Adding a patio umbrella is a great addition to your backyard oasis. They add shade and are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. All of our umbrellas come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. The Cantilever umbrellas are designed for the pole to be located on the side of the umbrella shade and is attached at the top. Cantilever umbrellas are perfect if you would like have some shade on part of your pool or if you cannot have the umbrella located directly where you need the shade. It's optimal for maneuvering where you need the shade the most. The cantilever umbrellas will need a base or some sort of weight to keep in upright. Bases are sold separately.
