The outdoor living trend continues to flourish with no signs of slowing down. The hot tub and luxury swim spa industry, in particular, is seeing an enormous surge in sales across the country, as Brits flock to their gardens to take advantage of the great weather.

Installing a hot tub is simple and adds value to any outdoor space alongside offering a host of wellness benefits. The latest swim spas will even allow you to practise your breaststroke without needing acres of space and the headache of swimming pool maintenance.

Hot tub and swim spa surrounds now benefit from decades of material development since they last experienced a boom in the 1970s. Back then, the choice was between installing your hot tub on a grey square of concrete, directly onto grass, or onto an uninspiring tiled area. Today, you can choose any aesthetic to fit your overall garden scheme. And whereas wooden decking would have previously been a bad idea, given its propensity to host algae (and therefore become slippery – not exactly an ideal combination next to a hot tub), Millboard decking enables you to create the distinctive and naturalistic surround of your dreams!

Millboard decking contains no wooden fibre at all, which means that it will never host rot, pests or algae. Furthermore, its impressive slip resistance makes it the perfect match for a hot tub or swim spa surround. And most importantly, it’s a beautiful product, perfectly mimicking the contours and grain of real wood – indeed, it’s moulded from real wood.

Available in a wide range of colours and a choice of finishes, your perfect hot tub deck or swim spa surround is easier than you think to achieve.
