Oh, those lazy, hazy, crazy summer days – afternoons spent in the garden soaking up the sun, cool and comfy under a parasol to protect you from UV rays. What a dream. It could become a reality with one of these beautiful garden umbrellas

A well-chosen garden umbrella is ideal for creating an ambience in your patio or next to your sun loungers. At the same time relaxed and chic, it means you never have to worry about getting sunburnt or feeling hot. Bring beautiful hotel atmosphere right into your garden.

And these days, the choice is outstanding, from sophisticated to bohemian, tropical to contemporary. There is a garden umbrella for every garden area.

Some stand alone as a freestanding parasol or come with their own base, while others are designed to fit in a garden table.

Do I want a normal parasol or a cantilever?

Regular parasols and umbrellas have minimal flexibility – you can’t really tilt them to change the shadow cast. In contrast, a cantilever parasol can bend its “hood” away from the base to put its shade where you want it.

Cantilever umbrellas have the benefit of flexibility, the downside is that regular umbrellas are generally sturdier (if you live in an exposed, windy area this is a consideration).

What size should I take?

At least 2 meters to ensure adequate shadowing. 2.4 meters is the industry standard. Of course, if you have a larger garden, choose something wider.

Remember that a larger parasol will require a stronger base unit, so be sure to purchase accordingly. The base unit is included with some models, other garden umbrellas fit comfortably in a garden table. If you don’t have a table and the parasol doesn’t have a base unit then we recommend this option, the Aria freestanding resin parasol base, £45.99.

There is little to complain about with the parasol in anthracite. With a 3 meter wide perimeter, it offers a wide circle of shadow.

A wind outlet in the canopy prevents the cantilever parasol from being spun around – a notorious problem with these models. The base is included and ensures that the parasol itself is stable.

With a hand crank for opening and closing, it can be assembled and disassembled effortlessly. Easy to assemble, too. A great choice.
