Landscape for Hot Tubs and Spas
Landscaping options around your hot tub differ from the landscaping around your pool. Hot tubs are typically placed on a deck or some other raised surface. Hot tubs are more in line with an above ground swimming pool than an inground swimming pool, because of this, there is more to focus on when it comes to your landscaping design.
Universal Pool and Spa has all the answers you seek when it comes to the landscaping around your hot tub. Potted plants, flowers or shrubs are good decorating ideas. Tall ferns will look good on either side of the steps. Plants that are lower to the ground will look good around the rest of your structure. The ferns act as a frame and give your hot tub an exotic appeal when you enter. Ferns even look good around the perimeter of the hot tub when placed properly so the leaves don’t fall into the water.
If you plan on having your hot tub placed in a secluded area of your yard, you have provided yourself with privacy and are on your way to landscaping your hot tub into a grotto. If you choose an area that is surrounded by trees, you may want to consider a screened or open sided gazebo. Just make sure it has a roof to protect from falling leaves and other debris. If you choose a gazebo then you might want to consider hanging some flowering planters to fill the area with serene beauty and natural aroma.
Consider having us construct a small sand bar or rock wall around your hot tub. Incorporating a waterfall into the rock will add a touch of Feng-Shui and will enhance your relaxation. Adding a privacy screen in addition to the plants is also something good to consider.
