An outdoor umbrella, also known as a patio umbrella, garden umbrella, or parasol, is a type of umbrella used to protect against the harmful effects of the sun or rain while sitting outdoors. They are typically used in outdoor spaces such as gardens, patios, balconies, and beaches.
Outdoor umbrellas usually have a sturdy frame, which is typically made of metal, wood, or plastic. The umbrella can be opened and closed, and the opening and closing mechanism is typically operated by turning or pressing a handle located under the frame.
Outdoor umbrellas are typically covered with a fabric or polyester canopy. These fabrics are durable and resistant to water and sunlight, and are available in various colors and patterns.
Outdoor umbrellas are a great option for enjoying the outdoors while protecting against harmful UV rays, keeping cool in hot weather, and staying dry in rainy weather. They also add a decorative element and can provide a stylish look to your garden or patio.
