The heat is on so grab yourself a garden hot tub

Water relief: Take a dip at home

HOT tubs have been one of the unexpected winners of the coronavirus pandemic with online waiting lists as long as your arm.

Lay-Z-Spa has been forced to temporarily stop accepting new orders and operate a queuing system to get on their website, while Lidl has a £299 inflatable version that triggers (socially distanced) queues around the block every time it comes in stock.

Featuring dynamic air jets that transform the tub into a massage-friendly whirlpool, Lidl’s much-desired effort comes with everything you need to get lovely and bubbly in your garden.

Another garden trend is the adult paddling pool. Yes, you read that right. Leading the way is US brand Mylle, which has created ‘pools designed to fit your environment, not the colour catalogue of your childhood’.

Designed for ‘those of us with city rooftops and tiny yards’, they’re made of heavyweight vinyl. But, of course, Mylle’s main draw is its chic colour palette. You can choose from a terrazzo pattern, army green, ochre flecked or checks. Get cool this summer!
