Do you want to add a spa to your backyard pool retreat? If so, consider integrating a spillover. Below are some ways the small feature can add to the ambience of your backyard.
1. Water Music Fills the Backyard
Water music on its own is a pleasing sound. Many people find it soothing, which is why it’s incorporated into chill spots such as outdoor lounges or even meditation spaces. That said, with enough of a water spillage, you can get relatively loud water music. The sound of trickling water can even mask background noise, such as from the neighboring yard or the street.
2. Spilling Water Adds Beauty
The spilling water creates different shapes which can even change as the amount of water falling changes. The surface can bubble and twist or become a flat sheet. What’s more, the spilling water catches the sunlight. So, you can see diamond-like glints in the spilling water. You might even see some prism effects if the sun hits the water right.
In addition, spilling water can enhance the materials used in your yard. Indeed, many stones show their best beauty when they’re wet.
What’s more, the spilling water can draw attention to the spa and how it connects to the pool.
3. Spillover Creates a Connection Between the Spa and Pool
For example, your spa may be on the edge of your pool instead of extending into the perimeter. A small opening in the lip of the spa can create that connection between it and the pool that might not otherwise be present.
4. Spillovers Give You More Design Choices
You can also choose a complementary material for the spillover opening to highlight the area. For example, perhaps the rest of the coping is light. You can choose a color from the backsplash, or the background of the spillover, for the spout.
Indeed, the backsplash affords you numerous opportunities to personalize how your spa and pool coordinate with the spillover. While many homeowners keep the material behind the water the same, you could choose this as an area for complementary colors or shapes. Likewise, you could incorporate LED lighting into the waterfall to further draw attention to it.
