Turn Your Backyard into a Hot Tub Oasis
Why go to a spa when you can have a spa come to you? Designing
a hot tub environment in your backyard should be a perfect blend
of lighting, plants, fences, pavement, structures, and finally
the hot tub itself.
Although designing your area may at first be intimidating, when
done right, it can be a very rewarding experience that not only
reflects your personal tastes but also accommodates your needs.
When planning a spa, Jacuzzi® recommends that you keep a
few elements in mind. Here are some suggestions that will help
you tackle specific areas.
The Hot Tub:
A good way to begin is with the hot tub itself. Choose your
tub on the number of people it will need to accommodate and the
features it offers. For example, do you want a spa that fits two
people comfortably or six? Do you want a waterfall for white noise
or are you placing the spa in an extremely quiet area?
Often spas are surrounded by a symmetrical or free-form deck.
This deck provides not only a frame for the spa, but also a safe
walkway around its edge. A good decking material matches other
paved areas, is resistant to acid, algae, bacteria, chemicals,
frost and fungus, and should feel cool under your feet. In addition,
the deck surface should not be slippery.
Nature is the best healer, and what's more natural than plants?
Plants provide just the right texture, shape, color and interest
for your spa landscape. A well-placed tree, hedge, or vine will
provide privacy and security by hiding any unwanted views and
creating a peaceful cocoon around your spa.
They also discourage trespassing and soften any architectural
lines, camouflage pool equipment, and fill in odd angles or spaces
in the area. Plants should be chosen keeping in mind their function
and their suitability to the climate zone.
Light changes everything you look at, and your hot tub is no
different. Lighting can dramatically alter your outdoor area in
the evening by highlighting all the right architectural features
and background foliage.
A good lighting plan may need some experimentation before you
get it absolutely right. It can be fun to try out inexpensive
clamp-on lights and observe the results, and then get them installed
permanently by a professional.
Jacuzzi understands the importance of light in the spa area and
offers color-lighted Water Rainbow® waterfalls, which are
a perfect way to set the mood after dark. Some models feature
underwater lighting which can be set to one color or set to automatically
cycle through an array of colors to fit any mood.
Adding a Jacuzzi hot tub to your outdoor space means investing
a little time and effort into something that will return your
efforts over and over again. So step in for a soak and experience
what it feels like to have your environment runneth over...
