A hot tub is a must-have for any homeowner looking to create an oasis for relaxing and entertaining right in the comfort of their own backyard.
Something we always stress to new buyers is the importance of placement when it comes to installing their outdoor hot tub. A hot tub is meant to be enjoyed daily, and to get the most use out of it 365 days a year, it needs to installed in a location that is convenient to access, and close to a doorway into the home.
Creating a Pathway To Your Hot Tub
Creating a pathway that leads from your house to the hot tub is not only critical for the safety and use of your spa at any time during the day or evening, it’s also important for ensuring the health of the water.
Drudging through muddy grass or snow before entering into your hot tub will dirty the water faster, and increase the amount of time you spend on maintenance. That’s why we recommend including materials like brick, concrete or paving stones, as quick, clean solutions for connecting your home to your spa.
And don’t just think about day time use! Add illuminating lighting to your steps and walkways to ensure easy access in the evening and night. We recommend using a mix of lighting sources, with solar-powered and low voltage lights intermixed with the utility focused path lighting, to create ambience and interest to the surrounding landscape as you highlight pathways.
