Up the relaxation factor in your outdoor areas with these spa-inspired additions.
INCORPORATE A LUXURY HOT TUB INTO YOUR LANDSCAPING
Soaking in an outdoor hot tub is something to be enjoyed year round on the West Coast and makes a luxurious addition to your backyard. There is the risk that it can look utilitarian if it’s not integrated with careful planning. Using stonework — as shown with this custom-cast concrete hot tub project in Metchosin — is one way to incorporate your hot tub into the rest of your landscaping.

ADD A WEST COAST SAUNA
An outdoor cedar sauna is the ideal add-on to a West Coast home. Sooke-based Forest Lumber & Cooperage makes its saunas with kiln-dried, 100-per-cent heartwood Western redcedar. Its horizontally oriented Cedar Barrel sauna comes in a range of sizes and can be equipped with a small porch. The more space-conscious vertical sauna can also be used indoors without the roof package.
