The sun is coming out so it's time to put up those parasols, and luckily for you, here at Wowcher we have a great range of parasols for you and your garden to love!


What Is The Best Type Of Parasol?

There is no definitive answer to which type of parasol is best as it comes down to personal preference and what you want to use it for. We'll tell you a little bit about the parasols we have, and you can see which one you like the sound of! Firstly, we have cantilever parasols, which are particularly good for stretching the cover or the umbrella away from the stand to cover the area that you want, and leaving more space for you to move about underneath! We also have a Bluetooth speaker parasol, which would be ideal for garden parties and gatherings. If you want to feel like you're somewhere exotic then you'll love our Hawaiian parasol, which you can tilt to cover you as the sun goes down!

Are Parasols Worth It?

Yes, absolutely garden parasols are definitely worth getting hold of! Parasols usually don't take up too much space either, which makes them ideal for big and small gardens as you'll still have plenty of room to get around and plenty of coverage to protect you from the sun! They last a long time, and add style to your outdoor space and can usually be placed along with your other garden furniture. Whether it's an early evening dinner or drinks in the afternoon with friends, you'll be kept shaded as the sun goes down.

How Do I Choose A Garden Parasol?

As we said in a section above, it is mostly down to personal preference when you choose a parasol for your garden, but there are a couple of things that you may want to consider. Firstly, think about what size and shape you want and need. If there's only one or two of you that sit in the garden, then you probably don't need a massive one! The shape is more down to your personal choice, but make sure that it matches nicely with your pre-existing garden furniture, for example, if you've got a round table, a round parasol would be a good idea and the same goes for if it's more rectangular in shape. There are also different materials for the pole and frame, which again is more personal preference. The only other thing to consider is what type of parasol you want, see the first section or our deals above to see what parasols we do!

Do I Need A Cover For My Parasol?

Most parasols are weather-resistant, but it's not a good idea to leave them outside all year round if you can help it. If you don't have space to store it in the shed, then that's where the garden parasol cover comes in! As they are water and weather resistant should they get rained on they'll be absolutely fine, but we would recommend getting a cover to keep it protected as best as you can. As long as you care for it well, your garden parasol should last you a long time! Many of our parasol deals come with a cover or with the option to upgrade to include a cover, and if they don't then we also sell parasol covers separately!
