In order to maximize your enjoyment of a home spa, it’s important to map out the perfect location for installation.
While you might be drawn to more wooded, secluded zones of your property in order to play up the tranquility and privacy you envision, you also need to think more practically, particularly if you live in colder climates.
That means ensuring you keep your hot tub close enough to your home to ensure easy in and out access all year-round.
Some of the most important factors you should consider when finding the perfect home for your hot tub include:
Is Your Spa the Centrepiece of Your Yard?
One option is to make the hot tub the centrepiece of your backyard, and add landscaping around it. If you already have mature gardens and vegetation, a better option might be to have the hot tub secondary and blend it into the existing landscaping elements. Both methods will create magnificent installations, so long as you remember to find an area where the hot tub can be properly maintained.
Convenience vs. Privacy
Find a space that will provide a level of privacy for you and your fellow users away from neighbours. As well, hot tubs, and their use among social groups, create a level of noise so be sure to respect this in planning the proper location. If you live in a tightly populated area, create privacy solutions with fencing and screens that incorporate natural elements – such as bamboo.
While you want your installation to create enough privacy to really enjoy your home spa experience, you also need to ensure that it’s close enough to your home to allow easy access as well as continued maintenance.
Exposure to Sunlight & The Natural Elements
If sunlight is something you crave, be sure to look at where in your yard you get the best natural exposure. If you want shade in your Beachcomber, be aware of any potential debris that could be damaging to the hot tub. Try not to place it directly under a large tree where needles or branches could come down and cause persistent issues.
Also be sure to check into local permits and regulations surrounding your property. These could impact placement within your yard, allowable noise levels, or other potential factors that may cause you to change the location of your hot tub.
But remember, choosing the right location for your Beachcomber hot tub is an important decision to make – and not one to make lightly. So take time to select the ideal spot that provides adequate support, shelter, and access to ensure that your new Beachcomber installation is the backyard oasis that you always dreamed it would be.
