True - but it would give you more room inside, using the same amount of material...and a volume that shaped almost exactly like your hammock so it's an efficient use of weight.
But if you really want it to touch the ground, you'll need more fabric...not sure there's another way to do it. Just use the normal sized tarp with side pull-outs and get a hammock sock. JMHO.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
