Your backyard is the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee, a game of catch with the kids or an evening of stargazing– and that's never been more true than right now. With travel plans on hold and many of our usual activities suspended, the backyard has become the “go-to” leisure destination. With so much time spent hanging out at home, you might be looking for ways to make your backyard or deck more comfortable and appealing.
So, where to start? If you're a Hot Spring® spa owner, you're in luck! Our hot tubs feature modern cabinet designs and gorgeous, nature-inspired color schemes, with sparkling water features and colorful mood lighting. Just add some landscaping and a few accessories, and you'll be well on your way to creating a stunning backyard focal point.
Need inspiration? We've put together some backyard hot tub ideas for you:
Warm up with a small, satisfying task.
Chances are there's at least one area of your backyard that could benefit from some TLC. Don't put small projects off. Repainting or replacing old patio furniture, replanting flower beds, or simply finding a way to neatly store spa chemicals and gardening supplies are all quick, easy fixes. You'll feel great when your project is done - and you'll enjoy a better view from your hot tub.
Consider your Surroundings.
Next time you're soaking in your hot tub, look around and think about how you might improve the experience. Is there something blocking your view of the mountains or stars? A simple tree trimming can clear the way, allowing you to fully enjoy the beauty of nature. If it's privacy you're seeking, strategically placed shrubs, a canopy, or a pergola can provide both shade and the coverage you need to fully enjoy your outdoor oasis. Installing a backyard fountain provides zen-like ambiance, and helps block noise too – the flowing water will muffle the sound of dogs barking and passing cars.
Small touches make a big difference.
Inside and out, accessories are the easiest way to bring a splash of color and add personality to your space. Give existing patio furniture a fresh new look with colorful throws and pillows and add natural accents like decorative rocks and potted plants. Scented candles or string lights are an affordable way to add a lovely glow. For a more custom touch, your Hot Spring dealer offers a range of Necessories® to enhance your spa experience. From the perfect spa-side umbrella, color-coordinated steps, sturdy handrails, and handy towel racks, our Necessories deliver safety and convenience.
Design to enhance any space.
Above-ground hot tubs provide you with options when designing your outdoor space. You might position it so that you can enjoy a beautiful view, in a secluded corner for privacy, or close to a back door for easy access. You can check out the many ways Hot Spring owners have used decking, plants, and furnishings to create their personal backyard paradise. Whether your backyard is small or large, you'll find designs to inspire you on our blog, or on the Owners Corner of our Pinterest page.
