If you’re looking to add new life to your swimming pool or hot tub, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of ideas to take both your pool and hot tub installation to new heights. Let’s take a look at the best ways to enhance your pool or spa this spring.
1. Natural Privacy
Unless you live in the country with no nearby neighbors, privacy is likely an issue. Who wants their neighbors gawking at them while swimming or soaking in the hot tub?
Luckily, there’s an easy and natural fix for that: vegetation. Whether you choose a traditional boxwood hedge, a row of evergreen trees or to plant bamboo or ornamental grasses, this beautiful greenery will afford you the privacy you want while adding freshness to your landscape.
2. Get Romantic
Why not make your backyard a romantic getaway for you and your partner? Nothing adds romance quite like creeping plants and vines. Not only do they soften building materials, but they also add lushness to your surroundings. Try planting phlox to fill in a rock garden or stone border.
Have boring stone or wood walls? Try planting some ivy or Virginia creeper. Not only do these plants spread quickly, but they’ll also cling to your wall without any help. Other beautiful choices like honeysuckle or clematis will need a framework, such as a trellis, to grow on.
You can also add some hanging pots and ground urns or baskets to the area surrounding your pool or spa. Hang baskets of impatiens, pansies, verbena, or begonias from your veranda, covered deck, gazebo, or pergola. Climbing hydrangea can be added to large urns and will grow up the sides of your pergola, arbor, or trellis as will morning glories.
3. Shine a Light On It
Speaking of romance, nothing adds to the atmosphere of your backyard quite like string lighting. Hanging weatherproof string lights near your pool or hot tub not only adds to the ambiance and beauty of those areas but also ensures you’ll be able to use them no matter what the weather. You can hang the lights from nearby trees, from a deck railing, pergola, or gazebo, and even from the stucco, wood, or brick walls of your home.
You can hang straight, uniform strings or create a unique pattern with your lights depending on your preference.
4. Get Geometric
If you have a lot of lawn space near your pool or spa, then your yard is the ideal place to create a whimsical and eye-catching checkerboard. To create this pattern, pavers are alternated with grass. To get the look, pavers are positioned along a string line spaced a foot-and-a-half to two feet apart. Once the lawn is dug up in the right places to accommodate the pavers, they are secured to the ground with a mixture of cement and brickie’s sand.
Not only is this look unique, it makes the perfect base for loungers poolside or for a garden bench on the side of your spa.
