Garden Hammocks

By admin On June 30, 2008 Under Garden Accessories

When you think of a hammock, you probably have visions of one suspended between two palm trees on a desert island. Well, with the range of garden hammocks that are available you can recreate this without the need of palm trees, or any trees for that matter, in the comfort of your own garden.

Garden hammocks are a wonderfully relaxing way to lounge in the sun, and there are a large number of styles available. With this amount of choice there is sure to be one to fit your style and budget. The most basic types of garden hammocks available consist of a tubular metal frame and heavy duty fabric hammock. These can be assembled in a matter of minutes and are extremely light weight. You can move the hammock into any position in your garden easily, and dismantle it quickly for storage during wet weather or winter. Some metal frames are telescopic which allows you to change the height and length of the frame to fit your individual needs. The frames are durable and hard wearing. The majority of metal frames are made from steel which has a protective coloured coating that wipes clean.

Other frames are available for garden hammocks that are made from wood. These come in a variety of colours and styles, depending on the type of wood used. Weatherproof treatments and wood preservers can be reapplied every few years to extend the life of the frame. They can also be painted with coloured wood paint to match your preferred colour scheme. These frames, especially the heavier woods, are not designed to be dismantled frequently, and need at least two people to move them around the garden. However, they are far sturdier than some of the more lightweight metal ones and far more stylish.

The hammocks themselves are made from a heavy duty fabric that can be treated with a weatherproof coating. This can be reapplied after washing. There is a large choice of different styles and colours of fabric available from the most basic cream colour to a more eye-catching multi-coloured stripe to ensure that there is one to suit you. The garden hammocks are available in different sizes from children’s to those capable of holding two or more adults comfortably. If you are looking for something a little more unusual than a traditional sun lounger to enjoy the sun in then a garden hammock is the perfect choice. They are comfortable and make a feature for any size of garden that adults and kids will love.

If you prefer to be seated, rather than lying down, then a garden swing is an alternative style to the garden hammock. These are available in two or three-seater versions and have a sturdy metal frame to allow the seat to swing gently. A built-in cover helps keep you comfortable in the shade as you rock back and forth. Removable seat cushions are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns to compliment your colour scheme and allow for easy cleaning.
