Furniture and Barbecue Buyer
Ian has worked for Hayes since leaving school, spending the majority of this time in the outdoor furniture department and like Keith has an in-depth knowledge of Hayes customers. He also has the same ethos at heart when buying garden furniture; will it be an acceptable price and quality? He also takes into account the changing fashions and environmental considerations, such as using recycled materials, being recyclable at the end of its life and is the timber sourced from forests which have a re-planting policy. Ian’s other passion is barbecuing which resulted in Hayes having one of the few Weber Worlds within The Barbecue Shop here in store. The Barbecue Shop has gained a reputation as being one of the best places in north west England to obtain all your BBQ requisites as it stocks everything you need apart from the food. Some of our best sellers are the Angus & Oink and Traeger rubs and sauces which can elevate your food from the ordinary to the absolutely divine. Ian regularly posts on Instagram the results of his grilling labours and it’s not just the usual barbecue fare of bangers and burgers. If you head to the Hayes Garden World Youtube channel you can view almost 200 videos Ian has appeared in with top BBQ chef Richard Holden. These videos show you that there is no limit to the creative dishes you can cook on your BBQ, whether it’s fuelled by gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellets. Almost all the dishes are simple and well within the capabilities of any barbecuer, they range from the Christmas dinner to puddings to vegetarian dishes.

Buyer's Guide to Cantilever Garden Parasols

Cantilever garden parasols are a stand out customer favourite for outdoor spaces as they provide shade and protection from the sun while offering flexibility and style. If you're considering purchasing a cantilever garden parasol, here's a buyer's guide to help you make an informed decision.

Cantilever parasols come in various sizes, typically ranging from 2  -  4 meters in diameter so first of all measure your outdoor space and determine the coverage required to ensure the parasol will provide adequate shade for your needs. There’s no point buying a 2 sq m parasol if you need to cover an 6 set dining set.

They come in a wide range of designs and styles to suit different aesthetic preferences. Look for a design that complements your outdoor space and matches your personal taste. Consider features such as colour, shape, and overall design to ensure it enhances the visual appeal of your garden or patio.

Investing in a high-quality cantilever parasol will ensure it lasts longer and withstands outdoor conditions. All our parasols are made from durable materials such as aluminum or stainless steel as these materials are resistant to rust and corrosion. Additionally, consider the quality of the canopy fabric, which should be UV-resistant and water-resistant for added durability. The parasols are not fully waterproof and are not intended to offer complete protection from the rain.

One of the key advantages of cantilever parasols is their adjustability. Look for a parasol that offers various adjustable features, such as a tilting mechanism, rotating canopy, and adjustable height. These features allow you to customize the angle and position of the parasol to maximize shade coverage throughout the day without actually having to move the parasol. We strongly suggest that if strong winds are forecast you take down the parasol or at the very least fold up and secure the canopy so that it can’t flap around.

Consider the ease of use when selecting a cantilever parasol, look for features like a smooth crank mechanism that allows for easy opening and closing of the parasol. Cantilever parasols require a sturdy base to ensure stability and prevent tipping over. Check if the parasol comes with a weighted base or if it needs to be purchased separately. Ideally, the base should be heavy enough to counterbalance the weight of the parasol. Some models may even offer additional stability features like ground anchoring options or the ability to fill the base with sand or water.

Consider the portability and storage options of the cantilever parasol, some models are designed to be easily disassembled or have foldable frames, making them convenient for transportation and storage during the off-season. If you have limited storage space, look for a parasol that can be compactly folded or disassembled for easy storage. All our parasols come with the Hayes warranty and a Customer Services team to help if you should need advice or help with assembly. By considering these factors we are sure you will have a quality parasol which meets your needs and will last for many years to come.
