As a hot tub owner, your backyard is probably already your go-to relaxation spot. But what if you want to take it further than just soaking in your spa? Here are four outdoor additions to complement your hot tub and backyard:
Add More Water
Create your own oasis by installing a waterfall. Used in places known for serenity, like massage therapy rooms, the sound of a waterfall is synonymous with relaxation. Ponds, which can include waterfalls, koi fish, or other additions, can also make your backyard more attractive and inviting.
Similar to a bonfire on the beach, a fire pit can give your backyard a sense of nostalgia that can be very soothing after a long day. Whether you build a permanent outdoor fireplace or purchase a portable version, make sure to check your local ordinances before you invest as some cities limit the size and use of fire pits. Tiki torches are also a nice way to give your backyard that resort feel, as well as helping keep the bugs away.
Create a Yoga or Relaxation Area
Similar to the way your hot tub provides a variety of hydrotherapy benefits for your entire back, yoga is a great way to relax and relieve your spine of the compression it endures each day. Create a dedicated outdoor space for yoga, meditation, and other relaxation methods to give you and your family members a place to unwind each day.
Build an Outdoor Bar
Whether you’re enjoying a glass of wine with your partner or entertaining friends, an outdoor bar can make your backyard a more welcoming environment. Rather than disrupting conversation to trek back and forth from the kitchen, this outdoor addition provides that added convenience of having a fully stocked bar and glassware on hand, making entertaining more enjoyable and less stressful.
