How should I dig in my InGround trampoline?

Everything about trampolines

How should I dig in my InGround/FlatGround trampoline?

A trampoline that is dug into the ground (also called InGround or underground trampoline) is a trampoline that you can install in the ground. The InGround trampolines can also be subdivided into the BERG InGround and FlatGround trampolines, which will look great in your garden. Because the trampoline is so low or even level with the ground, it is less noticeable. As a result, getting in or out is a lot easier and therefore safer than a trampoline with legs.

A brief summary of the differences between the two types of trampolines: with an InGround trampoline, the frame protrudes slightly above the ground. A FlatGround (Flat to the ground) trampoline can be completely recessed into your garden and will be level with your garden. This allows for very easy and safe access to the trampoline, making it even easier to jump. Thanks to our wide trampoline range, there is an InGround version available in every product line.

Dig in your trampoline with a few simple steps

To enjoy jumping on an InGround or FlatGround trampoline, a hole needs to be dug under the trampoline. The hole gives the jump mat room to stretch and create an airflow that launches the jumper (also known as flipper) with each jump. In the tutorials below, you can see exactly how best to dig a hole for your Inground trampoline and what you will need. Good luck!

Digging in trampoline step 1

1/5 Step 1

Decide where you want to place the trampoline in the ground. When doing so, keep 2 metres away from other obstacles for a safe jumping experience. Mark the location on the ground as shown in the manual. When doing so, keep to the dimensions given in the manual supplied with the trampoline.

Then use a shovel or spade to cut out the edges inside the circle. From that edge, you can then shovel out the middle section. If you shovel the soil straight into a wheelbarrow, you will keep the grass nice and clean.
