If there existed an encyclopedia page devoted to “perfect sunny day,” the accompanying image would most certainly have two things: a hammock and a backyard. When you close your eyes and picture the ideal way to while away a leisurely day outdoors, can’t you see it? Bonus points if your vision includes you in the hammock — lightly snoozing with a good book splayed across your chest (while you rest your eyes, natch) and a big hat blocking just enough sun to keep you safe but still let the warmth sneak through to your face.
Now, open your eyes. Is your backyard missing something? Like, oh we don’t know, the perfect hammock? You can’t very well enjoy the lazy hazy days of your dreams without a hammock to hold you, which means your mission is clear. You need to nail down the type of hammock best suited to your family so that it will truly be at home in your backyard.
Scrolling through hammocks like Tinder for your backyard might feel a bit neurotic but, listen, it’s important to make a match. You may not even realize how many different styles, types and price points of hammocks there are out there — and you’d hate to waste time with the wrong one. After all, that’s time you could be kicking with your new hammock.
To get you started, scroll through the following hammocks broken down by type.
