    You can make your own market umbrella stand, cement them into flower pots, tall plastic kitchen garbage cans, put them at the ends of a picnic-style table so they shade the entire area. You could remove the fabric and hang them like sail shades.

    Here's a diy stand under $15 https://www.instructables.com/How-to-make-sturdy-umbrella-stands-for-under-15/

    Depending on their size, cementing them into flower pots could provide a lot of shade! You could end up laying out pavers under them, some string lights and voila! Garden room!

      Thanks but they are too heavy for deck placement, they have to go in the ground. They are 2 huge beautiful Square 10-12' span COMMECIAL umbrellas.

    Hi Sandy, I would get two large planters and filling the bottom with large pebbles, and insert a PVC pipe that's wide enough to hold the umbrella stem in the middle. Fill the rest of the planter with potting soil and pretty plants suitable for your area. You can add wheels to the planters before adding the pebbles, soil, and PVC pipe so you can move them around easily.

      Using the PVC pipe will make it easy to remove since the umbrella will just slip inside the pipe and the large pebbles will add weight and keep the PVC pipe stable

  • Since they are probably pretty heavy, I would make a stand using concrete, pvc pipe, and a large container - maybe a 5 gallon paint bucket. You can also find commercial umbrella bases on Amazon, a patio store, or restaurant supply site.

      Cool...They are heavy and it's trunk is about 2.5/3" circumference. I know they have to go in the ground. They are 2 huge beautiful Square 10-12' span COMMECIAL umbrellas and cause I live in NYC, I need to be able to remove & store for the winter.

    Good ideas above for making a base but these are large umbrellas and should be inserted into a heavy table. If just in a base, the wind can blow them over. Find a table with a wood top (like a standard picnic table or wood rounds that wires come on) that can be enlarged to accommodate the pole.

    ou could dig a post-hole size holes in the ground where you will want to use the umbrellas, then mix concrete, place a slightly larger pipe in the hole and pour the concrete around it. Insure the pipe says at a 90 degree angle to the ground so it's upright. After the concrete has cured, place the base of the umbrella into the pipe that's in the ground.

    if you are wanting to use in in a table the pole could be cut below where the mechanism for opening/closing is and a smaller diameter pole/pipe coupled in.

    If your table top is plexiglass or acrylic, enlarge the hole opening to accommodate the umbrella pole. Lots of tutorials online. But don't try to drill tempered glass. Good luck!

    Cement a pipe into the ground and insert the pole of the umbrella into that. Our pole was 8 ft. and 3 ft. was put into the ground the pole stuck up 5 ft. Took care of the problem and cost (including bag of kwik set) less then $25.

    You can spray paint the umbrella itself for a new look.

    Cement a pipe into the ground and put the pole into it, if you want a table where the pole goes through it, then you can use a standard size table top made of wood or plastic and drill a larger hole. Glass will most likely shatter with drilling. An alternative is to have no central table and use lawn chairs.

    Plastic ? drain-type pipe with an endcap sunk into the ground but sticking above ground, maybe filled with concrete to a height that the umbrella needs to stand at. Maybe an extra thinner concreted section inside the pipe to help it stand upright. Or loose rocks? In winter take the umbrella out and put a paver on top so that no dirt gets into the pipe.

  • Do you have a back yard where you are? You mentioned being in NYC but also that you want them to be able to be in the ground and removeable during the winter.


    I live in a condo and have cemented free standing plant hangers into large flower pots and it's held up well even with tropical winds. However, the width of the cemented pole is very narrow compared to your umbrella stands and the span is maybe 4 feet max. I do think PVC pipe and cement are the best start but in order for it to stay put you probably need something tall or VERY solid. A cement table might be a nice idea because it will hold up during the winter and not blow over! Since you have two of them maybe start with a tall kitchen garbage can (or the like) line it with a garbage bag, put a PVC pipe in the middle (plugged so it doesn't fill with cement) and create a base that way. You could even get creative and paint it or add mosaics. Show us what you do!

    You can get fabric paint and spray paint the umbrella. If you embroider you could cover up the logo with spring flowers that are embroidered.

    Concrete stand will for sure be needed with this size of umbrellas
