New Outdoor Umbrellas for Poolside Haven

- September 20, 2021

This outdoor umbrella installation tells the story of when one just isn’t enough. After having one umbrella installed and enjoying it so much, our customer just had to have another!

Outdoor Umbrella #1

Set in the leafy suburb of Greenmeadows, the Western sun would beat down into this contemporary backyard. Our customer needed to protect their black outdoor furniture (and those sitting on it) from the harsh Hawke’s Bay sun. They were also looking to cast a shade over the pool for respite during the heat of the day. 

Like many people we talk to they had an old umbrella that needed replacing, so we started there. A 3×4 metre Shade7 Riviera cantilever umbrella was selected – one of the first installations we have done with this new rectangle model. 

This incredible umbrella has the ability to cover the pool and also be switched over to shade the furniture, thanks to the infinite tilt and 360° rotation.

Plus, with the 10 year fabric warranty against fading and rot, our customer has the peace of mind that this is one umbrella that will last and the colour will remain looking great.

Outdoor Umbrella #2

The first cantilever umbrella was such a hit for our customer that they called us up for another one. This time it was an umbrella to shade the spa pool at the rear of the section. Bliss!

To keep with the aesthetics of the space, a matching Riviera cantilever umbrella was selected in the same colour and size as the first.

Pro tip: Onsite we discovered the tiles were different levels, so we paid special attention to the packing on the base of the umbrellas. This ensured both umbrellas match in height to be in line with the fascia line of the house, for both a practical head-height and uniformity.

Ready to upgrade to your own high quality outdoor umbrella?

The durability and ease of use of Shade7 umbrellas is world class. If you are looking at one, we do recommend you save the hassle and get it installed by the experts. 

We have a direct line in with Shade7, can advise you on the best model for your needs and can carry out the installation to exacting standards.
