It all starts with a vision. An idea to increase your property’s value by taking your outside space to the next level. But can a spa really take you there? Can adding a Strong Spa to your outdoor space actually increase the value of your home? With proper planning and a well-executed vision, you’ll find that adding a spa will not only enhance your outdoor experience, but can also add tremendous value to your property.

It’s no secret that home renovations can be risky and expensive, but studies show that successful outdoor renovations can add serious value to your home. According to a Virginia Tech study published by the SF Gate, a successful landscaping project can add upwards of 12.7% or $38,100 for every $300,000 of the sale price. So what’s the key to outdoor value? VISION. Rather than making your spa seem like an impulse buy that just sits in the corner of the property, the key is to incorporate your spa as a major focus of a well-designed outdoor landscape. Best practices to execute that plan can vary based on the owner’s interests and his or her target buyers, but here are a few ideas to maximize the appeal of your outdoor landscape and add serious value of your property:


A spa is most likely going to be the largest and most expensive piece of your outdoor space, that being said, it’s important to design the rest of your landscape around the spa. Popular strategies are to introduce the spa with a beautiful stone or brick walkway. More elaborate ideas include surrounding the spa with a finished deck or placing it underneath an arbor or terrace. Keep in mind the color and design of your spa’s exterior so as to stay consistent with your vision.


Finding the proper placement for your spa is also very important. Avoid placing it far from the house, off in a secluded corner, or randomly somewhere in the center of the lawn. These placements will only make it harder and more expensive to design the surrounding landscape and will likely discourage you from using it in the colder months. Best practices would be to keep the spa close to the house, while utilize a single existing wall or railing. This placement allows easy access to the spa and still gives you plenty of options for the surrounding design.


It’s important to remember that there is no such thing as a cookie-cutter model for designing your outdoor space, so just have fun with it! Many beautiful spas are completed with a simple surrounding moat of pebbles or seashells. Other popular ideas include using nearby furniture or well-maintained plant-life to augment their spa’s appearance. Of course there’s always everyone’s favorite: FEATURES! Lights, speakers, fountains, waterfalls, and dozens of other dazzling features could be just what it takes to push a potential buyer over the edge and add tremendous value to your outdoor space.

Whether you’re looking to sell, or have plans to stay long-term, adding value to your property is always a plus. Instead of keeping the outdoor space as an afterthought, consider the benefits of making the outdoor space the focal point of your property. create a vision, enact a plan, and have fun watching your property value soar!

Making great moments are all about seizing opportunity. “A set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something” is a great definition of opportunity (Thank you Webster’s!).

As you’re considering investing in a Strong Spas spa, we want to help you seize the opportunity — and make future great moments — by outlining the set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something. In this case, it’s making that Strong Spas purchase.

Here are the key factors to consider to help you select the spa that is best suited for you and your lifestyle.

1) Location

Location actually entails a number of factors. These include the amount of space you’ll need for your spa, which can affect the size of your spa. Other factors include where you want to put it and if that area is a deck that needs to be supported or reinforced, the proximity of access to an electrical supply, and even if you want the spa to be a focal point of your backyard.

Some other things to consider about your spa’s location include your climate. If you live in a warmer climate, you’ll want an area that’s shaded for your spa. In a colder climate, you’ll want a spot that’s close to where you go in and out of your house.

Do you want it covered to protect it from the elements, or do you live in a warmer, more arid climate and want to gaze at the stars?

The view from your spa is another factor, as is whether you want it to be the focal point of your yard or want it to take a back seat to other things in the yard.

2) Fit

Not only is it important for you to decide where you want to put your spa, but also factor in how big you want it to be. If you go big, will it fit where you want it? Do you even want to go big?

If you envision your spa as a retreat where you can quietly recharge, you’re probably in the market for a smaller-sized spa. If you see your spa as a place to socialize and for recreation, then you’ll want a bigger spa that seats more people. With a spa that’s a part of your socializing lifestyle, it will also be important to have room for amenities that can range from a grill, to outdoor furniture, even activities in the yard.

Strong spas has a number of product lines and sizes that can meet your lifestyle and vision.

3) Purpose

Pretty much whatever you want or need in a spa, Strong Spas has a spa that can suit your desires. Strong Spas has varied seating styles, a wide range of jets that can vary in number and location, LED water columns and custom-molded waterfall, exterior lights and cup holders, and we could go on.

The determination you can make is what’s important to you and the lifestyle you’re pursuing. Our custom-built spas can meet every one of your needs and allows you to customize your hydrotherapy experience.

As we mentioned earlier, one of the considerations is your lifestyle and how you envision your spa meeting your expectations. We have plenty of information on our website about our spa lines and their extensive, luxurious features to help you make your decision.
