Garden Parasols

Create a garden centre piece and place to relax, protecting your loved ones from the sun and rain.

Garden Parasol's key features

A garden parasol is an outdoor essential, keeping you, your friends and family cool and protected from the heat of the day. Versatile, hardwearing and attractive in equal measure, choose from a variety of models, colours and sizes. A garden parasol will provide protection from the weather whilst adding elegance and style to your outdoor space.

Provide important UV protection

Garden parasols provide much-needed UV protection on hot sunny days. If your family or loved ones are sensitive to the sun's rays, a well-placed umbrella ensures they can still enjoy being outside no matter how intense the glare gets.

How do you clean a garden parasol?

Before the garden umbrella is put away for the winter, it is useful to give it a clean. A soft brush is required, to clean away any detritus. A brush and a bucket of soapy water can then be used to wash away any dried dirt. Finally, rinse the garden parasol with a garden hose or bucket of water - make sure all the soapy suds are washed away. Finally, leave your umbrella to completely dry in the sun before putting it away. The textile consists of Duraclean® treatment and Teflon® finishing, with fluorocarbon coating, giving the textile protection against dirt, mold, and deterioration allowing for ideal water repellency and pollutants.
