1. Incorporate Plants Into Your Design

Adding plants and flowers to your backyard is an affordable way to create an oasis semblance.

2. Create A Patio or Pathway

Patios and pathways don’t have to be expensive and they really create a whimsical effect if surrounded by tropical plants and trees.

3. Add Patio Furniture

What good is a patio without furniture? Wicker patio furniture sets are usually cost-effective and they posses that tropical look that complements any backyard oasis.

4. Use Ambient Lighting

Ambient lighting is designed to accentuate focal points in your space. Backyard ambient lighting is very affordable, yet instantly makes the space appear like a million bucks after the sun goes down. 

5. Add a Hot Tub

If you can’t afford an expensive swimming pool a Hot Tub with a waterfall is an affordable way to enhance the beauty of any outdoor space.

Coleman Spa Form and Styling:

The first thing I want to talk about in regards to the form of a spa is the seating and mold of the acrylic. These spas are cut nice and deep, so much so that their 7 foot tubs sometimes feel like 8 foot tubs. This also allows the bather to sit nice in deep into the lounge seats and corner spots, giving plenty of immersion into the hot water. Cutting the spa’s deep gives you a much more comfortable sitting situation so your knees aren’t up in your face while you are trying to enjoy a nice therapeutic massage.

I have to save from the moment I saw these tubs at a trade show in Dallas Texas this past January I thought they were one of the better looking hot tubs I had seen. Coleman put a lot of work into making sure these spas really impress on the showroom floor.

So for the great shell colors, stock LED lighting and water feature, and finally the optional jet lights and ipod dock I have to give the Coleman line an 8/10 for form and style!

10 Ways to Create a Backyard Getaway

Try these ideas to turn your backyard into a relaxing outdoor oasis

Add a Hot Tub or Spa

For long, relaxing soaks at the end of the day, a hot tub or spa out on the deck is a must-have luxury. To determine the best location for the spa, consider privacy, access to the house, and whether you want the tub in sunshine or shade.
A typical round hot tub is 6 feet in diameter and takes up about 30 square feet. A rectangular tub requires about 48 square feet. You’ll also need additional room for sitting and walking around the tub.
Bear in mind that a hot tub full of water may weigh 2 tons, so it will need a foundation independent of the deck’s foundation.

Therapeutic Benefits of Hot Tubs: Relaxation and Hydrotherapy

Girl-relaxing-in-spa-1024x519

Relaxation and stress relief are the top reasons customers purchase hot tubs. According to the American Heart Association, heat from hot-water spas leads to a process called vasodilation, or the widening of blood vessels. As the blood vessels open up, tension and pain can also loosen their grip on the body. The AARP also notes that hot water is known for its soothing properties, which can be enhanced by aromatherapy with essential oils, whereas cold water is an inflammation fighter.

Relax in a Coleman Spas Lounger!

The Coleman Spa 756L Hot Tub is the perfect destination for all of your hot tub gatherings. Guests will absolutely love sitting in the contoured seats and experiencing the different jet configurations that target key stress areas in the back.
