Note: Long Island Hot Tub is now known as Best Hot Tubs
Working with The Deck and Patio Company, Long Island Hot Tub helped these Long Island clients create the perfect backyard oasis: a lovely free-from pool with deep-end stairs, two-level Cambridge Pavingstones patios, including lounging area with embedded umbrellas, boulder coping, a gentle stream, and a waterfall. So did they really need anything else?
They thought they did. The clients realized they also wanted a water feature they could truly enjoy into the colder months, including winter. Running it separately from the pool, their new portable spa, with its soothing warm waters, carries them through chilly months until it’s time, once again, to open the pool.
The hot tub became part of transforming a previously unusable part of the property into a beautiful, natural space. Instead of building an unattractive wooden retaining wall against the pool, an existing hill was built up with moss rock and other natural elements to allow for a stream and lush plantings to create a special landscape.
Long Island Hot Tub’s Bill Renter nestled the hot tub into the transformed slope. To soften the effect and hide the skirting, boulders and plants were added. Attractive moss rock steps were included to lead to the small blue stone patio near the spa.
“Overall, it looks like a natural stream meandering down the hill into the spa, and then continuing down to the waterfall at the pool,” says Renter.
