Spring Landscaping Tips for Your Hot Tub

The snow is melting, the birds are chirping, and the long-awaited springtime is finally here. Now’s the perfect time to set up your backyard for the tranquil oasis you’ll enjoy during the warmer weather. As you begin preparing your hot tub for the warmer seasons, we’ve put together some helpful spring landscaping tips for your hot tub and beyond to create your unique outdoor escape!

Spring Landscaping Starts with Therapeutic Themes 

The first thing you’ll want to do is pick your theme. What excites you? What relaxes you? The beautiful thing about landscaping is that it’s your chance to create a world all your own. Jungle fever? Longing for a secret garden? Whatever you choose will influence your decisions when it comes to adding plants and outdoor décor around your hot tub

Planting for Perfect Privacy 

The more you begin using your hot tub, the more you may want some privacy from neighbors and busy traffic. Tropical potted plants and trees help create a natural barrier between you and the outside world while still emulating that island resort look and feel. Or, perhaps a lattice with climbing ivy or roses is the perfect option for creating privacy and keeping with your quiet cottage atmosphere. Adding the right plants for privacy is one of the easiest ways to express your chosen theme and keep your outdoor oasis separate from the hustle and bustle of everyday stresses. 

Spring Landscaping for All-Natural Aromatherapy

While you’re choosing plants for your theme and privacy, don’t forget to consider their aromatic properties. Having the right plants in your landscaping around your hot tub can take your therapeutic hydrotherapy to new heights. Lavender, a stunning light purple flower, is famous for its stress-relieving scent. A simple planter full of luscious green herbs like rosemary, peppermint, and lemon balm help to give you a boost of energy — perfect for a springtime morning soak to start your day. 

Adding Accessories Around Your Hot Tub

Did you know that landscaping is more than moving dirt around? Adding some outdoor accessories for your convenience is a fantastic way to create a tranquil hot tubbing experience. For instance, a covered and protected storage area makes keeping towels nearby easy. Hanging lights from your tree branches or adding candles helps create a relaxing, intimate atmosphere for your evening soaks or get-togethers. Landscaping success is all about the details!

Simple Safety Features to Consider

There are a vast variety of options when it comes to adding safety to your hot tub for spring use that won’t take away from your theme or decorating style. Handrails make entering and exiting your hot tub safe and easy, and won’t distract from the beauty of the hot tub itself. Adding non-slip mats to high traffic areas help prevent accidents from wet feet and are hardly noticeable when you have other landscaping focal points to draw the attention.
