Corten Steel Tower Planters by Senzzo
Our fantastic Corten Steel Tower Planters by Senzzo are a brilliant and cost-effective way of adding colour and height to your garden. Available in three size options with varying heights, using these planters is an easy way to access new levels in your garden giving a fresh look with little effort. Fabricated from high-quality, 1.5mm thick Corten Steel they are long-lasting items with built in weather-resistance. This is down to the fact that Corten Steel forms a self-protecting rust coating over time which prevents degradation of the inner steel meaning these planters are perfectly suited to life outside. Tall planters suit a range of flora but often look most effective when filled with either trailing plants or tall slender ones both options accentuating the elegant style of the planter. A brilliant example being Lemon Cypress Trees which will give a stunning bright green that contrasts beautifully against the amber of the Corten Steel. Tower planters can be used in a variety of ways for example, flanking a doorway or garden path or to border an area of decking. Placing them alone or in sets can create a big impact with little input or alternatively using them in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters can give a beautiful flow of Corten orange throughout an outdoor space. These planters qualify for Free Delivery throughout the UK mainland.

What is Corten Steel? [read]
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. [/read]
How will your Corten Steel weather? [read]
- 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. [/read]
What if you want to speed up the weathering? [read]
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. [/read]
