What is Corten Steel?

Corten Steel is not a new material but its application to landscaping is relatively recent. Developed in America in the 1930s, Corten Steel is an alloy made mainly from iron with small amounts of carbon and other elements. The intelligent composition gives it far superior weather-resistance over normal steel which is why Corten Steel Planters are so long-lasting. The weather-resistance comes about from the formation of a rusted outer layer which protects the inner steel giving a gorgeous orange hue. Another advantage is  Corten Planters are incredibly strong yet fairly  lightweight as you only need a thin gauge of metal to give a huge amount of structural solidity.

Styles of Planter

FloraSelect offers a fantastic  variety of sizes, shapes and styles to choose from. With more traditional cube and trough planters available both with and without feet, you can develop a more angular and structured garden design. Choosing a planter with feet gives added height as well as a secondary design feature. Even those planters without feet have small raised sections to lift the planter slightly off the ground allowing water to flow freely out of the draining holes and away from the base of the planters. Alternatively, there are the curved-type planters including styles such as Column and Drum planters which give a more contemporary look. Using rounded edges can also be useful when used in commercial projects that will have a high foot-fall to prevent pedestrian injury. The range of designs include some incredibly artistic pieces which can provide a focal point to work from in any outdoor design.

Where to use Corten Planters?

Choosing the perfect location can help to create a stunning garden design. Dependent on the style you are looking for as well as the size and shape of your garden will  have an effect on where to place you planters. One of the best ways to tie together your garden design is to use multiples placed throughout the space to create a flow of Corten orange. There is also the option to use Corten Steel Garden Edging  to add a more subtle stream of steel throughout your space. Another fantastic placement idea is using tall narrow designs to flank a doorway or using the Vegetable Planters to create neat raised beds for shrub or tree planting.
