Australian summers are hot, and suitable shade is a must-have especially for outdoor dining areas. There are a number of ways to create shade, however umbrellas are an option which are moveable and instant.
Here we have rounded up three umbrellas which we love, each with their own characteristics.
Left to right: Ayr Umbrella, The Weekend Umbrella - Coral, Vineyard Cantilever Umbrella
Ayr Umbrella from Eco Outdoor
What we love about it: The solid teak and Sunbrella fabric design are modern yet timeless, adding instant style (and shade!) to your space.
The Weekend Umbrella - Coral from Basil Bangs
What we love about it: It's something different from your standard umbrella with cute keyhole valance detailing. It features marine grade fixtures and three coatings on the fabric to enhance longevity.
Vineyard Cantilever Umbrella by Tuuci from Parterre
What we love about it: The ability to tilt and rotate the umbrella 360 degrees is the biggest plus of this design, meaning you can have continuous shade as the sun moves. We also love how this oversized parasol suits both traditional and contemporary spaces!
Not sure what shade option is right for our space? Perhaps you would like something more permanent such as a pergola or natural shade created from strategic planting. Contact us to speak with one of our Landscape Designers.
