These planters are one of the more popular designs in our corten range. They can be used to form barriers to create privacy, especially useful in outside eating areas or create artificial walls when planted with tall plants like bamboos. Doing so can be far less offensive and more aesthetically pleasing than putting up a fence, this works particularly well when using corten steel as the green foliage blends well with the orange rusty hues or the metal. Using this kind of planting will mix the natural and the industrial to create a hybrid appearance that looks stunning in the right environment. Should you choose to purchase one of the corten Steel trough planters by adezz you will find that they’re long-lasting due to their welded construction and gauge of metal.

How Your Planter Will Weather
- When your planter arrives it will, depending on when it was manufactured will be the colour of freshly manufactured steel, with a dark oily coating or in a stage of patina.
- As your planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.
- Your planter will begin to change colour, during this stage – the ‘run-off’ may stain stone or concrete surfaces that it comes into contact with.
- After 9 months, some ‘run-off’ may still occur.
Corten Steel (or weathering steel) is an alloy that naturally forms a rust coating the over the first 9 months or so of it being exposed to the weather. Interestingly, due to the composition of this special alloy, this rust coating forms a protective layer that prevents further rusting. The steel underneath remains unimpaired as the outer layer continues to protect and regenerate as it exposed to water and oxygen.
One of the most striking landmarks in Britain, The Angel of the North, by the artist Anthony Gormly is made of COR-TEN weathering steel. It is one of many remarkable structures in the world made of weathering steel including but not limited to the Barclays Centre, The Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Australian centre for contemporary art. COR-TEN (CORrosion resistance TENsile strength) weathering steel was first invented by United States Steel for use in the manufacture of ore transports. Since the creation in the 1930’s, a slew of artists and designers have seen the potential of Corten weathering steel to create installations of great style and beauty. This is adezz range is a notable addition to that list.
You will see in the gallery and image representing the ageing process that Corten steel goes through, and although this is outlined in the section above – you can see in the image the range of shades these planters take on as they form their protective coating.
