Corten Steel Carrez 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 Corten Steel Carrez 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.

What is Corten Steel?
Created in the United States in 1939, Corten or Weathering Steel is an alloy that forms a natural rust coating over time as it is exposed to the weather. The outer layer rusts forming a protective coating which prevents degradation of the steel inside. Corten Steel is used all over the world. Notably in the UK one of our greatest landmarks, The Angel of the North by Anthony Gormley is made from Corten. Other striking examples include the Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Museum of Old and New Art in Australia.
How will your Corten Steel weather?
- In most cases your Corten Steel product will arrive un-rusted. It may have a slight patina or dark oily residue, this is completely normal.
- As weathering begins, the residue breaks down and the rusty colour will start to appear. During this time, any run-off may stain stone or concrete surfaces.
- After weathering (around 6-9 months), run-off may still occur but it will be minimal.
After your corten steel has arrived please unpack immediately, so that any moisture between the packaging does not remain sealed. If you do not do this, there may be irregular rust and stains.
What if you want to speed up the weathering?
Fortunately science is on your side with a quick and easy fix. All you need is salty water. Dissolve around 1 teaspoon of salt in about 1 litre of water to get a weak salt solution. Spray or paint the solution evenly over your Corten Steel and that’s it! Repeat this process around 5 times over the period of a couple of weeks and you’ll see the rust developing in no time.
