I would like to hang, my Hammock. Unfortunately the new property doesn't have any handy trees etc.
So I thought I could perhaps secure it to some star-pickets. The ground is quiet sandy, and I don't have the option to sink a bag of cement on to the end of each picket.
I thought I would get 2x 8ft pickets, and beat them 2 foot into the ground -- leaving ~6 foot above the ground to secure the hammock to. Then add 3 more smaller "outrigger", pickets around each main picket to brace against side ways force.
To draw rough sketch of a overhead view. With the pickets in Red, the guy-wires in blue and the Hammock in the middle:
Will this work? If so: How tall should the outriggers be?
I was thinking 5ft, but maybe I would be better off with little 2ft ones and driving them basically the whole way into the ground?
