Corten Steel Ponds by Adezz
Our gorgeous Corten Steel Ponds by Adezz make a fantastic focal point in any garden. With large swathes of the stunning Corten orange, these ponds really set off their surroundings and can transform any outdoor space. Fabricated from high-quality 3mm thick Corten Steel these ponds are incredibly strong and durable, making Corten Steel an ideal material for this application. The Corten Steel is also naturally weather-resistant as it forms a self-protecting rust layer which prevents degradation of the inner steel. Our Corten Steel Ponds by Adezz are lined with a non-toxic polyurea coating to prevent the pond water becoming contaminated with Corten rust. This lining is perfectly safe to aquatic life so any fish or other wildlife will be able to thrive in the pond. These stylish ponds also come with several intelligent features including a discreet overflow pipe which keeps your water level under the required amount as well as two inlets which can be used for a pump and light or other electrical features in your pond. All of these options can be adjusted to your requirements. Every one of our ponds is custom made to your specification so if you cannot see the exact size you would like, contact us on 01245 422 353 or on [email protected] and we can arrange a bespoke design for you. If you would like to enhance your pond to create a water feature, have a look at our corten steel wall placed on ponds or corten steel freestanding water walls. To keep the flow of Corten orange running throughout your garden, you can add other Corten Steel Garden Water Features for example water bowls or pond walls to complete the look.

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?
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
