In ground trampoline with deck! (Yard was sloped, so deck made it level all the way around tramp)
This is what we did with our trampoline area. Garden boxes where the plants will form a hedge to "hide" trampoline. Steps down onto stepping stones.
Getting kids outside. . .could landscape around the base with grasses/bamboo in pots?
kid friendly yard space. Trampoline level with ground!
A rear garden with interlocking circular zones- even the trampoline fits in with the overall shapes and with the umbrella colour.
