Hammock Stands - How to Hang a Hammock with No Trees

from: Tatyana Turner

A beautiful, colorful hammock in your backyard or patio is a
great way to relax and unwind. But what if you have no suitable
trees to hang it from? No big deal: you can always buy a hammock
stand. Find out what your choices are, and how to select the
best hammock stand for your place.

What kind of hammock do you have? Does it have spreader bars at
the ends or not? It is important to realize that a hammock stand
designed for a hammock with spreader bars is not suitable for a
hammock without them. The reason is simple - hammocks with
spreader bars are flatter and usually hang much closer to the
ground than the traditional kind. Most sites that sell stands
for hammocks indicate whether the stand is for a hammock with
spreader bars or not, but if it is not clearly marked, ask the
retailer before making your final choice.

You have two major options - wood hammock stands and metal

Metal hammock stands is an easy and affordable solution. They
might be not as decorative as wooden ones, but metal stands are
durable, light-weight and don't require much maintenance. They
are also very easy to put together, whenever you want to get
some hammock time, and pull apart, whenever your hammock is not
in use.

You can usually get stands made of steel or stainless steel.
Steel stands are usually painted but, eventually, some paint
could chip off and the stand will rust. Stainless steel stands
are more expensive, but they are really a better option.
Stainless steel hammock stands will not rust and look like new
for many year.

Most metal stands are designed for hammocks with spreader bars.

Wood hammock stands add a touch of elegance to your yard or
patio design. They require some maintenance - it is recommended
to treat your wood stand once a year with water repellant. This
way the wood keeps its beautiful color. The most popular type of
wooden stand is the Roman Arc hammock stand, made from cypress
wood. It is also the safest and most stable design. You can find
wood stands for hammocks with spreader bars, as well for ones
without the bars.

Wood stands have to disadvantages, though. First, they are more
expensive than the metal ones. Second, large wood stands are not
portable because they are heavy.

How to hang a hammock with only one tree.

If you have one tree in the araa where you want to hang your
hammock, there is no need for a stand. Hang one end of your
hammock on the tree and get a hammock post for the other end.
Posts are usually made from stainless steel. They cost much less
than a full stand and also look less intrusive.

Now you see that you can hang your hammock anywhere you want,
even if there are no suitable trees. Hammock stands really make
life easier, and they don't cost a fortune if you order your
stand online with a discount.
