Corten Steel Conic Flared Round Planters By Adezz
Our beautiful Corten Steel Conic Flared Round Planters by Adezz are the perfect combination of modern and traditional. With a classic planter shape usually seen in materials such as Terracotta, these planters have a conventional edge. However, they are made form Corten Steel which is an incredibly fashionable, contemporary material used throughout landscape design. This fusion of old-style and new material makes these planters rather spectacular. Fabricated from high-quality 2mm thick Corten Steel these stylish planters are long-lasting and durable. The weather-resistance of these pieces comes from the fact that Corten Steel forms a self-protecting rust layer over times which prevents degradation of the inner steel. Flared planters give a fantastic starting point for a gorgeous planting scheme and with the large range of sizes available, you can find the perfect planters to fit your garden design. Filling a flared round planter with a shrub such as a Lacecap Hydrangea gives a beautiful finish filled with stunning foliage and delicate flowers. If you have plenty of outdoor space, using the larger versions of these Corten Steel Conic Flared Round Planters by Adezz at various spots in your garden can add style and structure. These planters also comes with small 15mm feet and drainage holes which allow water to flow freely out and away from the base of the planter. The design of these planters means that they work well as stand-alone pieces, when used in sets or when used in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters. 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.
