It’s spring Jim but not as we know it.

Here we are again, that time of the year where our optimistic little faces peer out at the garden and dream of the long hot summer ahead. As the cherry blossom trees give a cheery wave you can be grateful that someone planted them just the right distance apart for your trusty hammock. But wait! Someone chucked the poor hammock into a corner of the damp shed without drying it out and now it’s covered in mould and mildew. Aaahgrrrrrr 😡

Don’t panic friends, we have just the solution for you. Have a browse of our Garden Hammocks section, full of hammocks with weatherproof fabrics that dry quickly and are resistant to UV damage. Whilst you’re there treat yourself to some Tree Friendly Straps to make hanging your new hammock quick and easy and kind to the trees.

As usual on you will find a plethora of comfortable ways to hang loose. We have some superb new soft to the touch organic cotton hammocks in very attractive patterns. We also have an expanded range of stands for both hammocks and chairs. Everything you need for those lazy days ahead.

We got de winter blues

Winter. Doncha just hate it? All roaring log fires, oversized knitted cardigans and muddy labradors, pah! Give me an unseasonal heatwave and a hammock in the shade to make me happy.

Anyway, not much we can do about it so unless you’re lucky enough to be jetting off out foreign somewhere (if so check out the world’s lightest travel hammock here) then we’ll just have to tough it out….but not so fast amigos, maybe we can get a bit of hammock time whilst the rain lashes the gaff and the garden frosts over. Carry on reading for some wintertime hammock solutions…

Well, wadda ya know? Hammocks just got cheaper, loads cheaper and it’s not just hammocks it’s everything on the whole website. Most companies when they have a sale, discount heavily the gear they can’t shift and knock nothing at all off the stuff they know will sell anyway. We have a different way to do it, partially motivated by laziness we just slashed 20% off absolutely everything.

This means you can save a bundle if you’re quick and get exactly the hammock you want. Remember, it’s the end of the season and we have lower stock levels than earlier in the summer, so if you’ve had your eye on one of our gorgeous Globo chairs with a stand (usually €999) then pick it up now for €799 saving €200! Our bestselling Ticket to the Moon Original hammock is now just €52. Even accessories are discounted.

Like all sales (except Harvey Norman for some suspicious reason) this sale has an end date. It ENDS SEPTMEMBER 18th and of course some of our more popular products will sell out before then. To nick a catchphrase from another company addicted to shouting “SALE”, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Chillax for less swingers.

Well Hung

Two trees 3 to 4m apart in your favourite part of the garden is a rare and wonderful thing. Remember that distance the next time you’re planting trees. If you don’t have the patience to wait for trees to grow let us show you a few clever ways to get swinging.

What you hang your hammock off doesn’t need to be trees. It just has to be strong enough to hold your weight. Think fence posts, washing line poles, balcony railings, that sort of thing.

Most hammocks are around 3m when hung but if the distance is further you can use rope to extend it and if it’s just a bit less than the 3m you can simply hang it a little more U shaped. Click on this video link to see a clever way of hanging a hammock using Ticket to the Moon’s unique adjustable fixing system.

You don’t always need something that you can get a rope around to hang a hammock. Hang it off a wall inside or out using our hooks and wall plates.

Here’s something ingenious, you want to hang your hammock but you only have one tree………………….. use one of our Half a Hammock Stands. Tie one end to the tree or whatever and use the Half a Hammock stand for the other end. See the product listing here for details.

How about sinking a couple of posts into the ground at just the right distance apart. Full sun or partial shade? Or, get creative and put a triangle of posts in the ground, sun, shade or 3 hammocks up at the same time.

New hammocks will have a small amount of stretch in them the first time you use them so it’s always a good idea to put your posts slightly further apart than too close, it’s easier to add rope to reach the post than to shorten the hammock when the posts are in the ground.

And finally, if you’d like total freedom to put your hammock wherever you desire then you can buy one of our quality stands. Have a look in the Stands section of the store but please check that the stand you order is compatible with your hammock. Email if you’d like any advice from a Hammockologist.

Here’s some great tips and advice:
