5 In-ground Trampoline Landscaping Ideas

Summer is on the horizon. If you live in Arizona, where our business is proudly located, summer has been here for a while now! What we want to talk about today are 5 in-ground trampoline landscaping ideas.

The beauty of the in-ground trampoline is that it blends in with your landscaping and doesn’t detract from anything you have already done in your yard to make it aesthetically appealing.

5 In-ground Trampoline Landscaping Ideas

Landscaping will help you get more enjoyment out of the yard space you have. Additionally, “proper” landscaping will also help you get a great “flow” in the yard and to and from the house. Swimming pool owners understand this and work closely with their pool contractors to ensure there is a great flow around the pool area itself and to get into the pool from the house. The same can be, and should be, done for your in-ground trampoline.

  1. What is your budget? Know what you can afford to budget for the landscaping around the in-ground trampoline. Knowing what your budget is is necessary before you work with a contractor to beautify your space.
  2. Will you landscape to attract, or detract, from the fact that you have an in-ground trampoline? Some trampoline owners want to announce to the world that they have one, other trampoline owners want to keep it on the downlow. You need to decide where you fall in that group and landscape accordingly.
  3. Plant for beauty and scent but beware of bees and birds. When you’re on the trampoline, breathing in the scent of flowers will enhance the experience. You don’t want to plant anything that will draw too many birds because they you are dealing with bird droppings. Bees are beneficial to the environment, but may not be so beneficial to the trampoline space unless you are careful where you step and how closely you plant to the trampoline.
  4. Where will you sit when you’re not on the in-ground trampoline? Where will you relax when you just want to watch the children or other family member on the trampoline. Keep in mind that supervision is a part of responsible trampoline ownership and you may as well be comfortable when doing the supervising, right?
  5. What if you want to use the in-ground trampoline once the sun has set? If you work long hours or leave early in the morning you may be faced with rebounding in low light. Because you need to be safe at all times you need to ensure the trampoline is lighted for safety. Consider stringing LED lights around the area where you will be using the trampoline and where you will be sitting and relaxing when you’re in “supervisory mode.”

  4. Go wild with outdoor toys. Jump ropes, balls, croquet, bocce balls, pools, bicycles and more add to summer fun.
  5. Take a walk. Get reacquainted with the neighborhood or take a short drive to a new spot and have a picnic.

  7. Set up a craft table.
  8. Make or buy a sandbox and add in a lot of sandbox toys.

Eight Trampoline Safety Tips

As sellers of high-quality in-ground and above-ground trampolines, we take great pride and satisfaction in knowing we are sharing safety tips and advice for any and all who buy one of our trampolines. We put together eight trampoline safety tips – some may be familiar – but we have people buying trampolines for the 2021 jumping season and a refresher is always great!

Whether you’re new to trampoline ownership or are old-hats or are switching from an in-ground trampoline to an above ground or vice versa read on for these tips. We know that trampoline accidents happen. We also know that if proper care is taken, these accidents and incidents can be avoided.

Eight Trampoline Safety Tips

Here are tips to read, print out and keep by your trampoline at all times!

  1. Only one person can use the trampoline at a time. The only – and we don’t recommend it – time is if the two people on it are of approximately the same weight. In fact, toddlers, who don’t get airborne are likely the safest twosome to be on at the same time.
  2. No flips or in air somersaults are allowed. If someone wants to do that then they need to do that at a facility with a trainer who can work with them – not at home.
  3. Safety equipment matters. Make sure you have invested in all the safety equipment you have the budget for. Use shock absorbing pads to completely cover the frame, hooks and springs. Use a safety net or enclosure. Don’t let anyone jump up and hang onto the enclosure.
  4. Keep the trampoline away from any overhead hazards. You may be trying to decide where in your yard to place the trampoline but you will want to look up as well as down. Keep it away from roof overhangs and tree branches.
  5. Make waiting fun. If you have a party and you know everyone will want to use the trampoline, enforce the one person at a time rule and make waiting fun. Set up craft tables or gather a lot of other fun outdoor toys or set up a small wading pool. Set a timer so everyone gets a turn.
  6. Never let anyone jump without adult supervision.
  7. Mini trampolines are hazardous, especially those with the handlebar accessory. Some people will jump too high and use the bar to compensate and can fall forward.
  8. Do your homework. Work with, and buy from, a trampoline seller who has a high reputation for quality materials. You may also need to ask your insurance agent whether a trampoline could impact your coverage.

Look for a reputable dealer for your trampoline — no matter the style. Talk with them and look at their online reviews. Talk with him or her and ask questions about the buying process based on your unique needs.

5 Family Trampoline Buying Tips For 2021

Buying a trampoline for your family can be a somewhat daunting task! We have put together a list of 5 family trampoline buying tips for 2021 that you will definitely want to read.

If your children have been asking for one and you have realized how great they are for working out, this should be the year you decide whether you want an inground or an above ground trampoline. Buying a trampoline that is just right for your family is something we talk with our customers about regularly.

Do your research. Find a trampoline sales person with whom you feel comfortable. Know that you can purchase a trampoline — inground or above ground from us and rest assured you are getting the highest quality trampoline for your budget.

5 Family Trampoline Buying Tips For 2021

Do your research and consider the answers to these questions.

  1. Do you want an above ground or an inground trampoline? Above ground cost less, but will impact the view in your yard. An inground trampoline may cost more, but it will blend in with the surroundings.
  2. The location of the trampoline may also play a role in which style you invest in. Do you have enough space to safely place a trampoline that will have the area above the trampoline free from danger? An overhang on a roof or tree branches can cause injury and you need to know where the trampoline will be placed and if there are any potential overhead dangers.
  3. Do you have a preference on the shape? A rectangle trampoline provides more bounce area. Round ones keep the rebounder centered on the jump mat.
  4.  Even though it is safest — and we recommend — only one person use the trampoline at a time, how many jumpers do you believe will be using it? If there are more than one jumper and if they are of similar weights they may be safe enough to jump together. You will also want to consider the highest weight of the jumpers. Look for a jump mat and springs that can accommodate that weight.
  5. Budget for safety. Look at accessories including: jump mat quality, spring quality and material, spring covers, trampoline enclosure, mat protection cover and others. Talk with us about your safety concerns.

Look for a reputable dealer for your trampoline — no matter the style. Talk with them and look at their online reviews. Talk with him or her and ask questions about the buying process based on your unique needs.
