It's an issue many Aussie households deal with every day with little relief. I am, of course, referring to the very annoying problem trampoline owners face when their kids go to play and find hundreds of leaves that have been caught inside.

Thankfully, one Facebook user has found a way around the issue and has shared it online with user calling it "one of the best hacks" they've ever seen.

The user took to the Bunnings Mums Australia group and shared her solution to the common problem with a photo of a "roof" she made for her kids' trampoline.

"So sick of all the leaves, I made a roof!" she wrote. "3.6mts of shade cloth and a hundred pack of zip ties."

She continued, "The ring on top is about 310cm in diameter. I had to get the 3.6m wide shade cloth and got 3.5 mts in length. It ended up being about $65 + $5 for the zip ties."

"GENIUS," one very excited user wrote.

"[Probably] one of the best hacks I’ve seen on this page," another said.

"Love this idea!! Thank you!" someone else added.

"Ohh that's awesome!! I need one, sick of the constant leaves," another wrote.

"It makes a huge difference we had to do the same thing to ours," someone else said.

One user shared another reason she wants a cover on her trampoline, "Awesome, it's the bird droppings that are so annoying for us."

Others shared the way they'd solved the issue, including using Kmart's $16 parachute game as a cover, bedsheets and a trampoline cover from Rebel Sport.
