Enhance Your Property Value in NZ with These Spa Pool Landscaping Ideas

05 June, 2024
If you're a homeowner, then you know that the value of your property is something that has to be taken care of. If it isn't, you might find yourself having to sell at a loss - and who wants that? Luckily for you, there are many ways to increase the value of your property. In this blog post we'll talk about some creative ideas on how you can make your home more valuable!

Create Your Own Oasis With A Landscaped Garden Area

Landscaping is nothing new but it can be an inexpensive and great way to increase the value of your property by creating your own private oasis. If you’re short on time or don’t have a green thumb, adding a landscaped garden area is a great way to add some life to your backyard space. Landscape design services are offered by many companies that can help turn any backyard into a place you'd rather be!
Alternatively, if you want your home to look good, but don't want to pay a lot of money for landscaping services, you could always plant your own garden and add little by little over time. It might seem like a lot of work, but when it is done right, it will be worth all the time and effort!  Not only will it increase the value of your home, but you'll be able to enjoy it for yourself as well.

Install A Spa Pool

Another way to increase the value of your property is by adding a spa pool! Not only are they relaxing and therapeutic, but they can also add some extra square footage to your home. When choosing a spa pool, be sure to consider the size of your garden and how much space you have available. Make sure to incorporate the location and positioning of the spa pool into your landscaping plans.
You can also add some character and personality to your spa pool is by adding a water feature. This could be anything from a simple waterfall to an elaborate fountain. If you don't have the space for a water feature, you could always add some plants or shrubs around the spa pool. This will make it more of a private space that you and your family can enjoy together. Furthermore, adding a spa pool will increase the value of your property because it is one less thing that the new home owner would need to hassle with. With a ready installed spa built beautifully into it's surroundings, the new owner can focus on more important things.


Understanding the New Zealand housing market can be tricky, but one thing is for certain: if you are a homeowner or property investor, you will want your property value to increase. Otherwise, you risk selling at a loss – and nobody wants that.


The property sector in NZ seems to be climbing back up from its significant downfall in previous years. However, this isn’t the time to sit idle and wait for the market to just pick itself up. Instead, stay ahead of the game and ensure you sell (or rent) your property at a profit.


So, how can you do it?


Luckily, we have created this blog post to explore spa pool landscaping ideas for NZ properties that can help increase property value.



Designing a Backyard Retreat That Boosts Your Property Value


While many NZ homeowners focus their efforts on the interiors of their property, you should not overlook the importance of revitalising the look and feel of your backyard. Landscaping is a relatively inexpensive way to help increase your home value while improving the overall aesthetics of your outdoor space.


While a DIY landscaping project can be fun and exciting, you should remember that you can also hire professionals for the job at hand – and it doesn’t have to cause a dent in your wallet. Budgeting and planning ahead are crucial when it comes to renovating and upgrading your outdoor space, so don’t be afraid to start early!


With your own backyard retreat, there will be no reason for you to book spa days any longer. Instead, you will have the opportunity to relax and unwind in your very own private spa-like area in your backyard.


After all, with a large and luxurious spa pool in your backyard, spa day can be every day. This is something that many would-be homeowners are likely to desire, thereby boosting property value.



Backyard Spa Pool Landscaping Ideas


Spa pool landscaping can be an excellent way to increase property value for NZ homes. Investing in landscaping can enable you to design a private oasis in the comfort and convenience of your own backyard. This could include adding small round hot tubs for your backyard, as well as decorating the space to create a cosy and inviting ambience that’s reminiscent of the spa.


So, what are some backyard spa landscaping ideas to get you started or to spark inspiration?


Create Privacy Barriers & Pathways with Hedges


Privacy is key to increasing property value. Let’s face it – while some of us might enjoy chatting with the neighbours, sometimes, we all want a little bit of privacy and just time to ourselves. If your backyard is completely open, it’s time to add privacy barriers and hedges to create a closed-off space.


Not only is this an excellent way to gain more privacy, but barriers can also help with deterring and keeping out intruders. Crafting pathways is essential for navigating your way around your backyard, and with hedges, air quality will be improved (compared to having traditional fences).


When you add a relaxing spa pool to your backyard, barrier hedging can provide shelter from the elements, offering shade and privacy.

Landscaping With Decorative Rocks & Stones


Decorating and making sure your outdoor space appears cohesive and sophisticated isn’t as complicated as it may seem. Using decorative rocks and stones is one way to add texture and colour to your backyard, and they can be used on almost any surface – from flower beds to pathways.


Using stones and rocks to line your outdoor paths can be a charming approach for directing family and friends to your seven-seater spa pool. Don’t forget that decorative rocks and stones don’t always have to be small. Larger rocks can also be used as focal points in your garden, and positioned in corners or different spots to add dimension.


Keep in mind which colours and textures you use and stick to a minimal variety. In some cases, having too many different colours and textures of stones and rocks can make them look out of place.

Build An Outdoor Living Space or BBQ Area


Get ready for barbie season by creating an outdoor living space or BBQ area, complete with a spa pool with multiple features. Perfect for enjoying the fresh air and warm temperatures during summer, or simply having somewhere to hang out in during the day and evenings, an outdoor living space is a must-have for Kiwi homes.


Boost your property value with custom pergolas and patios, designed to accommodate any size backyard. Include a BBQ area for outdoor gatherings, and consider adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace with seating areas for colder evenings. Extending the living space into the outdoors is a sure way to raise buyer interest.

If you don’t have a lot of outdoor space, a small spa can easily fit into the corner or nook of your backyard, without taking too much space. This will allow you to still unwind and relax without feeling too cramped in a small backyard.
