Hammocks have been a favourite place to sleep for hundreds of years. They cradle the body and swing softly to lull you to sleep. In Canada, hammocks have become a delightful addition to the backyard. You have many different designs to choose from. If you're lucky enough to have two sturdy trees at a close distance from each other, hang a hammock between them. All you need to do is drive a pair of sturdy steel hooks into the trunks.
No trees? No problem. Hammocks strung on free-standing frames are a great choice. These are easy to assemble and durable enough for long-term use. Do you prefer a flat style of hammock that is more like a camp bed? These types of portable hammocks also hang on a frame. You can attach some models to a pergola frame as well. Whatever style you choose, a hammock is a great way to enjoy the outdoors.
