Create Your Backyard Oasis

It’s the perfect time to create your backyard oasis. Whether on your deck or patio, you can design a private, beautiful space to relax and make the most of your Nordic Hot Tub. Take a look at some of our tips to consider when creating your outdoor oasis below.

Landscaping & design:

The first step is to consider the landscaping and design of your outdoor oasis. Are you trying to create a more modern look? An elevated, wood deck could accomplish this. Do you want a more natural and artistic feel instead? A stone patio with rock surrounding your tub (and rock/stone steps leading up to it) can achieve this. You could even build your deck around trees in your yard, for a combination of a modern and natural setting. It’s important to design a suitable lounge area, for people to spend time by the hot tub even when they’re not soaking. You may consider adding outdoor furniture, a grilling area, a fire pit, a gazebo, or some tall grass to make the surrounding space even more appealing. There are many options for how to design your space, it all depends on the atmosphere you want to create and how many people you want to accommodate. When selecting your spa, you will want to choose one that suits the shape and size of your patio or deck space.

Emphasize privacy:

Privacy is important, as you are not going to want to be in your neighbors’ view while enjoying a peaceful soak session. There are several options for how to maintain privacy, while still creating a beautiful space. You could add a fence around your yard, set up a privacy screen around your tub, or plant some shrubbery/bushes (or even trees!) around your home’s spa area to provide some privacy from neighbors. Regardless of your decision, any of these options will be beneficial for you, your family, and your guests.


Keep your outdoor space clean and create a calming atmosphere for you and your guests to relax and enjoy your hot tub. Make sure you take care of any dead or dying grass, dirty/stained surfaces, or debris in your tub.

Add some charm to the area surrounding your spa with a garden. You can add shrubbery and flowers to add a touch of color and green to your space. Another option is to add a fountain amongst the plants and garden, as well as some wind chimes. These features can enhance the tranquility of your oasis.

Additionally, you can amplify the beauty of your backyard oasis with lighting. There are numerous options for lights to suit any outdoor style. From soft lighting around trees, to outdoor floating lights, hanging string lights, lanterns, or torches, the possibilities are endless! Lights will add to the peaceful ambiance of your space.
