Discover some of the best hammocks and outdoor swings to help you create a wonderful hammock oasis in your own backyard!
First off, I want to thank you so much for your love on our hammock backyard oasis! I’ve been out in the hammock daily and even the boys were swinging in it last night. Today it’s been raining pretty much non-stop since lunch so I will have to skip it this evening. But there’s always tomorrow right!
A ton of you were excited to replicate this retreat for your own backyard. So, I wanted to give you a helping hand. I’ve put together a great roundup of my favorite hammock stands, hammock styles and even some outdoor swings. All of them will help you create a fabulous hammock oasis in your very own backyard!
So let’s break it down…
Hammock and Chair Stands
The base to any great hammock is a quality stand. We went with a teak wood stand that has held up great over the years!
Basically when it comes to selecting your stand, you have two different style options. Wood stands that are often made of teak or pine. Or there’s a steel option. Both seem very durable. So it’s just choosing which look you prefer for your yard.

Hammocks and Cushions
Now here comes the fun part – choosing your hammock style. There are a ton of different options to pick from in this department.
There’s the traditional rope style which reminds me of a hammock you would find on the beach. Canvas, linen and polyester are popular materials for hammocks as well.
And if you want your hammock with more padding, there are cushions! That’s right, with a hammock pillow top you’ll feel like you’re lying in bed – but you’re outside!

Chair hammocks are a fun spin on the traditional hammock. I think their best feature is their size. Because they are smaller, you can fit them almost anywhere you want. Which makes them perfect for under the trees or sitting on your back yard deck.
Another bonus feature of a hammock chairs is they often can be installed inside the home as well! 🙂

Chair and Porch Swings
If you want a little more support in your outdoor seating, chair and porch swings are super nice. Now before you start thinking that porch swings are outdated, let me just show you this swing.
That is not your grandparents porch swing! It has a very modern look and I would put this on my porch in a heart beat. 🙂
Now if your porch is on the smaller side, chair swings are great option. We actually have this chair in the boys bedroom.
