Backyard Ideas: From Simple to Ambitious
It’s all about relaxing when you’re buying a Jacuzzi® hot tub. So when you plan your backyard, deck or patio, keep in mind that beauty and simplicity will help you find that peaceful place.
Look for real-life backyard ideas among the photos in the Jacuzzi Customer Showcase. Be inspired by what you like. You’ll see spa ideas that are sleek and modern, with glass, marble and metal surroundings. Other backyard ideas are as warm as the wood decks and natural rock surrounds. Gazebos are charming backyard ideas that also bring protection from the elements. In many cases, verdant landscaping is part of the package. In warm, dry climates, backyard ideas often include xeriscaping, natural landscaping that reduces the use of water from irrigation.
For starters, good spa ideas begin with the hardscape. This includes the masonry, woodwork, patios and arbors, and the new hot tub itself. Think about your family’s needs and desires. Should the barbecue be nearby? And the location of your spa itself may influence its use. Tucked off in a far corner of the backyard, the hot tub is less convenient than near the back door; on the other hand, it could become your own cozy retreat.
Give some thought to privacy. Do you want neighbors looking in? Conversely, what’s the view from your hot tub, the line of sight? Do you need to keep an eye on the kids while you’re soaking? Sun, shade and prevailing wind should also fit into your backyard ideas.
A landscape architect can fuel your ambition and give you many more backyard ideas. But if you’re keeping it simple, cozy spa ideas can be as easy as a few planters and fresh cushions on the patio furniture.
