How to create a sunken trampoline - little green fingers

How to create a sunken trampoline - little green fingers
I think a sunken trampoline has to be my favourite family garden feature. It's a simple enough idea but solves so many headaches. It's safer, less intrusive and popular with everyone. I have sunken a couple myself. Well, to be more accurate, I've sunken the same one twice (note to self - decide where to put the thing and don't change your mind after 12 months). So what do you do...? First, measure up - I would say buy a relatively large trampoline (ours is 14') but make sure that it won't dominate the garden. And that's it, except to say, sunken trampolines might be safer, but not so safe that you shouldn't supervise very carefully. Oh and if you want to see a couple of films about putting in sunken trampoines and how to maintain them, check these out below:

Sunken Trampoline - How to Sink a Trampoline in the Ground | Atlantic Trampolines Blog It is becoming increasingly popular to install your trampoline in the garden at ground level by sinking it into the ground. This has a number of advantages, firstly a sunken trampoline is less visible so will be less obvious and will not spoil the look of your garden as much as it might do otherwise. Also, with a sunken trampoline you do not need a trampoline safety enclosure, which can look unslightly and saves money too. Secondly, there is less distance for people to fall off a sunken trampoline and injure themselves and thirdly younger children can play on the sunken trampoline without needing assistance in getting on it and with less risk of them falling off. Fourthly, you will not need to move the trampoline at intervals to avoid damage to the grass underneath or when cutting the grass. One leading garden designer says, “I think a sunken trampoline has to be my favorite family garden feature. Here are some tips if you are considering sinking a trampoline in your own garden:

Underground cathedral (Wieliczka Salt Mines) Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce. The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia. Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Text by Steve Smith.

Tiny Polaroid Magnets | { Ambrosia Girl } Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself. But nothing like inspiration to wake one out of a reverie — or nightmare, in my constantly sick state. I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar. You will need: Cardboard (mine was the backing of a sketchbook — much thicker than the back of a regular spiral bound notebook) or 2-3 sheets of white cardstock or poster board spray-mounted together to use as a sturdy backing to the magnetsOpaque white marker (necessary only if your cardboard is not white) Craft knife Metal straight edge/ruler Clear packing tape or frisk film. Step 1: Download a Photoshop file of the Polaroid frames below. Step 2: Print out photos onto photo paper. Step 4: Trim out photos with craft knife. 487 Comments

Inuit Mythology Project Artwork for the INUIT MYTHOLOGY PROJECT by Inhabit Media, Nunavut The Inuit Mythology Project was founded to collect and preserve the culture, the legends and the heroes of the Inuit for their children. I feel honoured to take part in this exciting project. All images © by Inhabit Media Sky Garden House I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house. See more at Guz Architects
