Welcome to the hot tub club! Many relaxing soaks await your future as a Marquis® hot tub owner. But before you can climb in, you have the exciting task of landscaping and decorating your spa area. Read on for some hot tub landscaping tips for your Marquis spa.
Put Your Hot Tub in the Right Spot
First, consider where in your available space you would like to place your hot tub. Do you want your hot tub to be the focus of your space or a feature? You can create your backyard around your hot tub and make it a fabulous focus of the whole area. Or, you can fit your hot tub in a corner or cranny or side of your yard, and build other features in the remaining space.
Wherever you put it, make sure you don’t block the hot tub’s service access panel with something you can’t move. If your hot tub needs service, you don’t want to have to dig up a tree to get to the access panel. You might also consider locating your spa in a spot near the house, so you have a short trip to the hot tub in those cold months of winter in Idaho.
Give Your Spa A Strong Foundation
Now that you know where you want to place your hot tub, ensure that it sits on a solid surface. Grass, dirt, or even mulch are too soft and can’t support the weight of a full hot tub. Sufficient landscaping options for beneath your hot tub include concrete, specially laid gravel, or a sturdy deck or patio. Once you have a strong spa foundation in place, it’s time to decorate!
Get Creative with Your Hot Tub Privacy
Next, create privacy around your Marquis hot tub while adding to your desired ambience. Planted or potted trees or shaped bushes transport you to a secret garden spa. Being in a hot tub surrounded by nature just feels so right.
Folding privacy screens come in all sorts of prints and colors to match any patio theme. A pergola or ventilated canopy can provide the most privacy. Just draw the curtains, and you can’t even be seen from the sky!
Complete Your Hot Tub Landscaping with Furniture and Fixtures
Furthermore, filling out your spa area with a sitting area maximizes your entertainment options. Pair your patio furniture with a table or island that can support drinks, hot tub friendly snacks, and candles for date night. A decorative basket or bucket keeps extra towels and magazines nearby and dry. Adorn your spa patio with potted flowers, cactuses, or succulents, decorative pottery, and big pillows in patterns that make you happy.
