Beautiful Economical Hot Tubs

I am longing for a hot tub but I utterly despise the look of most everything on offer from the plethora of mini mall spa companies. Unless they are set completely in ground I refuse to specify them – they simply are the ugliest things I have ever seen. For my own home, this is what I want.

These beautiful handcrafted tubs actually look beautiful in the landscape and are cheaper than the ugly plastic boxes.

I love the setting for this tub and the steps that lead over the rock to the perfect view. Tubs available here.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I’m with you on this one. Big ‘ol boxes filled with water are hideous to look at. I built our hot tub into our deck and don’t regret the effort or expense one bit.

    where did you did find the Hot Tub located in the 1st ic, the one that is flush with the ground?

      The tubs all come from which I think operates out of Alaska — but ship everywhere. I am not sure this is in ground – I think the deck is elevated…but you can ask them directly.
      If you buy one, we would love to see how the project comes out!
