homey without much effort on your part! In order to do this safely, use hooks screwed into studs near where you want them hung instead of nails which could make accidental holes in walls when removed later on down the line.

Step Four:

Add candles (or other light sources) to the bath. They are a nice touch, but not necessary. It is best if you use something that won’t leak and create an ecological hazard!

Step Five:

Fill your tub with water so it looks inviting! This just takes about five minutes of patience while waiting for the water to fill up-it can be done during any step in this list, really!

How to Make Your Garden Tub Look Gorgeous for All the Seasons:

In the winter, a great way to decorate your garden tub is with trees or bushes that have berries. They can be planted near the water feature and then decorated with Christmas lights so they are illuminated during December!

  • Plant some flowers such as tulips in early spring for a burst of color when you need it most. You can also use this time to plant bulbs if you want them to grow year after year.
  • Make sure there’s plenty of seating available so people don’t get wet from sitting on their towels once they’re done relaxing in the bathtub. A bench could work well here! If there isn’t enough space outdoors, try adding an outdoor sink nearby instead.
  • In the summertime, go ahead and add ice-cold drinks and towels in this area for a refreshing way to wind down after a long day of play.

Some Tips for Decorating your Garden Tub:

Tip 1:

Make sure to place some plants around the tub. This will create a beautiful and natural décor that also helps add oxygen into the atmosphere which is good for you. You’ll want to invest in flowers as well, but make sure they are safe if you are using a hot tub.

Tip 2:

Keep in mind that you might want to use some plants with short, lush leaves since they will not be submerged underwater and could create an ecological hazard if the wrong plant was used.

Tip 3:

Place some flowers around your garden bathtub as well! Flowers add beauty and upkeep is minimal for them because of how low maintenance they tend to be. You can also buy petals, which only require water so there is no waste at all when it comes time for cleaning up after yourself!

Tip 4:

Add candles (or other light sources) to the bath. They are a nice touch, but not necessary. It is best if you use something that won’t leak and create an ecological hazard! So make sure they are battery-powered or oil lamps.

Tip 5:

Another idea is to use some stones in your garden bathtub when decorating it! This can be done by placing the rocks around the outside of the hot tub, inside it as a part of an upscaled waterfall feature, or even add them on top of plants that have been placed for decoration purposes. Either way will create different looks and feels within your space.

Note: You’ll want to make sure that you buy plants and flowers in different sizes. This will help give your garden tub a more natural feel!


There are a number of ways to decorate your garden tub with the goal being to make it feel like an extension of your backyard.

These include placing plants, rocks, or other decorative items in and around the tub; installing a water fountain nearby; and adding outdoor furniture such as chairs, tables, benches, chaise lounges, or hammocks that can be placed right next to the tub for relaxation.
