Grassy Yard Hammocks
It is the ultimate in backyard luxury - swaying in the breeze in a hammock while the sun warms your skin as you take that much-deserved nap. If you have your own little patch of grass, you will want to have a hammock where you can lounge and simply relax.

Cotton hammocks are the most comfortable, with more give and a somewhat softer feel to the rope, and can be used if you can easily bring your hammock in during inclement weather. Too much rain or dampness can damage the cotton threads, and if you are near the ocean, the salt-water breezes will wear your hammock out faster. Polyester and nylon are both excellent fabric choices if you will be leaving the hammock out most of the time. These are also comfortable, but with a bit less give to the ropes of the weave. They will last for years, however, even in tough weather conditions and stretch less than the cotton variety.

Insects and animals can also cause damage to a cotton hammock, so if you plan on leaving the hammock out most nights, consider the polyester or nylon models. Chewing will fray and weaken cotton ropes quickly, and rodents or small woodland creatures can do damage quickly. Check your yard for trees that can be used for mounting your hammock, carefully measuring the distance between them to make sure there is enough space to take into account both the length of the hammock body itself, the extension where the woven area meets, and the mounting chains. This will vary somewhat depending upon the style and size hammock you purchase so double check all of your information before ordering. All trees used for mounting a hammock should be at least 6 inches in diameter to support the weight of the hammock and any occupants.

If you do not have suitable trees or would prefer a more moveable option, mount your hammock on a stand. This also allows you to put your hammock in the sun if you want to rather than always being in the shade, as you would be under the trees. For any hammock you are considering, there are a variety of stands available, including painted metal and hardwood. A considerable amount of choice is available when putting a hammock on your lawn, especially if the lawn is a spacious one. Because there are fewer size and space constraints, you should consider an oversized hammock, particularly if you have a family. There is nothing more fun than piling into the hammock on a lazy summer afternoon with your spouse and kids. The oversized hammocks can safely support a considerable amount of weight (up to 450 pounds) so that everyone can pile on! The choice of a Mayan style hammock (no spreader bars) or the ones more common in the U.S. that include wooden spreader bars is a matter of preference. Either will bring you years of relaxation and pleasure.

You are sure to find the perfect hammock for your yard with the wide range of hammocks now available. These hammocks are all durable, attractive, and amazingly comfortable. That grassy stretch of yard will become your favorite napping spot, putting the recliner to shame.
