At H2O, our hot tubs are ideal for small spaces, and with some creativity, even a cosy little garden can be transformed into your very own personal oasis.

Hot Tub Garden

Make Use Of The Existing Landscape

If you have an existing patio or decking area, then this can be the perfect spot for your hot tub. Just make sure the area is completely level and your hot tub has the correct foundation, a concrete base for example. If your garden has a slight incline, that's no problem, create a terraced garden with the hot tub as the center piece. Carve out a flat area, add a retaining wall, and let the gradient provide that secluded feeling.


Soften The Boundaries

Tall fences and shrubbery can make a small space feel closed in, calling attention to your property’s borders. Use trees or potted plants instead of fencing to create a more inviting atmosphere. If you prefer fencing, consider using a shorter barrier so that you can see the tops of your neighbor’s trees and flowers. Then plant similar colors in your garden, which can “blur the lines” and make their property seem like an extension of your own. If you already have a tall fence, cover it with vines so it blends into the landscape and gives your garden a spacious feel.

Decorate With Plants

Even when you only have a deck or patio to work with, you can still enjoy the soothing sight of flowers. Hang boxes from windows or patio railings and plant cascading blooms to add beauty and ambiance. Flowers like bidens and calibrachoa provide a happy pop of colour when in season, or try hardier plants like Bergenia for year-round decoration.

Create A Privacy Screen

Sometimes, you may want to have total privacy rather than opening up your space and making it appear larger. City residents and those with small lots can create a sense of seclusion and avoid prying eyes by hanging fabric, using tall, potted plants, or putting up a folding screen.

You don’t need an expansive yard to create a sense of spaciousness and a relaxing, inviting mood for your small hot tub. Give us a call to find out more tips or for general hot tub advice.
