The Living Umbrella’s canopy of plants keeps you cool because it shades you from the Sun’s rays and its leaves evaporate water (known as transpiration) which lowers the temperature. When the water is evaporated it goes through a change from liquid to gas, which removes a huge amount of heat from the space.
The temperature of a Living Umbrella’s canopy of leaves was shown to be as cool as a Tree, and much cooler than old-fashioned fabric/nylon umbrellas. And way cooler that black asphalt and red clay bricks…duh! You will be much more comfortable sitting under a Living Umbrella than a plastic umbrella.
These are twin Living Umbrella's(TM) located at Vaso's Kitchen in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Contact www.livingcanopies.com to find how you can have your own Living Umbrella.
