Once you have one of our Hot Spring Spas hot tubs with the massaging jets, water features, and mood lighting, you’re well on your way.
Now it’s time to add some landscaping and a few accessories for the perfect backyard. Let’s look at how:
#1: Start Small
One easy and often inexpensive way is to start small.
First, take a look around your backyard. Pick a small area where you can dedicate some tender loving care. It may be repainting or replacing old patio furniture. Or, it could be replanting your flower beds. Planting flowers is a simple backyard project that adds beauty and color to your backyard or deck.
For this first project, pick one that’s small and easily attainable. It will energize you to take on bigger ones in the future.
#2: Look Around You
This one involves actually getting into your hot tub. Once in, take a look around and see what you can do to make your experience better.
For example, is there a tree blocking your view? Is there a bush hanging uncomfortably around the hot tub? Do you lack privacy? If so, some strategically placed bushes can help.
You may find the traffic is loud around your backyard. Consider installing a backyard fountain for a zen-like ambiance.
Don’t forget to add some lanterns or hanging lights for added atmosphere during the evening.
#3: Add Accessories
Another one of our hot tub landscaping ideas, is accessories. Accessories are the easiest way to add a splash of color indoors and out.
For example, add some flowers in pots around your hot tub for color. Or, paint your existing patio furniture for a fresh new look. Or, add some colorful pillows or throws on your chair or sofa.
Finally, consider a spa-side umbrella for color and shade.
#4: Enhance Any Spa
The placement of your spa is vital to how much you’ll use and enjoy it.
When placing your spa, make sure to put it so you have a great view. Consider a secluded corner for privacy or close to the back door for easy access.
Whatever you do, though, make sure to add decking or a pretty patio, plants and furnishings to create your backyard paradise.
