Create an Outdoor Oasis

A hot tub can be a valuable addition to any Austin, Texas home. Everybody can benefit from hydrotherapy – for everything from stress relief and soothing muscle soreness, to sharing a rejuvenating soak with family and friends. Start with a beautifully designed, high-performance hot tub. Then, you can plan an outdoor oasis that provides your backyard and spa with serenity and privacy, as well as a place for socializing. Free from the restrictions of the walls, doors and windows inside the house, you can make an outdoor oasis as sophisticated or as rustic as you like.

  • Plan a four-seasons outdoor room around your hot tub – more versatile than a summers-only pool.
  • Keep it simple: think about the indoor/outdoor fabrics and furnishings; an attractive, easy-to-install gazebo; natural stone and wood; and plantings.
  • Create a leafy, natural retreat around your hot tub, for privacy and beauty.

You don’t necessarily need professional landscapers to create the perfect place to enjoy your hot tub. We can help you design a hot tub plan with a luxurious, built-in look. You might be surprised at how easy and affordable it is to install a hot tub half-in, half-out of the ground, using stone, brick or wood decking and attractive foliage to create your outdoor oasis.

  • With a hot tub in Austin, plan to spend more time outdoors year ’round.

    One of today’s hottest design trends is creating a relaxed environment for private enjoyment or casual entertaining. As a private and a social extension of the home, a hot tub-centered “living room” brings the indoors outside. Who doesn’t dream of a backyard where they can relax, enjoy family time, or invite guests for a barbecue and hot tub party? You can have just that, with a little planning.

    Apply the five basics of interior design to your outdoor oasis:

    1. Floor coverings (what goes under the hot tub and around it: decks, hardscape, lawns and gardens)
    2. Wall décor (screens, trellises, hanging plants, a gazebo)
    3. Lighting (soft lighting from your hot tub is one source)
    4. Furnishings (patio table and chairs, planters)
    5. Accessories (spa steps, bar and stools, stereo, barbecue)

    You have a wide choice of styles, options, and accessories. Have fun putting together the perfect hot tub plan for your backyard!
