Hello sushyatt

Actually this is Ipe wood, a tropical hardwood from Brazil. I believe they had answered this question on a different picture. The wood is very beautiful and resistant to rot, decay, and termites!

Is the spa custom built or something purchased and installed?

It is a Bradford Spa that arrives pre-assembled. We then built the deck around it. Look for our other photos of the same project for more information.

It is a local grown sod. You should discuss the various selections available to you with a local nursery person. Different areas have different needs.

This is lovely. What are the dimensions of the deck and of the spa?

That deck is somewhere between 14-ft to 16-ft wide and about 16-ft long. The actual dimensions should be based off of the spa.

Usually we opt for a lift-off cover as they can have more insulation than roll-up covers. That said, roll-up covers can work if you have the space in your deck structure to cantilever some boards over the fabric roller.

You should really check with a local grower. Every area has it's own microclimate - historic lows and high temps, effects of specific souls, regional pests will all contribute to the success of any plant selection

You will need to make sure your equipment will work in this configuration especially for drainage. Then you will need to hold back the soil while maintaining the required access to your equipment. After meeting all of these requirements, you can then address how you want to clad the raised portion of the remaining spa.

First, be sure you actually want to recess your hot tub. Read more here:
http://www.houzz.com/discussions/214417/what-type-of-hot-tub-is-this-and-how-do-you

And, think about how you will design to be sure you have access for future maintenance and servicing of equipment underneath - trap doors in decking, removable panels on an exposed side, secret room below, etc.

Good luck!

Another interesting point - if the sides of your planters angle outwards at the top, the bamboo will be encouraged to grow upward instead of turning downward (which leads to escape attempts).

@frank & grossman landscape contractors, inc. do you think that angle outwards is necessary is we plan on making a long planter box? we would like it to be 10 feet long, at least 18 inches wide and at least 18 inches deep. i dont want the planter to be too high.

This is Ipe which is a teak relative. Sometimes it is also sold as Mirbao, Purpleheart, Brazilian Cherry, Pao Lope, etc These others are similar but each type is unique and care should be exercised when selecting wood for exterior use.

our nurseryman suggested we plant our bamboo inside an old car tyre which we should bury. This apparently stops the shoots taking over. We're goint to try it.

You can plant rhizome barrier around the bamboo. I believe we dug a three foot deep trench along about 25 foot span of fence. No bamboo has escaped yet. We have running black bamboo, not a clumping variety.
