    ​This Jarder Parasol set is my preferred choice when it comes to creating your own shaded area whether its in your garden or another location.


    It is Jarder’s most expensive model but has some great features that similar types of garden parasol don’t.


    For me, one of the best features is that once you’ve bought this item there is nothing else to buy (unlike other brands).


    This makes things much easier and to be honest its a good feeling knowing that there are no hidden costs after buying it.

    The highest quality parasol is our first pick on this list. To be honest, it ticked all of our boxes - decent max height, study base and thick canvas parasol cover. 


    This is what we look for in a cantilever parasol. The added bonus for this one is that it packs away - making it ultra portable.

    This Cantilever Parasol set from TecTake is great value for money.


    If you’re in a rush and on a strict budget, we recommend this one.


    Also, while it’s not built for high winds we took one of our garden planters and placed it on the base.


    This weighed it down perfectly for medium winds!
