Yes you can close the umbrellas. and yes it does just hang when closed... but the umbrellas are able to be removed very easily. I can remove a umbrella in less than 30 seconds. I am also working on engineering a pivoting mount. I should be finished with this come summer.

The set in the foreground is from Room and Board which is made from recycled milk jugs. The wicker set in the background is from Babmar which is an outdoor online discount furniture supply distributor. dont use them much but fit the bill in this case.

Those deck tiles are an amazing product. There are a few companies that carry them including ourselves. The tiles are all solid Ipe. It's an amazing application specially to cover a concrete patio or to go over any flat surface. We really liked the design of this project by Chicago Green Designs and are very glad to see the tiles becoming more popular.

The Tiles you see here are a ipe tile designed for pedestal install... Meaning I can create a level surface with the tile even if the substructure has extreme elevation change. In the project the roof membrane this pedestal tile sits on has a grade pitch of 1" to 8".

There are many different types of drainage mats. What are you using it for planters?. Roof membrane? Against exterior wall? if you could be more specific I can direct you. Thanks

Cold winters are not a problem. If anything it is the harsh UV rays over time that breaks down turf. Canada...no problem ...company is called perfect turf.
