As the weather begins to warm up, it's time to start enjoying the outdoors. With the cold months behind us, the windows in our homes can be opened once again and we can play once again in our backyards. When the sun begins to shine a lot brighter and a little bit longer, playing outdoors and talking a nap on your backyard hammock is the place to be.
Outdoor Hammocks, were first used between 450-404 B.C. by one of Socrates students. Sometime in the 1700s, it is reported that Christopher Columbus brought the hammock back to Europe from the islands he had explored. Hammocks were originally constructed with tree bark sisal leaves. Today's hammocks are constructed with fabrics such as cotton, polyester, Nylon, Olefin and Nylon Silk. The design styles have improved, along with the many fabrics used.
Outdoor Hammocks can be of different types, including the portable hammock, hammock chair, and hammock swing. Portable hammocks are made of a lightweight material that is easy to carry around. Still, the material is sturdy enough to hold up the weight of one person properly. Portable hammocks often ship with hammock posts, so you will not need to hunt for trees that are strong enough and at the right distance from one another when you are looking for a relaxing nap on the beach.
A hammock stand is made of wood or metals like stainless steel or aluminum. When purchasing a outdoor hammock stand, make sure it is strong enough to support your weight. Also, it should be of the correct type. Hammocks with spread bars need a different type of hammock stand than hammocks without bars. Make sure the stand you purchase meets your requirements.
Outdoor Hammocks, are perfect for relaxing after a busy day, or simply for spending a lazy day napping outside home. With proper usage and maintenance, hammocks can be perfect accessories to your home for many years.
