Andes Corten Steel Trough Planters with Wheels by Adezz
Having discreet wheels on the base of your planter can be a fantastic way to combine form and function. Not only can you enjoy our stunning Andes Corten Steel Trough Planters with Wheels by Adezz but additionally you can add a practical element to your garden design. This makes these planters perfect for restaurants or cafes as you can wheel them back in at the end of service.
In addition to this, these planters are ideal for placing over an access point such as a man-holes. Or alternatively, these are handy when placed underneath a window so you can move them easily when the windows need cleaning.
These are cleverly designed with a slightly raised base so that the strong wheels are hidden slightly behind the planter’s skirting. This makes for an non-intrusive inclusion of the wheels so that you still get the maximum impact of the gorgeous Corten Steel. The planters come pre-drilled with drainage holes and as the wheels raise them slightly off the ground, excess water can easily flow out of the base and away from the planter.
Furthermore, there is a large range of sizes to choose from making it easy for you to create your ideal space. Of course, a range of sizes means you have flexibility with your planting scheme from bamboos to small trailing plants such as stunning lobelias. Please see below for links to selected technical drawings.

Corten Steel (or weathering steel) is an alloy that naturally forms a rust coating the over the first 9 months or so of it being exposed to the weather. Interestingly, due to the composition of this special alloy, this rust coating forms a protective layer that prevents further rusting. The steel underneath remains unimpaired as the outer layer continues to protect and regenerate as it exposed to water and oxygen.
One of the most striking landmarks in Britain, The Angel of the North, by the artist Anthony Gormly is made of COR-TEN weathering steel. It is one of many remarkable structures in the world made of weathering steel including but not limited to the Barclays Centre, The Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Australian centre for contemporary art. COR-TEN (CORrosion resistance TENsile strength) weathering steel was first invented by United States Steel for use in the manufacture of ore transports. Since the creation in the 1930’s, a slew of artists and designers have seen the potential of Corten weathering steel to create installations of great style and beauty. This Adezz range is a notable addition to that list.
You will see in the gallery an image representing the ageing process that Corten steel goes through, and although this is outlined in the section above, you can see in the image the range of shades these planters take on as they form their protective coating.
