There aren’t many garden chairs and loungers that are comfier than a hammock, and in our eyes it’s the ultimate addition to a tranquil garden. Whether you’re hammock is tied to a tree, or erected with two steel poles, there’s nothing quite like swinging in the air as you clear your mind.

It’s only when you own a hammock when you really begin to appreciate the little things in life, like a bird nesting in a tree, or the clouds changing shape. Most hammocks today are pretty cheap, depending on the size and materials used, and you don’t necessarily need a lot of space in your garden to facilitate it. Soaking up the sun is even easier in a hammock, and the great thing is you can sit up, lay down flat or on your side, and it’s perfect for all people of all ages.

If you’ve never consider adding one to your garden, there’s still time and there’s plenty more sunshine to come.
