Backyard Landscaping your Hot Tub Area

Whether you use your hot tub solely for relaxation, or as the focal point of social interaction, a hot tub is an excellent addition to your backyard. Instead of having your spa stick out like it doesn’t belong, spruce up your yard with these backyard landscaping ideas to complement your hot tub area.

Hot Tub Placement

Before you consider which plants and flowers to create an amazing backyard, you have to choose the right place for your hot tub. Consider what the hot tub will be used for. Is it mainly for entertainment purposes, or a relaxing, private retreat? Also, try to avoid leaving all four sides of your hot tub exposed. Instead, use existing walls or fences to hide one side, and then use landscaping designs to create the ambiance you want.

Create Privacy With Landscaping

The best way to create privacy around your outdoor hot tub is with landscaping. Shorter trees or shrubs with dense foliage can create the perfect barrier between you and peeping eyes. Another good way to create privacy is to think vertical! Grow flowering vines along a pergola or arbor is another way to give you shade and the perfect hot tub hideaway.

Pick the Right Plants

Choosing the right plants is important to think about when adding landscaping around your hot tub or spa. There are some plants you want to avoid, such as plants with thorns, or plants that require too much upkeep and will drop leaves or make a mess in your hot tub. Consider plants in decorative pots or hanging baskets to add seasonal color and make sure to choose flowers with a nice scent to help relax your mind while floating your cares away in your hot tub.

A Backyard Theme

Creating a theme for your backyard landscaping is always a great idea! You can choose plants to fit your themes, such as a tropical theme with foliage like palms, flowering vines, and orchids. Or, go for a more formal theme with manicured topiary, classic garden art, and flowers in decorative pots and vases.
