Whilst an almost ubiquitous sight in luxury homes around the world, it is surprisingly rare to see a Jacuzzi taken out of hot tub storage and set up outdoors to create an outdoor spa paradise.
Part of the reason for this is that the weather in the UK is far more variable and prone to sudden changes than in other parts of the world such as Australia and countries close to the equator.
The other part is that due to the functional nature and appearance of a hot tub, it is difficult to make it harmonise aesthetically with many types of garden design.
However, it is not impossible, and with that in mind, here are some ways to keep your garden looking great and having the benefits of a hot tub as well.
Invest In A Spa Cover
Typically, the aesthetic issue with a hot tub is not when it is in use, but when it is out of season and it is being protected. By default, it will have a vinyl cover or a tarpaulin thrown on top of it, which in an otherwise natural-looking garden can look unsightly and out of place.
Instead, spend the money on a cover that looks fantastic and completes the look of a home. If you already have a hot tub deck, design it with a matching cover that can slide underneath, adding convenient sun lounging space when not in use
Reduce Its Exposure
By either moving it to a corner of your garden or by investing in pool-side plants, you can make your hot tub as natural an addition to your garden as a pond or water feature.
There are a lot of options here, but the key is to help the hot tub blend in, providing the luxury benefit of an outdoor tub but without detracting from the rest of a garden’s design.
