The hanging umbrella is an alternative to the traditional garden umbrella. It is free standing, requiring a weight on the bottom to hold securely, and it can therefore be used anywhere in the garden. Ideal to put over a hot tub, BBQ or a table and chairs set, to protect from the sun or rain. The umbrella has a highly durable and corrosion resistant construction, making it suitable for the outdoors. Please Note: coordinating parasol base GL/GU.01/BASE available to buy separately, to keep the parasol secure. It's recommended to have 4 base segments to hold the parasol securely. Please Note: Please do not leave the parasol assembled overnight or during harsh weather conditions.
