There’s nothing quite like the pure bliss you can experience while relaxing in a hot tub.
Regardless if you’re letting your mind unwind at the end of a long day, or enjoying quality time with loved ones, a spa can create a more refreshing environment to spend your free time. You can take your hot tub experience to the next level with a complete backyard installation. You can include a variety of accessories, features, and landscaping techniques, while planning a hot tub installation, to make it more functional and aesthetically-pleasing. One aspect you might want to keep in mind is privacy. If creating a more private and intimate environment will improve the atmosphere of your backyard, check out these 4 helpful tips and tricks! It can be easy to incorporate privacy into your hot tub installation planning.
1. Build Around Your Hot Tub
You can enhance the privacy of your hot tub with the use of buildings and structures. Installing your hot tub along the side of your home can provide privacy with the use of the building, leaving several sides to privatize using other elements. If you plan on installing your hot tub away from your home, simply bring a structure to your spa!
You can enhance the privacy of your Sundance® Spa with the help of a pergola, gazebo, or privacy enclosure. These are all structures that surround your spa with tall beams, paneling, and even curtains to improve privacy. These structures can also increase the functionality of your backyard and hot tub experience. You can utilize these structures to store things outside, or keep personal items like drinks, towels, or mobile devices in them. Keeping the ground free of clutter can help improve the aesthetic of your backyard while creating a safer environment.
2. Plants, Gardens and Other Outdoor Greenery
You can improve the privacy of your backyard even further with a variety of outdoor plants. A combination of flowers, bushes, shrubs, and trees can create a more intimate environment while boosting the natural appeal of your backyard. Tall shrubs and trees can help form your hot tub enclosure because of their height and width. Not only will you have more privacy, but outdoor wildlife might even be more compelled to visit your backyard. What better way to enjoy your backyard retreat than with the relaxing company of birds, squirrels, rabbits, and butterflies!
Chain link fences and garden trellises can be dressed-up with climbing greenery. Certain flowers and vines can intertwine through these structures to create a more natural and enclosed environment. You can try planting a variety of climbing greenery, including:
- Climbing roses
Greenery can also accessorize your backyard. Placing potted plants throughout your backyard can add boosts of color, scents, and more natural elements to your backyard, while enhancing the overall privacy.
3. Increase Privacy with a Fence
Have you thought about installing your hot tub alongside a pre-existing fence?
Placing your hot tub beside a fence, or in the corner where two fences meet, can provide more seclusion for one or multiple sides of your spa. If you have a chain link fence, try including climbing greenery as mentioned above. Climbing greenery can help fill in the holes between the fence links and improve the overall privacy of your backyard.
If you only have one side you would like to cover, you can build a privacy fence beside your hot tub. A privacy fence can have multiple purposes aside from a more private backyard hot tub. It can help improve the balance and flow in your backyard by creating separation, or even provide a great opportunity for a new landscaping adventure. Try including new walkways, gardens, or patio areas!
4. Invest in a Privacy Screen
A pre-built privacy screen is a quick and simple solution. These screens can easily be placed around your spa before you and your loved ones get in. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles, so you can ensure that it matches the rest of your backyard. Although privacy screens are portable and stylish, they’re usually a more temporary solution. If the weather is going to be particularly windy or harsh, be sure to store your privacy screen away safely.
