A stylish and well designed garden is sure to attract the attention of your friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Whether you decorate your outdoor space with garden arbors and arches, outdoor umbrellas, or other garden structures and shade equipment, your home is sure to become the pinnacle of outdoor entertaining, thanks to an unforgettable atmosphere for your family and guests.
Nobody wants to celebrate in the direct sunlight for hours. A garden umbrella is the perfect way to ensure you and your guests have appropriate shade to chat in comfort. An outdoor umbrella comes in a range of materials and designs. In particular, the frame may be constructed of aluminium, wood, or fibreglass. Aluminium provides a lightweight, durable, and good looking frame for your garden umbrella. Wood frames are expensive, but have a classy appearance. The wood should be treated for use outdoors, but it still won't be able to handle the same weather exposure that a metal or fibreglass frame can. A fibreglass frame is the most durable, flexible, and it's resistant to weather, particularly heavy wind where the flexibility of the frame is a good asset to prevent breakage.
A standard umbrella is around 8.5 feet. If you're placing an outdoor umbrella over a table, a standard umbrella covers a table with a diameter of 30 to 36 inches. For larger tables, you will need an umbrella of 9 feet or more. Outdoor umbrellas may also have a tilt action for better coverage. These features, as well as the canopy fabric and styling, will all play into your choice of umbrella perfection. Some garden umbrellas come with a base included. Others require a base purchased separately. The base holds the umbrella into position to prevent tipping or being blown away. The bigger the outdoor umbrella, the heavier the base needs to be to counteract the weight.
