What are the different styles of backyard trampolines?

The two main styles of trampolines are spring and spring-less trampolines. The base of trampolines are typically made of steel, this material makes weather-treating simple and easy, it also provides a sturdy base for safe jumping. Spring-style trampolines are constructed with springs that are positioned along the outer edge of the trampoline, although most modern versions have pads or panels that cover these springs, the springs can still cause accidental injuries. Spring-less trampolines are designed specially to reduce or even eliminate the chance of accidental injuring caused by jumping on, or being pinched my springs. Spring-less trampolines are designed with rods that sit under the jumping matt, completely out of the way of the jumper, or elastic bands that act like springs but are soft and flexible. Backyard recreational trampolines are much bigger in size, they range from 8 to 13 feet in diameter and are available in rectangular or circular shapes.
