Like to lounge in your hammock even when the weather isn't cooperating? The easy-to-use kit lets you create a relaxation station using any secure structure, from wall studs to sturdy posts. Available at REI, Satisfaction Guaranteed.
I don't have trees for a hammock and didn't want a metal frame so just an easy DIY project. 2, 4x4 posts. 8 ft tall each. 3' into the ground with cement. Then just 2 screw hooks and that's it! A hammock with spreader bars should be hung between 4-5 feet off the ground so mine is around 4 1/2. Tip: Rent or borrow an auger if you can, especially if you live somewhere with harder soil. The depth of the posts is key!
Look close at the detail in the different lenghths and arched header.Want to make this pergola but to hang our 2 hammock chairs. Love the hooks for hanging plants. Would be great with trellis panels on the back for privacy against the neighbors' yard
