Hello Lillya - Here is what you do - plant an evergreen tree - wait about 15 years and then cut off the top and lower branches. LOL! This is the stump of a very old evergreen tree. You could also get a 4 x 4 or 6 x 6 post and sink and cement it into the ground and then paint it and simply attach a tiki umbrella to it - you would get the same affect. Good Luck!

Such a neat idea. We're in the process of increasing the size of our pool area...and this is just the thing we were looking for...a beach! Looks like I'll be doing some window shopping today for edging! Thanks motherbear for heading me in the right direction.

Hello! I had a very large evergreen tree and the grass below had died. When I cut the tree down, I left a large portion of the trunk for my hammock. I put down vinyl landscape fabric in the circle shape and used the landscape tarp clips to hold it down. I then simply trucked in a yard of sand and smoothed it out. It has been about 4 years and it is still full. I simply turn it over and rake out debris. I bought the small log edging for a tiki look and it does a great job of keeping the sand in place and not in the yard! This year it was under about 36 inches of snow - I don't ever cover it. Thanks & Good Luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Get the Hang of a Hammock
2. Find the best place to hang it. Traditionally, a hammock hangs between two trees. Of course, not everyone has a great setup like the shot above. Luckily, there are a lot of great alternatives.
Amy Renea added this to Have a Rockin' Summer With a Hammock
Can't make it to the beach this summer? No worries. Section out a piece of your lawn for your own private beach and hang a swinging hammock from a faux palm tree. This setup is perfect for parents who need a little relaxation while the kids play in the extended sandbox.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Theme Gardens
It's a touch of paradise: a tropical beach in the middle of a Chicago yard. It may not be big, but with a hammock, chair and umbrella, plus lots of sand, what more do you need? The owner says it even holds up under winter snow with no adverse effects.Design tip: The owner simply rakes the area once a week to keep out debris such as fallen leaves, but you may want to cover the area or install chicken wire just beneath the sand to keep out both debris and the neighborhood cats.
