Surrounding your hot tub with trees can be an important item in your backyard planning. Trees add color, texture, and shade to a yard. Just make sure you don't plant those trees to close to the tub. They can shed leaves and debris into the tub, and birds nesting in the trees can do, well, what birds do -- right on your tub. It's best to locate trees farther away from the hot tub, where you can benefit from their shade as they mature. If you have nosey neighbors, you may want to plant a barrier of low trees or shrubs between the hot tub and the neighbors. Be sure to trim any tree branches that might hang over your tub, they can be dangerous and messy.
