Rated 5 out of 5 by Val Lovely parasol. Unfortunately I had to send it back as it was too heavy for me to operate. I am in my 70s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ruby Sun has got it's hat on.
Very pleased with this Parasol.
It is a good size, and keeps us in the shade while sitting out enjoying our garden.
Used it twice already and its only April.
Easy to put up but would recomend buying 4 base weights, we have placed planters ontop of weights and it looks really good.

Looks very good we have put it up to try it and are very happy it's very well made and should give good long service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hopalong Great buy
This is a good sized parasol and seems very sturdy. We have screwed the base to our decking to save buying slabs to weigh it down. Very pleased with our purchase and well priced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hedgepig Does the job well
Easy to assemble and simple, free moving crank to tilt / expand the parasol itself. Does the job of protecting the LayZspa pool. The only drawback is the method of counterbalancing needed; you can either buy the high priced slabs designed for it (x4) or, if you're not bothered particularly with looks, buy 4 small paving slabs at a quarter of the price instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Romaniac Good but check details
This is a large and effective garden parasol. So far it seems good quality for the price, but note this sort of cantilevered umbrella needs weights to hold the base, which cost the same again. I don't think Homebase sell them though. This comes with a metal base that needs fixing to the ground or weighting down. Their other bases will not fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vivienne Fantastic Quality
Arrived at last, and what a wonderful product. I have split level decking with 1 section with a Gazebo which is lovely when under it, but the sun moves every hour on the hour and you cannot sit under the gazebo due to the sun glaring in your face. I decided to purchase this Parasol to see if it would make a different. Well it surely does, It is perfect for shade, Wide enough to cover a big portion of the sun. You can have it in 1 or 2 different positions. The Arm Lever is good and easy to use. Just a word of warning, Please make sure you either screw it down or hold it with weight, it does not take to the wind at all, it will topple over, and if not expected could be dangerous to anyone in the way. I would consider buying another one to put over my BBQ next year. Money well spent. Homebase done it again for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beth Looks good
I am on the whole very satisfied with this parasol. It looks good and is fairly easy to operate. The only real problem is that it waves about all over the place in even the slightest breeze. The umbrella should be weighted to stop this happening. It provides good shade.
