When you were in school did you jump on a trampoline? If you did you can probably remember that feeling of weightlessness and how fun it was, right? Is an inground trampoline safe? That might be a question you’re asking yourself, especially if your children have been using trampolines and now want one of their own.
Trampoline — inground and above ground — is not only a great thing to have fun on, but it’s a great way to get in shape. When you’re rebounding you have the momentary feeling of flying and it is exhilarating. Trampolines are fun for children and adults so if your children are asking for one, don’t discount how much you will enjoy it!
Is An Inground Trampoline Safe?
Inground trampolines are generally considered safer than above ground simply because they are lower to the ground and there is a smaller chance of falling off from a high height like you could on an above ground model.
An inground trampoline has its frame set into a hold that’s been excavated into the ground. The frame sits in the hole and the jump mat is flush with the ground.
The benefits of an inground trampoline?
Safety: When you’re on an inground you run a smaller risk of falling off of it — although it can still happen. As with an above ground trampoline, you may want to have a safety fence surrounding it to prevent falls from the jump mat to the ground.
Looks: Inground trampolines are considered more aesthetically pleasing because they blend in with the surroundings because they are flush with the ground. You can remove the safety net when the trampoline isn’t in use and that adds to its beauty and its blending in with your landscaping.
The in-ground trampoline will be delivered to your home and you construct the frame and place it into the excavated area. Many DIYers dig the hole themselves although some will hire someone to come and run heavy equipment to dig the hole for them.
