Choosing the right umbrella for you?


What to consider when buying a umbrella for your garden?

When deciding to purchase a umbrella for your garden, there are some factors to consider.

Space – How big is your garden? What is the size of the area you would like to shade? An umbrella is designed to shade the largest possible area, but not take up too much space,

Sunlight – Sunlight comes from numerous angles throughout the day. Therefore, your umbrella should be adjustable to follow the sun, ensuring protection from UV-rays at any time of day.

Wind is the diehard enemy of patio umbrellas everywhere: While you should always try to close your umbrella when the wind picks up, sometimes you might forget. Or maybe it’s raining and you don’t feel like going outside. If you live in an especially windy area, or you have a tendency to forget to close your umbrella, you need one with a strong frame.
