As the weather’s getting warmer and you’re getting the itch to go outdoors, one of the easiest ways to upgrade your backyard and essentially ~transform~ it into an oasis is with a hammock.

To me, there’s no better feeling than relaxing after a long day outside, especially if you’re fortunate enough to have space, and to add a hammock is the ultimate comfy upgrade. Just take a moment to imagine yourself on a hammock outside right now β€” peaceful, right?

While we already love Wayfair as a convenient retailer to find affordable indoor and outdoor decor, there’s one hidden section you’re not going to want to miss. Wayfair has some of the best backyard hammock and swing options, and a majority of them are on sale right now.

If you have the space in your backyard, instead of an outdoor patio set, a hammock can be a great alternative that doesn’t take up as much space. Since there are several different ways to hang a hammock, whether it’s by drilling into a tree, stringing it with a rope from a hook in a ceiling (best for balcony hammocks) or securing with tree straps, you can find one that works for your space.

But before you settle on a hammock for your backyard, there are several different types to consider, including ones with a spreader bar, traditional hammocks, tree hammocks, chair hammocks, portable options or hanging chaise loungers.

Luckily, below we’ve rounded up a variety of the best backyard hammocks available on Wayfair to shop before summer begins.
