flatground trampolines - advantages and disadvantages

PROS - Flat Ground Trampolines

CONS - Flatground Trampolines

1. SUITABILITY:

As with inground trampolines installing on wet ground can present challenges, so its important to evaluate the suitability of your garden before you jump in.

2. LANDINGS:

The ground can still be a very hard surface to land on so adequate care must be taken. If you land on the grass on your shoulder, elbow or head, a visit to the hospital could certainly be on the cards.

3. YOU HAVE TO DIG A BIG HOLE:

It goes without saying that some digging will have to take place, and this is usually most effectively achieved with a digger or mini-digger. You may need someone fairly competent to install, if you do not wish to take on this task yourself.

See our installation guide here.

4. YOU MAY HAVE A BIG HOLE TO FILL:

If you ever change your mind and no longer need your flatground trampoline or it has reached the end of its usefulness to you, you could have a big hole to fill.

5. PROBABLE INCREASE IN YOUR POPULARITY:

You could find your self becoming very popular with the kids in your neighbourhood.
