Building the yard of our dreams!

My husband and I recently moved into a new home with an amazing yard.  Some landscaping had been done by a previous owner/tenant, and there are trees galore, in fact our back yard is forested, with about 1/3 acre of protected wetlands coming up to within 10 yards of the house.  This makes for some interesting encounters with wildlife (our security cam picked up a VERY large cat near our back door the other night).  But two recent items we received for review are making the spending of time in our yard more pleasurable.  This would be a hammock and a swinging chair.   Both were offered at steep or complete discounts in order for us to provide reviews on Amazon, but the difference they have made in our yard has made me want to review them here as well.

The first is the Zeny(R) Blue Hanging Rope Chair by Natorytain . 

Zeny® Blue Hanging Rope Chair Porch Swing Seat Patio Camping Max. 265 Lbs (Blue, 1)

Lovely chair, and while this is not a photo of it on our patio (I would LOVE that patio), it is how this chair looks.  We have it mounted on a special hanger that my husband built on a tree in our yard.  It holds up to 265 lbs which means it is either for one or two very light individuals.  It is sturdy and well made and just adds a certain fun to our yard.  Very comfortable too!  The only thing I would change would be to have mosquito repellent  built in :P.

The other item is the hammock.  This is the

Driftsun® Patio and Lawn Portable Hammock with Steel Stand (Tropical)

This hammock was assembled very quickly, and is great for napping and enjoying cooler weather in our yard.  It is easy to move and will hold my husband without sagging.  I have always wanted a hammock, and now our yard feels like the yard of my dreams.  All I need to do is grow a green thumb and plant some flowers for next spring and summer. Marigolds would remind me of home and Mom’s rock garden with hens & chickens (the plant not the critters).  These both get five stars from me for their durable construction, as well as their bright colors that coincidentally went quite well with each other.  Hopefully we will have many years with this set up!

My husband received complimentary or discounted samples of these two items in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
