How to Hang a Hammock Without Trees

Here are four easy diy hanging a hammock without trees.

Use two Poles

You can use two strong poles positioned at a distance and cemented on the ground.

This method is very easy and all you need is two poles, concrete and your hammock.

Start by placing your hammock on the floor to get the exact distance your poles should be.

Once you have the distance and the best spot to put your poles, go ahead and make holes on the ground. The holes should be of reasonable sizes that is they should fit the pole and leave some space to put the concrete.

Start by placing your pole on the ground and move on to pouring concrete all round and level it out. Do the same to the other pole.  Let concrete to dry.

Once the concrete is dry, go ahead and put some J-hooks on the poles to hold your hammock.
