Q: How do we make a hot tub blend with our backyard?

Tamara says....
If possible, add the tub to your existing deck to make it feel like part of the planned space. Avoid shoving it up against a wall or fence. If it does end up being close to one, flank the tub with hanging lanterns and add a wall planter filled with cascading flowers and ivy. Placing large containers filled with shrubs or full flowers around the area will not only pretty it up but will add a little privacy too. And don’t forget to provide a place to hang up your towels—dock cleats make great outdoor hooks.
