What better way to relax and sway the day away, than in a hammock?

What To Consider When Buying a Hammock Stand
Hammock stands vary in weight capacities so check it will be strong enough to hold person or people.
The ideal size of a hammock stand should measure longer than the full length of the hammock. Make sure you check your hammock measurements before purchasing, if buying separately.
Decide where your hammock will go. If it is going to stay in the garden you may want to consider investing in a sturdy, more stylish frame which will look good and will withstand the elements. If you want to use it indoors, make sure the stand has rubber floor grips to stop it slipping on carpets or indoor flooring. Alternatively, if you want to be able to take it to places such as camping or on holiday, you will want a portable hammock and stand, which folds up into a carry case.
