Hi, any particular reason to sand blast the surface? Why not water wash or acid wash it?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to How to Pick a Patio Umbrella That Performs
Umbrella SizeThe size of your umbrella will determine how much shade your space will receive. Think about how much shade you want and how much room you have. Overcrowding your patio with a too-large umbrella won't look or feel good. Designer tip: Landscape designer John D’Urso says umbrellas ideally should be table width plus an extra 2 feet per side if possible. For example, if you have a 4-foot round table, look for an umbrella that's 8 feet in diameter.
4. Stay cool with a big umbrella. An extra-large freestanding umbrella offers more flexibility than one attached to the table. Use it to shade the prep area (keeping food out of the sun), then move it to cover the eating area when it's time to sit down.
