I purchased last year and was thrilled with the lime green color. That's about as far as my thrills lasted. The finial cracked after a few weeks, the rope has completely frayed, the umbrella has frayed spots in it and the briliant lime green now looks like dull algae water. If you have an expectation of one-year life, then I recommend. When I brought it out from storage for the second season, I knew it would not last long. No storage this winter as it's going in the trash and I really should have replaced it at the beginning of this year's summer season.
