Will a trampoline ruin artificial grass?

We are planning on putting my daughter's trampoline on the artificial grass. Do you think that's okay? or will it ruin the artificial grass?

A trampoline won't ruin artificial grass, as a matter of fact, a lot of backyard and playground designs have incorporated trampolines with artificial grass and such applications work out great. Here is an example of such application:

We would recommend the followings when having trampoline on artificial grass:

1. Make sure the entire area is big enough

2. You will need to install lawn pads underneath the artificial grass. our lawn pads come in with 3 thickness: 3/4", 1-1/4" and 2-1/2", the thicker of the pads, the better of fall ratings: if you use 2-1/2" thickness lawn pads under the grass, the fall rating is 8 ft., in another word, technically people won't get hurt if fall from 8' height onto the surface. Here is the link for our lawn pads:

Thanks for this info. We are also looking at putting a trampoline on it and don't know that we need lawn pads.

Very nice and looks like real grass.

I don't think a trampoline would ruin it as long as it's properly installed
