How should I dig in my in-ground trampoline?

Digging in a trampoline, are you going to have it done or are you going to do it yourself? It’s quite a job to dig in your trampoline yourself, but it’s certainly not impossible. First, it’s important to determine whether you have an in-ground trampoline or an Etan UltraFlat trampoline. Do you have an in-ground trampoline? Then this page is the right place for the step-by-step plan on how to do it. Do you have an UltraFlat trampoline? Don’t worry, click the button for the step-by-step plan.

Determine the location

Determine the location

Since we’re talking about an in-ground trampoline here, it’s important to think well about the location where you’re going to place the trampoline. Because yes, you already guessed it, relocating the trampoline after digging it in is out of the question. For safety reasons, we advise you to keep at least 2 meters free around the trampoline and at least 3 meters above it. If you don’t have this space, we advise you to soften the area around the trampoline and remove any obstacles.

Have you determined the location? Then the next step is to measure and draw the hole. Use the following measurements for this. Do not make the hole too small or too large. This way you will maintain the solidity of the ground.

Dig the deepest point

Dig the deepest point

Did you measure and draw the hole where you want the trampoline? Well done! It is now important that you dig to the deepest point of the trampoline. This deepest point should be in the exact centre of the hole to be dug. Start digging here and try to dig your way out from a deep point. This way, you will have a good result and you don’t need to reinforce the wall unnecessarily. For the dimensions of the hole and the deepest point, you can use the illustrations below.

Make a bowl-shaped hole

Make a bowl-shaped hole

Did you dig the deepest point of the hole? Then the next step is to dig it out into a bowl shape. This is an essential step for ensuring that the wall construction retains its strength. However, the bowl must be deep enough in all places. An example to make this clearer:

Suppose you have a 305cm or 10ft Etan Premium in-ground trampoline. It has a minimum depth of 65cm in the middle of the hole. You dig from that point to the outside. Make sure you dig out in a bowl shape, as shown in the picture on the right.

Digging a hole is not difficult, but it is important that you always test whether you have dug to the right depth before letting the children jump on it. Do this by jumping up and down on all spots of the trampoline. Are you not touching the bottom? Are you confident that the hole is deep enough? If not, dig away an extra bit of sand. Otherwise, your hole is ready and you can place the trampoline over it. Don’t forget to anchor it! Your in-ground trampoline is ready and the kids can go crazy! Have fun jumping!
