8 Backyard Trampoline Landscape Ideas
When designing your backyard with a trampoline, remember that safety comes first! Where you assemble your trampoline is crucial for the safety of your children.
While you want your backyard to look amazing, you don’t want to do it at the expense of your little jumpers. When assembling a trampoline, make sure to:
- Select a clear, level area in your yard for the trampoline,
- Ensure the slope doesn't exceed three degrees if the spot is not level.
- Provide 3-5 ft of safe lateral clearance around the trampoline, avoiding hard obstructions like fences or sheds.
Ultimately, where you place your trampoline is up to you. However, following the recommendations above will ensure that your children are as safe as possible while jumping.
1. Small Backyard Trampoline Idea
Let’s say you bought a small trampoline, like the Springfree Compact Round Trampoline. You want to make the most out of your space.
We love how this family made the most out of a relatively small space. Your kids would surely love running on the colored circles as they prepare for takeoff on the trampoline!

2. Simple Backyard Trampoline Idea
There’s nothing too crazy about this one, but its simplicity works with the backyard. It seems like this family wanted a designated spot to put their Springfree.
The advantage to oval trampolines is their able to fit in a narrow space. If you’re looking to place a trampoline in a spot that doesn’t take up the whole yard, finding a spot like the one above could be ideal.
3. Trampoline/Hot Tub Idea
This backyard trampoline idea works well if you have a hot tub. The great thing about this idea is the kids could be jumping on the trampoline while you supervise from the warm embrace of a jacuzzi!
One of the trampoline safety rules you must adhere to is supervising your young children. Backyard trampolines, especially Springfree Trampolines, are safe so long as they are used reasonably, and rules are followed.

4. Trampoline/Pool Idea
Let’s say you have a swimming pool and want to augment the area around it. A pool + trampoline side-by-side just might be your kids’ dream backyard. Also, the lights streamed around the top of the trampoline are a great touch.
5. Trampoline/Garden Idea
A trampoline in a garden? Why not?
As strange as it might sound, it works in this backyard. The greenery mixed with the trampoline on top of the surfacing is a unique touch that stands out in a good way.
Note that for a Springfree Trampoline, you don’t need to put any special surfacing, like rubber mulch, underneath the trampoline. Grass or turf is perfectly fine to install on.

6. Trampoline Sanctuary Idea
We like this one because it gives the feeling of being in a comfortable sanctuary. The trampoline is placed in a safe and enclosed area, with pretty landscaping around it for good views.

7. Trampoline Decorating Idea
Decorating a trampoline is one of the most fun ways to transform your trampoline beyond just a bouncing surface.
One of our favorite ways to do this is decorating for a movie night. Hosting a DIY backyard movie night is relatively easy to do and can add a different environment for your kids to enjoy their favorite movies!
There are many activities you can do on a trampoline, including exercising, playing trampoline games and chalk drawing.
8. Trampoline for Birthday Idea
Though not a permanent backyard trampoline idea, many people opt to have trampoline birthday parties for their kids. It’s the perfect time to get creative and celebrate a child’s special day.
We also love the placement of the trampoline safely away from all obstacles and in a shaded area.
Did you know? UV light from the sun is harmful to the components of a trampoline. Springfree Trampolines undergo extensive UV treatment to address this issue, including on the trampoline net and mat. Make sure your trampoline has UV protection or consider placing it in a shaded area.
Bonus Idea: Customize Your Backyard Trampoline
If you don’t think the traditional look of a trampoline will fit in your yard, we at Springfree offer advanced trampoline customization. You can choose from seven different colors, from simple all black or gunmetal:
Or to more robust colors that mirror that of your favorite sports team or color combinations:
