Trampolines Inground vs. Above Ground: Which is the Best for My Family?

Trampolines are a fun way to stay fit and entertain the whole family. If you are thinking about adding one to your backyard, you’re in luck. There are many models available. The first thing to consider is whether trampolines inground are better than above ground for your household!

What Is an Inground Trampoline?
When you think about trampolines, you probably envision one that is above ground. This would be a model that is set up on the ground so that you can see the entire frame – including the legs. The mat is elevated so that bouncers have to climb onto it. It’s relatively easy to set up and requires no additional excavating or landscaping.
If you want to use trampolines inground, then you will need to dig a pit. This should be at least 1 meter deep with adequate drainage to prevent water from pooling inside. You will also need to construct a retaining wall around the sides. Once it is set up, you can walk onto the mat without climbing up onto the frame because it sits at ground level.

Setting Up the Trampoline
To set up an above-ground model, you’ll need a level space with no obstacles. Just follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and you’re ready to bounce.
Inground trampolines will require more setup. Once you have dug a pit, you will need to line it with a sturdy retaining wall that’s at least 120 mm wide. This keeps dirt from falling in and will support the fame, which will be bolted onto the wall.

How Does the Trampoline Look?
When it comes to aesthetics, inground trampolines are a definite winner. The extra work pays off because the equipment has a lower profile. It blends better with its surroundings and looks more inviting. You can work in decorative landscaping near or around the trampoline to add even more visual appeal.

Trampoline Safety & Performance
Trampolines inground win when it comes to overall safety. There’s more freedom when stepping on to the mat or dismounting. Children will feel less intimidated than they do climbing onto an above ground setup. Proper safety precautions should be applied no matter how you install your trampoline. There’s always the risk of falling. However, an inground model can reduce the risk of height-related injuries.

Custom-made Trampoline Mats

Are you struggling to find the right size mat for your trampoline? We’re here to help! We custom-make rectangle replacement mats!

Here at Topline Trampolines, we have been making all sizes of black poly mesh rectangular mats for over 50 years. Our replacement mats are Australian Made and designed right here in our Gold Coast factory.

There are a few things you need to know before you go ahead and order your new replacement mat. Australian made black poly trampoline mats and Chinese made mats use different wiring systems. Make sure you’re aware of what your trampoline currently has as you may need to purchase additional parts.

Wire Bar System

Australian made mats use the wire bar system, pictured below. If your old mat still has the wires inside, you can reuse these wires for your new mat. However, if your missing some you can simply purchase a pack of replacement wire bars.

Triangle Attachment

Chinese made mats have triangle attachments, pictured below. If your old mat has these triangle attachments you can still purchase a custom-made Australian mat! You will just simply need to purchase our mat with a full set of wire bars.

Measure Your Mat

It is important that you measure your trampoline mat correctly to ensure it will best fit your trampoline frame.

Installing In-Ground Trampolines

In-ground trampolines look fantastic and also reduce the chance of the wind taking your trampoline on an unexpected flight.

Are you considering purchasing an in-ground trampoline? Before you go off and purchase your brand spanking new Topline in-ground trampoline there are a few things you need to know!

Our In-Ground Olympic Trampolines are Australian made right here on the Gold Coast. They are installed by mounting the trampoline frame onto a pre-built retaining wall. Therefore you are required to build your own pit with a very sturdy retaining wall.


The pit needs to be at least 1m deep, preferably with drainage at the bottom to prevent the hole filling up with water.

Retaining Wall

The retaining wall needs to be strong and well built as it will be taking all the stress. The trampoline frame will be bolted down onto the retaining wall, so it’s important to ensure that the pit measurements are exact. Also, ensure that the top edge of the retaining wall is minimum 120mm wide to accommodate for the frame tube and lugs.

Contact your local builder or landscape gardener for quotes on building your pit and retaining wall. Please note that Topline Trampolines accepts no liability or responsibility for the incorrect manufacturing of the pit (hole). So please ensure your chosen builder or landscaper are fully equipped to do this job.
