What is the best surface to put a trampoline on?

Ideally, the trampoline should be placed on a soft surface to absorb the impact energy. Probably the best surface is bark or similar as it is soft, energy absorbing, provides good drainage and suppresses any weeds. There is also no grass to cut underneath. Avoid hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt.

Should I take trampoline down for winter?

How much space do you need around a trampoline?

Leaving your trampoline outside without protection will expose its springs or joints to moisture. Over time, the combination of iron, oxygen and water causes rust.

What do you do in a trampoline during a storm?

A trampoline fixing kit is used to prevent your trampoline from being blown over in strong winds. It basically “straps” your trampoline to the ground with straps and large “corkscrew” metal rods. You don’t have to leave it there all the time, but we highly recommend using one when the wind picks up.
