This Vivere Double Cotton Garden Hammock is stylish, simple to set up and so, so comfy. It easily accommodates two people lying down and you can fit even more if you sit on it crosswise.
The garden hammock stand is constructed from heavy duty steel and it takes minutes to set up with no tools required. This means you can easily take it on days out or camping trips. It comes in a carry case making it easy to transport and store. The steel legs have rubber end caps which increase the durability, stop it slipping on hard surfaces and give it a sleek finish.

This garden hammock is very thick and durable and comes in a lovely multi stripe design that will give your garden a tropical vibe. It is also dyed with vegetable dyes rather than chemicals. The fabric is durable enough to be left outdoors in all weathers and can be hand washed to bring it up liked new. I would recommend bringing the fabric part indoors in very bad weather or over winter to extend its life, but this is very easily done.
The hammock stand features adjustable hooks so you can position it at a range of heights. Its easy to get in and out of and you can also move it around easily to catch the sun or find the shade.
This garden hammock is the most comfortable I have ever tried. Perfect for lounging in the sun and afternoon naps in the shade. You just might not ever want to get up again! It is a versatile and durable buy that will give many years of comfortable garden lounging and as such offers great value for money.

The garden hammock frame itself is made from solid larch and is sturdy and durable. The garden hammock is constructed from a high quality fabric. It is easy to get in and out of the hammock and it is wide and comfortable for one adult and several little ones.
The garden hammock takes a while to put together, but all fixings and tools are provided. Once constructed it seems very strong and yet is easy to move around the garden.
This garden hammock is very comfortable to lie in and provides plenty of room for one adult as well as plenty of cushions if you so wish. Overall, this is a stylish and comfortable addition to the garden.
Amanka Cotton Garden Hammock With Stand Review
This Amanka Cotton Garden Hammock features a powder coated steel stand for durability and it has rubber end caps to prevent slipping. The cotton fabric is both durable and comfortable.
The garden hammock looks very stylish with a curved black frame, natural coloured ropes and a brown hammock
The stand is easy to put together, taking just a few minutes and can be taken apart easily for storage over winter. At first, it seems like the fabric part is too short, however, with a bit of effort and two people, you can stretch it across the stand. After you have done this the first time it becomes easier and it ensures the hammock doesn’t sag. Once constructed it feels durable and robust but is also light enough to move around easily. It is very comfortable for one adult.
This is an attractive garden hammock that is easy to put together and take apart and very comfortable to use.
Garden Hammock Buying Guide
You don’t have to go on vacation to relax, a garden hammock is the ultimate in summertime chill. Lounging hammocks have a bar at each end to spread the fabric making them easy to get in and out of. They are usually made of weather resistant materials and most hold up to two people lying down. Garden hammocks add a nice feature to the garden, too, whether you choose tropical designs or a more classic canvas style.
If you want a permanent fixture in your garden, then a sturdy wooden stand may suit you best. However, powder coated steel stands are durable and yet easy to move around. Some even pack up in a carry case in minutes, so you can take them to the beach.
Garden hammocks are available in a range of sizes. A double garden hammock is perfect for one or two adults to lounge in and would be a perfect choice for a family to save arguments!
The actual garden hammock parts come in a range of options. Cotton is strong, comfortable and breathable and will last for many years. However, if you are lucky to have a hammock poolside you may want to choose a quick drying polyester blend fabric.
Can I leave my garden hammock out in winter as I do not have space to store it indoors?
Most garden hammocks are made of solid wood or powder coated steel, both of which are long lasting and durable even outside in bad weather. If you have a wooden stand, I would recommend treating it with a waterproof sealer to help it stand up to the winter elements. It is usually wise to remove the material part of the garden hammock and store this inside otherwise it may go mouldy.
