An in-ground trampoline is a trampoline with its legs and support frame buried in a hole, with just the surface exposed. Compared to above-ground trampolines, in-ground trampolines are much safer to play on, much safer to jump down from, and much less of an eyesore. However, the initial installation is significantly more expensive, and you can’t just pick it up and move it to another house. Before you start digging, be sure to call 811 so people will come out for free and mark any electric or other utility lines so you don’t dig through them.
- Building an in-ground trampoline means less safety concerns for all parents
- In-ground trampolines are not removable and can be quite expensive and time-consuming to build
- Remember to measure and account for any extra space needed when planning for your dig
“The biggest concern with leaving a trampoline up in the winter is the weight of the snow stretching the mat and springs.”
