As we enter the early days of spring, now’s the perfect time to consider working on your backyard landscape to enhance your spa experience. There are several ways you can add a beautiful garden around your Jacuzzi® that not only provides a stunning display, but serves other helpful purposes as well. We’ve put together some handy tips to help guide your gardening plans — bringing your dream backyard to life this year.
Plant for Privacy
Slipping into your hot tub should feel like you’re transported to another world. But sometimes the lack of privacy can hinder your relaxation. When it comes to planting for hot tub privacy, there are numerous creative ways you can achieve your private oasis.
Planting fast growing trees such as bamboo around your hot tub will create a natural barrier between you and the outside world, helping to emulate a tropical getaway. Or, you could install a lattice and use climbing vines such as wisteria for a secret garden retreat. Don’t feel like doing much yard work? Potted shrubs and trees are easily placed near your hot tub to quickly create natural privacy, without heavy physical exertion.
Create a Natural Aromatherapy Garden around Your Jacuzzi®
As you begin choosing the best plants for a garden around your Jacuzzi®, take into consideration the aromatherapy benefits each plant provides. A small display of herbs such as mint, basil, or chamomile can take your hydrotherapy experience to new heights. Lavender is another popular choice, producing beautiful buds and a stress-relieving scent. Even if aromatherapy isn’t high on your priority list, choosing your favorite flowers with their scent in mind will make your hot tub sessions euphoric and create a stunning view.
Consider the Birds and the Bees
What’s a soak in your hot tub without a little show? Spring and summer are primetime for hummingbird activity, starting in March and lasting till October. While it’s easy to place hummingbird feeders throughout your backyard, they will need to be refilled and can take away from your all-natural design. Instead, you could also opt for specific plants that attract hummingbirds to your yard. These beautiful, delicate creatures are sure to visit your Texas garden when you plant their favorites, such as:
- Coral Honeysuckle
- Trumpet Creeper
- Cigar Plant
It’s no surprise that where you plant your flowers, you’ll find bees. While the notion of buzzing may sound anything but pleasant, it’s important to help support their natural environment too. Honey bees are harmless and vital for your garden to thrive. You can help to attract the right kind of bees by choosing plants like:
- Black Eyed Susan
- Bee Balm
