How to create a hammock area to steal a moment…
I still have one more hammock to hang before I can complete this area. Then I will mulch it in and add a path and a few native plants. Like I mentioned previously, I am systematically working my way through the backyard space by space. My design goal is to create a LIVEABLE and low maintenance, no-lawn backyard. I want space for all of the things we love, and a space that is comfortable as well. Last year was the front garden’s year – this year is the back garden’s year.
I dug the hole to set the post 3 feet deep, this is essential. Don’t skimp here, you want it to be sturdy. The rest of the method was essentially the same as when I built the cedar post and hog panel fence. Here is a closer look at the hardware I chose on the post side.And here is the tree-side hardware and rope. Wrap the rope twice, and get a nice soft, fat one to be kind to your tree!
That is it y’all – a very comfortable and relaxing area, that also looks beautiful and ate up more space. On to the next area….I am breaking things up in small manageable chunks.
A special thank you to my Daddy’O for helping me. Love you dad! Oh and thank you to Danny and Evan for this beautiful gift that you gave to me – almost 8 years ago when I arrived like an alien to Texas from Canada. xo
