According to a 2014 House Spring Landscaping Trends Study, about 83 % of people that participated in the survey believed their back yard is “an ideal entertaining space.” The perception of what a back yard should include has changed over the years. A home owner can no longer have only a grill and trampoline in their backyard and consider a fun and entertaining space. Now more than ever, home owners are adding outdoor kitchens and pools to their back yard. This trend is only going to continue to grow, and there are some strong reasons as to why you should join in on the fun of having a hot tub in your back yard.
1. Swimming is very popular.
As of today, swimming is the 4th most popular sport/activity in the United States. People are just as inclined to swim on a hot summer day than they are to throw a football around their backyard. Whether it be the 4th of July or a friendly weekend get together: people love to swim. If you have guests over and want them to enjoy themselves as they wait for you to grill food, they can relax in your luxurious hot tub. Everyone loves to kick back, relax, and enjoy the warm bubbles.
2. Impress your friends and family
As noted before, times have changed. A nice back yard no longer consists of nice grass and no weeds in your garden. People want to be entertained in the digital age, and thus people expect more from their social activities. If you already have a nice grill and outdoor area, a hot tub will only help to increase the fun in your back yard. Not to mention the fact that if you or your friends have kids, they will also absolutely love the hot tub. According to studies, swimming is also the most popular recreational activity for children ages 7 to 17.
When you think of building your dream house and building a back yard for entertainment and fun, a hot tub is a key element. While a pool is fun for exercise and diving, a hot tub is built for optimal relaxation. The best part is that you don’t even have to install or work on the pool or hot tub yourself. There are plenty of pool contractors to hire and trust to build a pool. If you want to impress your friends this summer, going with a hot tub is your best bet.
