Steel Patina Trough Planters

Steel Patina Trough Planters are strong, durable, low maintenance and an attractive addition to any outdoor area. They are made of mild steel which is seen as a more cost-effective alternative to corten steel. They form a stunning dark orange patina on the outside, which gives a stark contrast to green foliage or bright, beautiful plants. Trough planters are useful for space optimisation as they can outline the edge of a garden or can act as dividers to separate different areas of your garden.

What is mild steel?

Mild steel is an alternative material to corten steel. It naturally weathers and forms a rusty patina on the outside, this creates a deep orange colour. It has a low carbon content, this means it is easier to shape and weld.

How will your mild steel weather?

Steel Patina Trough Planters weather over a period of 6-12 months. Please be aware during this period, there may be run off from rainwater. Therefore, if your planter is sat on surfaces like stones or concrete it may stain.

After your planters arrive, please unpack immediately to prevent any irregular staining.
