Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it Love this clothes dryer.  The metal pipe that was supposed to be hammered into the ground didn't work in the rocky Adirondacks.  My husband dug a hole and sunk a 3' length of 2" PVC pipe and backfilled it with gravel to hold it in place.  The black plastic piece that fits into the included metal anchoring piece (that we destroyed) also fits into the PVC pipe.  The clothesline still turns to catch the breeze and it is solidly anchored in the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I purchased this after searching to replace my old clothesline. Other clotheslines were small & poorly made; they felt like they might last one summer. This clothesline is big & sturdy. It is not heavy; I can put it away after using it. August 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product My college-aged and energy conscious daughter talked me into buying this umbrella clothes dryer after buying a water and energy efficient washer. We just couldn't contemplate using an energy-hogging dryer. I am so glad I did. The set-up was relatively easy (we did use a sledge hammer), and the umbrella clothes dryer seems stable. It turns easily so hanging clothes is not difficult. I am so glad to have this product and highly recommend it. Added bonus - clean and fresh smelling clothes and linens! You can't beat sunshine and a nice breeze. April 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I love this product! I ran out of clothes pins before I ran out of space to hang clothes! Well made, easy to assemble... So much better than my previous clothesline that hung from my house to a post! I love it! September 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 Steadfast and long-lasting We've had this up in our backyard for years now, and it's still in great shape. Holds a lot of laundry, strong, well-made. My only problem has been that when I have forgotten about the laundry for a few days it can get sunbleached, whereas if you dry exclusively inside that won't happen - but this is not the fault of the product, just the user. I'm so glad that I have it. July 18, 2011

Answer: 
You can use just the stake if your using it in a temporary setting. The stake can be driven into the ground with a mallet. However the recommend installment method is the cement one to make sure it is properly anchored when weighted down with laundry. Or you can also use a weighted patio umbrella base that you can find at any local store that sells patio furniture.

Answer: 
We do not sell the ground cover for the umbrella drying rack. However you should be able to find one locally at any location that sells patio umbrellas. If you are unable to find one locally email ProductSpecialist@gaiam.com and I can send you the vendors information. They are a UK based company so it might be more cost effective to try and find it locally first as the shipping is likely to be high.
