How to make a hammock swing chair frame?

Veronica Arndt SewellShoshana


I have a hammock swing chair and i would like to use it in my yard. I have no structures to hang from in my yard. I thought of pressure treated wood but I don't want it to look out of place or start leaning or moving from its foundation. What is the best way to make a hammock chair frame so it looks good and is functional?

    How about a nicely stained post to hang the hammock on? You can plant some flowers around the foot to brighten it up as well.

    I agree with Shoshana. I would use 4x4 pressure treated and cement. If you buy a 4x4x10 that would give 5' post on each side. You want to make sure you calculate the amount of post you plan on burying. You could float garden boxes to post or embellish with some "glass yard art".
