You’re planning to hang up a new chair in your garden this summer? Check out how! There are two possible options for hanging up a patio chair outdoors: A tree with a sturdy branch and a hanging chair frame.
If you want to save money on furniture, you should invest in a garden tree that has a thick branch. This furniture is often more expensive than an ordinary chair frame, but it can provide a lot of flexibility. You can always hang your chair in the sun or in the shade, wherever you like to.
Your frame should be made from durable wood, such as spruce, larch or ash. Whatever type of wood you select, please make sure to store it in a dry place during winter.
Hanging hammock chair on a tree
Hanging a chair from a tree branch is easy and cheap, but you should make sure it’s strong enough first. We can’t make any statements about branch thicknesses though, as it depends on the type and age of the tree.
If you are worried about the tree not being sturdy enough, you can either use a chair support or divide the weight of the hanging chair evenly over several branches. For example, you could use a clever rope construction to do this.
The swing chair with stand for outdoors
Hanging chair frames are an option for attaching a hanging chair if the ceiling of your room is not structurally sturdy enough to hold it (or if you want to make the chair a little more flexible and not have it in the same place constantly).
How to maintain your outdoor hanging chair
To keep your hammock chair from being a one-time purchase, make sure to follow these tips:
Hang the hammock swing in a shady spot. Regardless of the material it is made of, it will last longer when the sun is not beating down on it all day. When it’s winter time and you know you won’t be using it, dismantle it and then store it away. Make sure that the spot is dry and free of pests and rodents.
You should clean your rope regularly by scrubbing it with a soft-bristled brush and warm soapy water. Cotton ropes will shrink if wet, but the stretch back out when you start using them again.
With frequent refinishing, your wooden furniture can maintain its beauty for a very long time. While the frame and ropes are all together, separate them from the chair’s spreader bar. When you do this, be careful not to detach the spreader bar from the chair.
