Every patio umbrella needs a sturdy stand to keep it in place. Our selection features bases in a variety of materials – some that come weighted and others to which you’ll add sand, bricks, or any other material of your choice to provide stability.
Coming on board is the FiberBuilt Base, a 55-pound model that’s made of sturdy concrete. It can accommodate poles of up to 1.75 inches in diameter and boasts a stylish, sleek build that’s free of embellishment and will match virtually any backyard décor. You can choose from finishes in black, bronze, beige, or white. And it can be bought with confidence, thanks to its one-year warranty.
Moving into the top spot on our list is the TropiShade Steel Plate, which is great for those who don’t want a model that competes for precious space with everyone’s feet. Unlike concrete or cast iron models, this one leaves you free to add weighted material of your choice, such as bricks or sandbags.
Since it’s currently unavailable, the Sunjoy Patton Square leaves the list at this time.
