You might be labouring under the misconception that a small garden means that your dreams of a pool need to be forgotten, but we are here today to tell you that you really CAN enjoy a touch of luxury! A mini-pool is a wonderful way to get the benefits of a swimming pool, even in a tiny garden, so if you have a few square feet to play with, a landscape architect that loves a challenge and a moderate budget, come with us now to see the small pools that could be the answers to your prayers!

1. A touch of luxury.

Would you just look at the levels of luxury that this mini-pool is giving access to! Wow! Just because a pool is small, it really doesn't mean that it has to be basic and what we love about this design particularly, is that it is so much more than just a water feature; it's a complete mini-pool terrace! Gorgeous!

2. Flexible and fun.

If you want the freedom of having a pool in the warmer months and more garden space the rest of the time, a flexible option is definitely the right choice for you! Above-ground pools don't have to be seen as the less luxurious cousin of submerged designs, we actually just see them as the ultimate in practicality and family fun!

3. Year-round refreshment.

With a depth of 1.35m, what this mini-pool lacks in length, it certainly makes up for in depth! Ideal for simply submerging into, when the weather gets a little too hot, this plunge pool, complete with stylish LED lighting, makes a real statement in the garden. You could even add some water jets as well!

4. Specifically social.

This mini-pool is a very special installation, as it is found in the southern Californian Mojave Desert and is an art project! The creator, Alfredo Barsuglia, wanted to add a surprising element to a dry and dusty space and we think it shows that literally ANY space can play home to a mini-pool!

5. Perfect for athletes.

If you aren't in the market for a mini-pool garden addition, how about something small and under cover, like this amazing training version? With high-powered water jets to swim against, this is the ideal choice for any athletes that need to train regularly, but don;t have the luxury of a garden large enough to house an olympic pool. Seriously clever stuff!

6. All about relaxation.

You might not be able to swim a few lengths in this pool, but you will be able to sink in and enjoy the restorative bubble jets! With integrated bench seats, this is a sociable design that needs so little space, we could see something similar, though above-ground, working in terms of a mini-pool for a balcony. You see? You might not even need a garden at all!
