Any tips on how we can reduce chance of grass dying where our trampoline sits.

The only way we managed it was to keep the trampoline moving around the yard - I know it's hard when they're so big, but it seems to be the only way.

Aside from moving it around , we have friends who put synthetic grass underneath theirs. It looks real but it never fades

Thank you, that is what I have started to do. It is just so big, it is one of the springfree ones.

When we were in Sydney, in our full sun backyard the Buffalo grass thrived under the trampoline so I moved it around to keep the yard green LOL!
Here in Adelaide it's as dead as doornails under it.
Must be yard sun/grass type ratio

We put pine bark under ours as it takes 2 people to move and we have no place to move it to.

We put bark under ours too. The smaller softer bark, like in children's playgrounds. The trampoline is in the back corner of our yard and it's been heaps better since doing this. No need to keep moving it around. It wasn't a hugely expensive thing to do either.

I read your post with amusement as yesterday I helped DH move the tramp as it is the only place in our yard where the grass is lush and green. We have had very hot wetaher thus far in Perth and the grass has been loving the shade so we were trying to spread the love. Different strokes and all that.
