In-Ground Trampolines

Northwest Indiana In-Ground Trampolines

Trampolines are a fun and exciting way to enjoy your outdoor space while also getting a bit of exercise. In-ground trampolines, also called sunken trampolines, are an increasingly popular option with homeowners due to the many benefits they offer over traditional above-ground trampolines. Shelton Group helps homeowners throughout Chicagoland install in-ground trampolines that are beautiful and last through harsh Midwest winters.

In-ground Trampoline Installation is Easy

In-ground trampolines are nearly identical to the standard, above-ground ones most people are familiar with. The key difference is that the metal frame supporting an in-ground trampoline is installed below ground, and a pit is created underneath the trampoline to allow it to flex as the user bounces. This means the jumping surface is at ground level, even with the rest of the yard.

The Benefits of Inground Trampolines

Trampolines are a fun way for children and adults to stay fit and offer an entertaining way for the whole family to spend time together outdoors. While in-ground trampolines are a newer option, they have quickly become popular for several reasons.


With no steps or ladder to climb, getting onto an in-ground trampoline is much easier than a traditional one, making them easier to use for many people. Additionally, if a person does fall from an in-ground trampoline, they are not elevated above the ground, giving them less distance to fall. For this reason, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons actually recommends that a trampoline jumping surface be placed at ground level to help reduce the chance of injuries from falls.

Safety enclosures are also available for in-ground trampolines. While this is less necessary when the jumper is at ground level, it can add protection if there are any possible obstructions nearby, such as trees. In-ground trampolines are also less likely to cause trips and falls in your backyard since there is less equipment exposed.

Visual Appeal

Sunken trampolines offer a cleaner look than old-fashioned above-ground ones because all the ugly, bulky metal parts are concealed. In-ground trampolines allow your family to fully enjoy your yard while still preserving the visual appeal of your home. 

In-ground trampolines can also be customized with colored padding, LED lights, and covers. The highly experienced landscape design professionals at Shelton Group can help you select the ideal placement and options for your trampoline to complement your home’s appearance. 

Low Maintenance

There’s no need to mow and edge around the legs of an in-ground trampoline since it is incorporated into the landscape design. This often adds to the ‘clean’ look they offer and makes them easier to maintain over time. The only real work required is during installation, and the Shelton Group takes care of everything for you.
