Flat-Level Trampolines

The Ultimate Guide To Flat-Level Trampolines

Whether you’re considering getting a flat-level trampoline or already have one and wanted to do some research first, you’ve come to the right place. There are a few things to consider when getting a flat-level trampoline, and we’re going to tell you all you need to know about them.


The trampoline kits come with a DIY installation kit. Though it requires a little elbow grease and can be time-consuming, installing a flat-level trampoline isn’t very difficult. However, we highly recommend that you get a professional to help you with the installation for safety reasons.

For example, a flat-level trampoline requires you to create a hole deep, wide, and level enough to place the trampoline properly. It may also need a retaining wall depending on the features of your property.

There is always the risk of falling whenever you use a trampoline. A flat-level trampoline significantly reduces how badly you may be hurt, however, as you wouldn’t fall from 10 feet in the air. Safety nets help to protect children and adults from falling out.

If you haven’t already got one, shop our flat-level trampolines with safety nets. We guarantee superior quality every time.

Our trampolines come equipped with spring covers. However, you should still be mindful of them when jumping; if not securely or adequately covered, you could hurt yourself if you land on or between the springs.

Flat-Level Vs. Above-ground Trampoline

There are a few marked differences between flat-level and above-ground trampolines.



While the price of the actual product may be pretty similar, flat-level trampolines may still cost you a little more than above-ground trampolines. Installations and possible permit requirements can increase the total cost of the product.



Flat-level trampolines are more time-consuming to install than above-ground trampolines. They require more work to ensure a level and safe installation (digging and leveling the hole). Above-ground trampolines risk being picked up and blown away by strong winds as they aren’t anchored to the ground.



If you’re in the market or a trampoline that is safe for exercise and doesn’t provide a whole lot of bounce, a flat-level trampoline is recommended. However, above-ground trampolines are often chosen by jumpers who are looking to achieve a certain height.


Flat-level trampolines require alterations to be done to your property to have them properly installed. We recommend getting a professional to dig the hole needed and any other technical work that can pose safety risks. As far as safety goes, if you’re looking for the safer option for children, a flat-level trampoline is the way to go; the risk of hurting yourself from a fall is significantly reduced, and with the addition of a safety net, it’s almost completely diminished.

Compared to an above-ground trampoline, a flat-level trampoline can be more costly after installation but poses a lower risk of being displaced by the weather. Once you’ve made your decision, check out our flat-level and above-ground trampolines. They’re the best quality in the business.
