    permanent outdoor hanger/stand

    Searched older posts about DIY stands and all I saw was portables and indoor stands. Anyone make a set up of 4x4's or steel pipe ( I have both on hand) that's permanent in your backyard? Would appreciate any and all info! Thanks!!!

    2 fenceposts sunk in the ground 15 feet apart work extremely well.

    Put a couple planters on hooks hanging off the side opposite your hammock and the Mrs. may even approve of it.

    This resembles a lich gate...for those that could work one into a landscape, it would make the coolest hammock stand, ever.
