There are a multitude of reasons to incorporate a spa into your backyard. From the therapeutic benefits to the 'unplugged' couples or family time they provide, to the fact they can be used in all four seasons - spas area a popular investment. Siting and incorporating a spa appropriately into your landscape can greatly enhance your enjoyment. Privacy, accessibility, views, non-slip surfaces, and cover systems among other factors are all considered in the design phase. Where appropriate adding a deck surround can not only make it easier to enter and exit a spa, but it can also make it appear more built into the landscape by visually reducing its physical mass.


When building a deck adjacent to a spa, a height of around 18 inches (45cm) allows users to sit on the edge of the spa and swing their legs into or out of the spa easily.
