Backyard Hot Tub Installation Ideas

Backyard Hot Tub Installation Ideas

Designing your backyard spa retreat is fun. It can also be overwhelming. At Colorado Custom Spas, we are experts when it comes to installing backyard hot tubs in Denver. So, to help you, we have compiled some backyard hot tub installation ideas to inspire you.

We carry a variety of hot tubs for the Denver area including Bullfrog Spas, Artesian Spas, and Passion Spas. There are many installation options for these hot tubs in Denver. Before you settle on the design of your personal spa haven, here are a few items to consider. 


As the saying goes, “safety first!” At Colorado Custom Spas, we care about your safety. That’s why all of our spas at Colorado Custom Spas are high quality and adhere to strict safety standards. In addition, every hot tub purchase with us comes with slip-resistant steps, a hot tub cover, and a cover lifter.

Quality steps help ensure your safety as you enter and exit the tub. A hot tub cover helps keep debris out of your spa, keeps animals and children safe from falling in, and detours uninvited guests. 

Other safety accessories to consider are handrails and quality water care chemicals.

At Colorado Custom Spas, we have the accessories and chemicals you need to keep your family safe and your spa water clean and healthy.


Some spas are considered “plug and play”. These only require a regular outlet to plug into. Then they are ready to fill and “play” in. Other hot tubs require more voltage and therefore require a certified electrician to install.

When considering hot tub installation, don’t forget to take into account electrical wiring and access to power.


Everyone wants privacy and solitude when soaking in a hot tub. When designing your installation, make sure you choose a private area for your spa. Privacy can be attained with fencing, landscaping, or other types of screens.

Landscaping helps create a private sanctuary for hot tubs Denver.

Above ground hot tub installation ideas include placing your hot tub on a foundation pad, a deck, or a concrete slab/patio.

When filled, a hot tub can weigh approximately 4,000 pounds! Whatever foundation you choose needs to be level, stable, and reinforced.

If you decide on a deck, make sure your deck is inspected and reinforced to hold the weight of your tub.

If you want the in-ground look but not the in-ground process, we can also give your above ground hot tub the illusion of an in-ground one.

Faux in-ground hot tub installation ideas include building a wall and/or steps to surround your spa or building a natural rock-style feature around it.
