Our modern Corten Steel Tonic Planter by Adezz will be a stylish addition to any garden. Available in three sizes, this curve-edged quadrilateral is perfect for any outdoor space. Fabricated from high-quality 2mm thick Corten Steel this hard-wearing and durable planter is suitable for both domestic and commercial applications. The contemporary shape of these planters means they are perfectly suited to any modern garden design and the smooth edges add an extra note of luxury to the pieces. The stunning orange hue and impressive size of these Corten Steel Tonic planters means they are eye-catching and can be used as a focal point in any outdoor area and will look gorgeous when planted with a huge variety of flora. The rusted colour develops from the self-protecting outer layer that prevents the degradation on the interior steel meaning the gorgeous planters are weather-resistant. Each planter comes with drainage holes as well as 17mm feet as standard to raise the planter slightly off the ground to allow water to flow freely out of the planter and away from its base. The unique style of these planters means they are perfect as stand-alone pieces or when used in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters to get a flow of corten orange throughout your garden.

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.
