Create the Backyard of Your Dreams With a New Hot Tub

Most of us are spending more time at home these days, whether due to self-quarantine, practicing safe social distancing, or a new work-from-home arrangement. While there certainly are worse places to have to spend most of your time, after awhile, staying at home can get pretty boring. That is, unless you have a backyard oasis that you never want to leave! In today’s post from your neighborhood hot tub store, Spa Max, we’re going to talk about how easy it is to create the backyard of your dreams. Keep reading, and if you can’t wait to get started, visit our website or stop by our store.

Start With a Plan

Before you run out and start buying new things for your backyard, it’s wise to do a little planning. First, think about what the perfect backyard means to you. It’s different for everyone. Do you want a secluded, peaceful retreat, or would you rather have the perfect setup for huge neighborhood parties? (Once it is safe to do so, of course).

Think about what you love most about going to your backyard — do you love to grill delicious dinners and eat outside with your family, or do you enjoy digging in the dirt and creating a beautiful, lush garden? Also, take some measurements and make a sketch of what you envision it looking like. Measurements are important because it can be easy to get carried away and purchase a SuperPool for your yard when all you can fit is a medium-sized hot tub. Having a plan and a note on the dimensions you have to work with can be a big help when you’re at the hot tub store or nursery. 

Every Backyard Needs a Hot Tub

Whether you love gardening or grilling, partying, or seclusion, there’s one thing that pretty much everyone can agree upon — a hot tub! Having a steamy, bubbly bath to soak in is perfect for relaxing tense muscles, relieving pain, and just forgetting the stresses of the day. Choose a smaller hot tub if you’re planning to use your backyard as a private retreat. For those who love to throw a party or want to have the entire family over more often, go big and get a hot tub that can fit everyone — and then some. The point is, no matter how you decide to use the rest of your yard, you can’t go wrong with a hot tub. 

Add Some Natural Beauty

There’s just something about being out in nature that makes you feel at peace. And, if you want to duplicate that feeling right in your own backyard, you have to accent it with natural elements. Flowers, trees, rock gardens, fire pits — these are all great ideas for enhancing your backyard refuge.  

To reduce the amount of time you’ll have to spend maintaining your yard, consider planting perennial flowers that come up every year. If you have grass, consider removing some of it and replacing it with rock. Not only will it be zero maintenance, you’ll also save on your water bill. 

Enhance Your Privacy

Even if you love to be the life of the party or plan on having people over often, it’s still a good idea to consider some privacy enhancing features. At some point you’ll want to take a dip in your hot tub, without the curious next door neighbor watching your every move. Maybe you’ve had a particularly stressful day and all you want to do is melt into your spa, without having to see or talk to anyone. At times like these, you’ll be happy you considered planning for privacy.

You have several options when it comes to privacy — you could enclose your hot tub in a gazebo, build some privacy fencing, or even create a natural wall with trellises and vines.  You could also plant some well-placed bushes or trees. However you decide to do it, adding some privacy features will only make your backyard feel that much more cozy.

Don’t Forget the Mood Lighting

Once you create the backyard of your dreams, you’ll want to spend as much time in it as possible. Make sure you can extend your stay long after the sun has gone down by installing various forms of lighting. Landscape lighting can help to light your walking path so you can see where you’re going and string lights are always a fun and easy way to create a romantic atmosphere.
