CORTEN STEEL EDGING
Corten steel, also commonly referred to as ‘weathering steel’, is a unique building material valued for its distinctive rustic appearance and durability.
When exposed to the elements, corten undergoes a weathering process and develops a protective layer of rust that resists corrosion and eliminates the need for painting or additional maintenance. This layer also gives corten steel its warm and rich texture, that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Unlike other steels, Corten steel has an exceptional level of atmospheric corrosion resistance thanks to its chemical composition.
Some key benefits include:
- High strength
This makes Corten steel a trusty choice for a range of outdoor applications, especially garden edging, where durability and aesthetic appeal are some of the most important factors.
Corten steel edging provides solutions when designing and maintaining your garden borders. When you choose corten edging from our catalogue, you can expect features that deliver:
Garden edging is constantly exposed to harsh weather, from extreme heat to heavy rainfall and frost. These conditions can deteriorate cheaper edgings over time, but corten steel is specifically designed to withstand exposure to the elements.
This is thanks to its rust patina, a protective coating that resists this type of corrosion, ensuring your edging retains its strength and structure for decades without rotting, cracking or becoming brittle.
Traditional edgings often require laborious upkeep like cleaning, sealing, painting and replacing damaged sections. The weathered finish of corten steel, however, eliminates this hassle.
Once installed, corten edging is virtually maintenance-free thanks to its rust layer preventing further degradation. You can enjoy neat, clean edges year after year without constant repairs or repainting when you choose Round Wood of Mayfield.
The unique rusted patina of weathered Corten steel adds a beautiful texture that enhances the visual appeal of your garden. Its distinctive industrial aesthetic stands out from typical edgings to become a focal feature, complementing both modern and traditional garden styles.
As a recyclable material, corten steel reduces waste compared to other edgings. Our range specifically is made from up to 60% recycled steel, making it a brilliant choice for eco-conscious homeowners looking to revamp their gardens sustainably.
The long service life of our corten steel edgings also decreases the frequency of replacement. Coupled with its recyclability, our corten edging is the perfect example of a circular lifecycle.
With its bendable and rigid profiles, corten steel edging adapts to any garden layout. You can curve smooth lines, create sharp corners or finish a raised bed with a U-profile. This versatility means you can redesign beds and borders in future without needing new edging.
The higher initial investment in corten steel edging returns savings over time thanks to its exceptional longevity and lack of maintenance costs. It is a premium quality material that retains its integrity and enhances your garden’s visual impact for decades.

At Round Wood of Mayfield, we offer a comprehensive range of corten steel edging options to suit any garden layout and design. Our Corten edging comes in a choice of three profiles:
A simple flat profile that can easily bend and curve, making it ideal for winding garden beds and curved borders.
A rigid, right-angled profile that is perfect for straight lines and crisp edges along paths, lawns, and driveways.
Provides a small lip and overhang that helps contain gravel or mulch.
Both our Straight and Folded Edging profiles are available in 150 mm and 290 mm heights. This allows you to choose shorter edging for flower beds or taller edging for drives and lawns. The U-Profile comes in a 150 mm height only, but it is just as versatile in its range of uses.
The edging sections are supplied in convenient 2500 mm lengths and can be secured using corten steel pegs which slot into small holes along the edging.
For thickness, you can select from 2 mm or 3 mm corten steel depending on your design needs:
2mm: Provides a lightweight and cost-effective option.

Corten Steel is a weathering steel that forms a protective rust layer over time. Its unique rust-like appearance and weather-resistant properties make it a popular choice for garden sculptures, planters, and edging, adding a rustic charm to outdoor spaces.
Corten Steel requires minimal maintenance. Simply keep the surface clean from debris and ensure proper drainage to prevent water accumulation. Its natural weathering process enhances the aesthetics of garden features without the need for painting or special treatments.
We are unable to cut edging in-house. You could cut the edging onsite yourself or with the help of a professional. Please bear in mind the joining tabs are positioned at each end and may need to be reattached, depending on how you are fixing the ends.
No, it might not. We receive regular deliveries of corten steel edging and dispatch our products at the stage of weathering it has reached while in stock. Your edging pieces may therefore be delivered with different levels of weathering.
Yes, the straight edged and folded edging can be used to create curves, U-Profile edging cannot. Corten Steel is a very springy steel, and you can use the straight-edged edging to create smaller radius curves, for example, around a tree by using several edging pieces. The folded edging can be curved to follow a smooth large curve, like a driveway.
