3. Emphasize Esthetics
Consider what the hot tub will look like when it has finally been installed. Will it stick out like a sore thumb or look like an afterthought in the backyard? Also keep an open-mind. An above-ground hot tub on a concrete pad may not sound like the sexiest option, but with a little thought and the right landscaping, these installations can look spectacular.
