Plant lovers should take advantage of this Abba Patio umbrella base or stand that rounds up as a planter that weighs up to 150 pounds when filled with sand or soil with inbuilt drainage holes at the bottom.

What we liked
- The brown TIGER Drylac powder coat finish is adorable and will ensure your base doesn’t rust, corrode, chip, or peel even after prolonged use since it is weather resistant.
- It features a solid, heavy-duty, and durable construction with two lockable wheels for moving it from one place to another. It would be impossible to move it once filled with sand or earth as it measures 150 pounds when filled.
- It will hold your umbrella pole firmly, thanks to the heavy-duty adjustable tube with two hand-turned securing knobs.
- It has four drainage holes to ensure your plants are not waterlogged. However, it needs more holes.
- Not ideal for people who want to use a small table umbrella. It may not provide the much-needed legroom.
- Once filled with sand, rocks, or soil, it is not easy to move since you cannot tilt it without using your umbrella pole. It would be better with a handle
- Its interior finish is jagged and not pleasing.
- Some users have complained about it rusting, especially those in areas where corrosion is high.
What users are saying
“Good product. I bought a 2d one but could use some improvement. 1st, you MUST fill it with heavy stone, sand, or dirt to prevent cantilever umbrellas from tipping. I placed 3 bricks on the bottom of the first one. Then I half-filled it with rough, large gravel stone for drainage and topped it with potting soil. My umbrella went nowhere. Unfortunately, once filled, I couldn’t move it. Wheels didn’t help because there was no way to tilt it without using the umbrella pole. I tried to use a dolly; it was too deep, tipped over, and spilled all that gravel into the grass.” Amazon.com
“It’s very solidly built. The wheels also appear to be very good design. The wheels are smooth-rolling, like it!” Abbapatio.com
“We bought three of these, and we are ecstatic about how great they look and that our large umbrellas don’t blow over anymore.” Amazon.com
“This was great in theory. Even full, with a strong gust of wind, the umbrella went down. The base tended to rust very easily and was a little lower than I would have liked.” Overstock.com
If you need a stand with a place where you can plant your lovely flowers or grass, this Abba Patio umbrella stand/planter is an excellent choice. It is easy to move around and will perfectly match your garden, patio, or lawn.
