We bought a 12 foot trampoline for our back yard, and it's on a slight slope (not sure of the degree, but it's not much). The normal advice is to dig a bit of a trench where the legs are higher. For various reasons, that's difficult. Is there anything practical and safe that can be used to slightly extend the legs on the other side, or prop them up a bit? I'm pretty sure something like this could work, but I don't want to just put bricks and wood under there is something else is better suited. Any ideas?

Sandbags under and over the footing structure if possible. 300 pounds is hard to wiggle around or bounce any real distance.

Kids falling off trampolines is a thing with and without a slope. Digging would be best. Also also securing that thing well is another. Bad wind can flip one and you don't want that to happen to your house or kids.

Honestly if it's going to be there a long time for myself I would probably set it in concrete posts, like you do with basketball hoops.

Apperently the website says to use anchors instead of concrete for reasons.

Otherwise, I would make sure whatever makes it even be unmovable because there is no reason to increase danger because someone decides to use a brick for something else.
