Landscaping

What does your backyard look like? More importantly, does it go well with a hot tub, aesthetically or practically? You should also consider how you plan to use your new outdoor spa. Is it just for you or are you planning to eventually throw hot tub parties?

Once you know what your plans are, it’s time to look at possible additions to your backyard. A practical approach might involve building your spa into a deck for simpler access. On the other hand, you might want to surround a hot tub intended for socializing with outdoor furniture, a fire pit, or more. Finally, a more intimate hot tub should be shielded by plants or a privacy screen so you can relax in comfort.

Appliances & Accessories

A hot tub on its own is already a fantastic addition to any house. But why stop there? Plenty of homeowners add other helpful appliances or accessories to the spa area for an even more luxurious experience. Add a wine cooler to keep drinks on hand, a waterproof speaker for music, a towel warmer for when it’s time to get out, or all of the above! Mix and match to create the perfect at-home spa day.

Pro Tip: Adding a cover lifter to your hot tub spares you from hauling the cover on and off every time you want to use it.

Turn Your Backyard into a Paradise!

Why settle for just a hot tub? Make your yard the ultimate relaxation haven with strategic landscaping, specialized accessories, and more!
