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. Give us a call today to begin designing and building the backyard of your dreams!
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.
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.
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.
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.
An in-ground trampoline can help make your home into a unique place where your family wants to spend time together. At Shelton Group, we make it easy to enhance your home with an in-ground trampoline by taking care of all the installation work for you. Our skilled designers and laborers will help you select the best location, excavate only what’s necessary, and ensure that the area around the trampoline is smoothed and restored.

Highly recommend this company! The company came within one month of me calling them and did their magic. They resloped the yard, added yard drainage, and installed sod all within a few days. Our lawn went from looking like a swamp after just a little bit of rainfall to a perfect green yard. Money well spent!
Excellent company! Very professional
AMAZING COMPANY, to say the least! We hired these guys in 2019 to maintain our 80 acre subdivision, And it was the best decision our board has made in the last 15 years. You can tell that these guys really care about the properties that they service. The crew is always on time, well prepared, and in uniform. If they…
This is the third time they've done work for me. The first was a small inexpensive job that I solicited three quotes for and Shelton was the lowest bid. I was impressed with the quality, attention to detail, and the work ethic. They just finished a second and more involved project. I was reunited with Mike, who will greet you…
We just had our driveway done with brick pavers and love it! Very professional and did everything they promised! Will be using them again for our patio and fire pit next year.
Shelton Group did a great job on my garden. They were very detail oriented and also valued my input, which was nice. They spent a lot of time with me deciding exactly what we were going to do. I immediately felt that they understood my goal.
We recently had Shelton Group re-landscape our back yard, and we couldn't be happier with the results! Just like the website explained, they talked with us to get an idea of what we wanted, and our budget. Then came up with a plan and an estimate. The crew showed up on the arranged date and completed the job in the…
Another fabulous job by the Shelton Group. They are my 'go to' for all landscaping projects - big and small. The crew is great ... hard working, on time, polite, efficient and most importantly, respectful of the property. I wouldn't use anyone else.
We had Shelton Group install an outdoor kitchen/living space in my backyard. They had many nice designs, and I was very pleased with the service received. Today the family is enjoying the fireplace, it has become a way for us to all sit down and bond together. Thank you so much Shelton Group!
