Our Guide to Getting Your Garden and Hot Tub Ready for Spring

As winter fades away and spring begins to show its colours, it's the right moment to give our outdoor spaces a fresh start. If you have a hot tub, now's the time to prepare your garden and spa for the warm weather. Here are some key steps to ensure your garden and hot tub complement each other well, turning your backyard into a welcoming retreat.

1. Start with a Clean Slate

  • Garden Prep:

Begin by clearing away any debris left from winter—fallen branches, dead leaves, and the like. Assess your garden's condition and prune damaged or overgrown branches to encourage new growth. Early spring is ideal for soil preparation; consider enriching your garden beds with compost to give your plants the best start.

  • Hot Tub Maintenance:

For Hydropool Self-Cleaning Hot Tub owners, maintenance is simplified thanks to its self-cleaning system. However, a seasonal deep clean ensures your hot tub is in peak condition. Check and clean filters and ensure the water's chemical balance is perfect. This is also a great time to inspect your hot tub cover for wear and tear, ensuring it's ready to keep your spa clean and energy-efficient.

2. Plan Your Planting

  • Companion Planting:

As you select plants for your garden, consider those complementing your hot tub area. Fragrant herbs and flowers can enhance the relaxation experience. Lavender, for example, not only smells divine but also repels mosquitoes. Ensure plants near your hot tub are non-toxic and won't drop leaves into the water.

  • Seasonal Blooms:

Choose a mix of perennials and annuals to ensure continuous bloom throughout the seasons. Early spring flowers like crocuses and daffodils bring immediate life to your garden, while summer bloomers will add colour and vibrancy as you spend more time outdoors.

3. Create Ambiance with Lighting and Decor

  • Lighting:

Strategic lighting can transform your hot tub area into an enchanting evening retreat. Solar-powered lights are an eco-friendly choice, illuminating pathways and highlighting garden features. Waterproof LED lights can add a splash of colour inside your Hydropool Self-Cleaning Hot Tub, creating a mesmerising effect.

  • Decor:

Incorporate elements that reflect your personal style. Outdoor rugs, waterproof cushions, and stylish planters can tie the garden together. Consider a pergola or gazebo for added privacy and shade, enhancing your hot tub experience.

4. Enhance Privacy and Security

  • Fencing:

A well-designed fence secures your garden and adds to its aesthetic appeal. Ensure it's high enough to provide privacy for your hot tub sessions. Climbing plants or trellises can soften the look and integrate the fence into your garden's theme.

  • Security Measures:

While the Hydropool Self-Cleaning Hot Tub is designed with safety in mind, adding motion-sensitive lights or a camera can provide additional security and peace of mind, especially for those with young families.

5. Sustainable Practices

  • Water Conservation:

The Hydropool Self-Cleaning Hot Tub is engineered for efficiency, significantly reducing water wastage. Complement this by collecting rainwater for your garden and choosing drought-resistant plants.

6. Final Touches

  • Sound System:

For those who enjoy music, integrating a waterproof sound system can elevate your hot tub experience. Whether it's soothing classical music or the sounds of nature, the right audio can transport you to complete relaxation.

  • Entertainment Space:

For the ultimate entertainment space, consider adding an outdoor kitchen near your hot tub area. It’s perfect for hosting spring and summer gatherings, allowing you to enjoy great food, good company, and the relaxing bubbles of your Hydropool Self-Cleaning Hot Tub. An outdoor television, made to have a great viewing experience even under bright sunlight, could also be a great addition.

  • Custom Watercare Systems

With options for saltwater technology and EZ Aquazure Mineral Watercare, these hot tubs allow you to customise your water treatment, ensuring the water is always pristine and gentle on your skin.
