Do you have any outside dogs? You could clean it up and fix it in the ground for a shady spot for the dogs.

I don't really get what you are saying, but there really isn't any uses for old patio umbrellas. I guess if they are light enough, you could use the in the summer to take to the beach, or camping, river or lakes.

I have stripped the material from the umbrella, secured it in a large container of soil. I then planted Morning Glories and trained them to grow up the pole and out the unbrella spines. I then chose a variety of annuals and filled the container with them. Keep in mind that most Morning Glories do not like to be pampered with plant food or they will grow massive foliage but not many flowers, so choose your annuals accordingly.

What a great idea about planting morning glories and letting them grow up the pole and the ribs of the umbrella. I am going to try that. Never thought of that. Thanks.
