Portland Outdoor Hot Tub Design and Installation

Drake’s 7 Dees is passionate about Portland landscape design and construction. For our landscape designers, the form and function of your outdoor space is about more than appearance or making a financial investment – it’s about having a great time with the people in your life. And what better place to have a great time with friends and family than in a hot tub, spa, or sauna?

Hot tubs and outdoor spas are simple to maintain and fun to use year-round. While we can help you source and install hot tubs from a variety of manufacturers, with Drake’s 7 Dees you aren’t limited to an out-of-the-box hot tub experience. Our hot tub and in-ground spa designers and installation subcontractors work together to develop a hot tub experience that will provide a relaxing experience whether you’re seeking solitude or time together. If you are looking to create just such a space on your property, contact us to get started today.

Custom Hot Tubs versus Pre-Fabricated Hot Tubs

Pre-fabricated hot tubs come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but with Drake’s 7 Dees, you can avail yourself of the expertise of a landscape construction team that can build a long-lasting, custom, in-ground solution. No matter the shape, size, depth, or jet pattern you’re looking for, we can make it.

Hot Tubs, Spas, Saunas, Steam Rooms, and More

  • Hot tubs are sometimes called spas, though technically most of what people call a hot tub is actually a spa. What’s the difference? Spas have stronger jets that mix air with water for a greater massage effect. Some hot tubs don’t have jets at all! But in terms of design and installation, there’s not much difference. Spas can be both above-ground and in-ground – talk to our team to learn more.
  • Steam rooms and saunas are different primarily in terms of the humidity in the room. A steam room has plenty of it, while a sauna only has moisture in the air when wanted.

Site Analysis Meeting

A Design Associate from Drake’s 7 Dees will meet with you at your home to discuss your landscape goals. Based upon the extent of your landscape desires, the Design Associate will present a ‘Design Proposal’ that represents the number of ‘design hours’ required to produce a set of detailed Landscape Plans specific to your property.


Conceptual Landscape Plan & Preliminary Budget Review

During a ‘working meeting’ at Drake’s 7 Dees office (or phone conference) the Designer will present a Conceptual Landscape Plan based on your input from the Site Analysis meeting. An illustrated ‘plan view’ of your property will be presented which incorporates your stated landscape goals. You will be able to see in concrete ways what your landscape is going to look like when we’re done. Construction material selections will also be discussed and chosen at this time. A ‘Statement of Values’ will provide preliminary construction costs for the various elements of the Landscape Plan. As a working meeting, this will be the time for your input to help us craft a plan for your home’s landscaping that meets both your aesthetic and budget objectives.


Landscape Plan Presentation & Construction Proposal

A final Design Meeting will be scheduled with the Senior Designer to present the revised Landscape Plan and an itemized Construction Proposal for the installation of your new landscape. Modifications to the ‘scope of services’ presented in the Construction Proposal can be accomplished at this time. Your approval of the Landscape Plan and your Signature on the Construction Proposal will give Drake’s 7 Dees the ‘thumbs up’ to schedule the transformation of your landscape.


The Landscape Build

Our team of experienced landscape construction professionals brings your plan to life. We take great pride in making sure our work is completed quickly, expertly, and with minimal disruption for our clients. We want you to have a good experience before, during, and after your landscape renovation.
