VonHaus Garden Banana Parasol Review

We were sent this garden parasol to review a couple of weeks ago, but thanks to the British weather being typically changeable we've had to wait until today to give it a trial. We moved into our newly renovated house two years ago, and husband has worked hard on laying the patio himself. Now it's finally complete, we've moved the furniture back out and we are delighted to have something stylish to go with it.

This Banana Parasol has an overarching arm which offers more flexibility in terms of where you can position it. It is versatile enough to be placed not just over furniture, but to cover paddling pools or sunbathing and play areas too. The 3m wide polyester canopy gives UV30+ protection and as you can see (if you look closely at the picture above), it was a definite hit with our cat!

The parasol has a strong steel frame and a crank mechanism so it's very easy for anyone to put up or down, even if not feeling very strong. The height of the arm can be set anywhere along the pole which means the canopy can be angled to cover the areas needed. There is an auto locking function which means the umbrella is secure and the integrated air vent allows sufficient ventilation to prevent wind gathering under the parasol and blowing it.

We love the neutral ivory which looks cool and of course reflects the sun. This parasol is also available in burnt orange which could be a great option for injecting some colour into your garden. To secure the base of the parasol there are four individual weighted segments which can be ordered separately.

This 3m Banana Parasol is part of the new VonHaus Garden Relax range and can be found over on their website at To be honest, I wasn't aware of this website before, but there's a great variety of products on there, from gazebos and power tools to garden and indoor furniture, all good designs and keenly priced.

Disclosure: we were sent this parasol to review and asked for our honest opinion. All thoughts and words are our own.
