Pros And Cons Of In-ground Trampolines

Pros And Cons Of In-ground Trampolines

Will a trampoline detract from your backyard landscaping? Yes, if you get an above-ground trampoline. If you invest in an inground trampoline, it will blend in with your current landscaping and not interfere with any site lines. You will need to mow around your inground trampoline and that might be a concern when you’re buying a trampoline for your family. There are pros and cons of in-ground trampolines just as there are with any purchase you make, but being informed will help you make the right decision for your family.

Pros And Cons Of In-ground Trampolines

When you have an inground trampoline you will need to:

  1. Dig a hole for it
  2. Add a retaining wall
  3. Ensure there is proper drainage and ventilation
  4. Install the frame
  5. Add the springs and jump mat

When you buy from us you will make an investment in the entire inground trampoline kit and it will be delivered to your house.

Here are some of the differences between an in-ground and an above ground trampoline.

  1. In-ground trampolines look great, as mentioned
  2. You don’t have to worry about how to get onto and off of the trampoline
  3. It won’t tip over
  4. It won’t get blown over in a windstorm

What are some of the challenges of an inground trampoline?

  1. You can’t move it
  2. They cost more than the above ground and that cost includes the excavation
  3. It may not be as bouncy as the above ground because of less ventilation
