Hot Tub Landscaping Ideas for Your Backyard This Spring

Is it time to revamp your hot tub landscaping?

Once the snow has melted for good and the warmer weather is here to stay, many homeowners feel the urge to improve their backyard living space. This is especially true for those who own a Sundance® Spas hot tub.

In this article, we have listed some of the best hot tub landscaping ideas to help you bring your outdoor space to life this spring and summer.

5 Hot Tub Landscaping Ideas

1. Pathways

Enhance the style and safety of your backyard and hot tub installation with walkways and pathways. Create a functional path to and from your hot tub and the house to get the most out of your spa. Some homeowners choose to use stepping stones for a traditional look, while others create modern walkways with paver stones.

2. Colourful Gardens

What better way to enhance your spa installation than with a beautiful flower garden? Include a variety of green plants and colourful flowers for a balanced look, then cover the soil with a dark mulch to complete the garden. You may even want to take it a step further and include plants that repel insects, such as citronella grass.

3. Built-In Look

Does your hot tub look like it was an afterthought in your backyard design? By creating a built-in look, you can make it appear as though the hot tub was always meant to be there. If you have a wooden deck, you may want to consider building a wooden surround or simply installing it directly into the deck. In the case that your backyard does not have a deck, you may choose to build your surround with either stone or wood, based on your personal preference.

The final touches can include a matching gazebo, hot tub cover, and steps. To get some ideas, take a look at our online hot tub installation gallery.

4. Water and Fire Features

Your hot tub retreat should be all about relaxation. What better way to create an area just for health and wellness, than with the addition of water and fire features? The sounds of a crackling fire or trickling water can help to improve the atmosphere of your outdoor space, while at the same time improving the overall aesthetic.

Consider adding one of the following features to your hot tub landscaping:

  • Waterfall
  • Water fountain
  • Fire pit
  • Fire table
  • Fireplace

These features can also help to improve the functionality and enjoyment of your backyard, by providing additional illumination and creating more lounge spaces.

5. Extended Deck and Patio Area

Make your hot tub landscaping more functional by extending your deck or patio area this spring. This can provide better access to and from your spa, bring lounge areas closer to the hot tub for a more inclusive feel and maximize the available space in your backyard. The better access you have to your spa, the more you’ll be able to enjoy the luxurious hot tub features and incredible benefits.
