Garden Parasols & Bases

 
 

We can’t deny that us Brits are all sun lovers at heart, but even the most hardiest reptiles among us eventually need relief from a scorching day, and we shouldn’t have to saunter indoors for it! Cuckooland’s garden parasols and bases are the definitive cooler for your skin and headspace, while looking simply stunning on your lawn or patio.

Just imagine laying a garden sun lounger down in the midday sun of an Indian Summer – eventually, you’re going to want some shade! Choose a bright, jaunty parasol canopy for the job, fixed to a base that’ll withstand a sudden gust of wind during the day and be left standing on those nights that defy all meteorological err logic. 

Luxury garden furniture in general, whether it’s for you or a gaggle of friends, must be protected, and our smart, eye-popping or changeable parasols ensure you’re also never running from a wash of rain.

Garden Parasols & Bases FAQ's

Here are just a few of our more frequently asked questions:

  1. How do I set up my garden parasol?

  2. Easy-peezy. First, buy a matching base, if it doesn’t already come with your purchase. Choose a location first and then push the parasol pole into the base; then using the side screw functionality, lock the base unit onto the parasol frame. Depending on the model you’ve gone for, there’ll be a crank handle or push mechanism to extend the canopy, and a tilt button to adjust the angle.

  3. Can I make my parasol installation permanent?

  4. Although all of our parasol models arrive with freestanding flexibility, you can choose to cement it in the ground, should you want permanent furnishing. If this is the case, buy a parasol with its own ‘feet’ (i.e. not a heavy base, but standing implements) like those in the Deluxe Cantilever range. Remove a flagstone from your surface, plant the frame in the vacant area, and fill it with concrete.

  5. What’s the practical distinction between centre and side frames?

  6. Our parasols either have a pole attached in the middle of the canopy, or one that annexes from the side. The latter option gives the head of the parasol room to twist, raise and dip to your exact requirements, whilst also leaving more space under it to hang over a dining arrangement for example.

  7. How do I protect my garden parasol and base?

  8. The base will look after itself, so there’s no need to worry about that. Retract the canopy to the sides of the frame, and invest in a sizeable parasol cover and drape/tie it around the pole. A couple of our premier parasols come with a cover as standard.

  9. What about caring for my parasol all-year round?

  10. Brush any leaves or dirt off the canopy, and apply a mild detergent with a cloth before hosing it with cold water. Don’t use bleach; a simple scrubbing brush and regular cleaner is all you need for ridding mould and mildew. You only have to clean it once a year, before you pack it away during colder months – however, leave it dry (fully open) for at least a day before you pack it away.

When such greatness is hanging over your head, there’s no point resisting!? A slice of shading for the whole family is a must during a British heat wave (or even just a sunny afternoon for that matter). Treat the kids while you’re at it, and plonk some outdoor beanbags beneath these essential sun blockers.
