SANDWICH, MA ... Ann and David Anslem, owners of Weatherdeck Patio Umbrella Stands, LLC in Sandwich, Massachusetts, are pleased to bring their new Patent-Pending In-ground Patio Umbrella Stand to the outdoor living marketplace.

Designed on Cape Cod, and manufactured locally, this patio stand is literally groundbreaking. When adding an in-ground pool to their home on Cape Cod, Ann and David looked for an in-ground umbrella support system that would be easy to set up and take down; would not take away from the beauty of the pool paradise they created; would not be a tripping hazard; could withstand the excessive high winds Cape Cod often has; and would be durable enough to provide years of service.

“We searched everywhere and could not find what we were looking for,” said Ann. “We found some systems online but they were tripping hazards, difficult to use, or were tied to specific umbrella products. We were able to develop a design that was so simple, easy to use, strong, and best of all would fit with any patio umbrella with a pole diameter up to 1 3/4” diameter.”

“When it came time to begin production, it was really important to us to make it in the United States,” said David. “We found the right manufacturer locally and we couldn’t be happier.”

The in-ground patio stands are great for residential and commercial businesses. They could easily be installed and used in outdoor restaurants, bars, golf clubs, yacht clubs, and hotels and resorts. 

Weatherdeck Patio Umbrella Stands is looking to collaborate with local outdoor living stores, as well as professionals such as pool installers, landscape architects, designers and builders.
