Where did you get this hot tub? - This hot tub is beautiful. I would love to have a patio like this. It all is so elegant and modern. I would just be concerned with not having it covered. I have been looking into hot tub lids for some help with that. This is just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing this picture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Place it properly. Avoid leaving all sides of your hot tub exposed. Instead, use existing walls and railings to hide multiple sides, then mask what remains with a wooden enclosure. Head on, you’ll see functional steps leading to your tub, but from the side, the tub will appear as a warm wood wall.

in a bubbling outdoor hot tub is one of life’s great pleasures. When the tub is not in use, though, staring at those ugly vinyl covers can feel like a bucket of cold water is being dumped on your head. Hot tubs present bigger aesthetic challenges, too. Just how do you integrate a 600-hundred-gallon vessel of water into your landscape and have it look good? Here are eight ways to work in a hot tub while preserving your backyard’s beauty.
