If you just got a hot tub or are thinking about buying one, then you are probably wondering how to integrate it into your backyard. An accessory as large as a hot tub can really bring together your backyard experience if done well, but it can also make it look terrible if done poorly.
Paradise Valley Spas has been helping people all over the bay area for 30 years find the perfect way to integrate a hot tub into a backyard. We even have a look book of different ideas for customers, and photos of different installations we have done over the years. Here are our 5 best ways to integrate your hot tub into your backyard:
- Place it strategically: The best positions to place your hot tub are up against walls, bushes or plants, or surrounded by something. Placing your hot tub up against a wall or other location in your backyard integrates the tub into the natural layout and landscape of the backyard.
- Build an outdoor room or space around the hot tub: If you can put a gazebo of some type around the hot tub, it creates a designated space for the hot tub. Chairs and small tables can also be integrated in an area like this and it makes it more of a place of relaxation in the backyard. This is a great idea for anyone looking to make the hot tub a center piece for their backyard.
- Create an in ground or multi tiered surface for the tub: Placing the hot tub in the ground usually makes the hot tub less noticed, and leaves more space above ground in the backyard for other accessories. Another option is to create a multi tiered surface. To describe how this would look, if the hot tub were placed on the lower area in the backyard, the top surface of the hot tub would look flush with the upper deck or area.
- Plant bushes, flowers, and trees all around the tub: By planting all around the tub, the hot tub area can be turned into its own sanctuary. If the plants are tall and fully enclose the hot tub then it can create an isolated feeling, which is perfect for ultimate relaxation.
- Make the installation area’s ground material different: if your backyard is just one or two materials, then create a contrasting area for the hot tub. For instance, if your backyard is covered in grass, then create a square area made of stone designated for the hot tub. Placing the hot tub in the middle of the backyard in a designated area like this will still look great without walls or surrounding plants.
