LANDSCAPES SOLUTIONS WITH OUR SUSTAINABLE CORTEN STEEL
Clients today are on the lookout for landscaping solutions that not only beautify their spaces, but also reflect their commitment to the environment. For garden designers and landscapers, this escalating demand poses a complex challenge.
But this is where corten steel’s unique patina and eco-friendly construction can help, providing your clients with what they need whilst ensuring a sustainable procurement process.
Our corten steel garden features are constructed from 60% recycled steel, supporting a circular economy right from the get-go, but where our range truly shines is in its longevity and resilience.
Known for its distinctive weathered appearance, this steel has an inherent ability to resist the full range of British weather. The rusty patina it forms after long exposure acts as a shield against further corrosion, resulting in a garden feature that requires little to no maintenance.
This extended lifecycle carries profound ecological implications. Materials that last longer mean fewer replacements, and fewer replacements significantly reduce a household’s wastage.
The aesthetic charm of corten steel is undeniable. With its unique weathered appearance, corten has the uncanny ability to be both raw and refined, and its evolving finish means that every garden feature becomes a dynamic element within any garden, adding layers of depth, texture, and colour that are unparalleled.
Corten steel stands as a genuine representation of eco-friendliness, with approximately 60% of its composition sourced from recycled steel. These pieces have also been designed to last, with patinas that protect each feature from corrosion and the need for regular replacement.
Durability & Lifespan
One of the strongest attributes of corten steel is its remarkable durability. As time goes by, instead of wearing down, corten fortifies itself against degradation, and this extended lifespan serves as an economically and ecologically wise choice for designers and clients alike.
Unlike other garden materials that demand constant attention, corten steel thrives with minimal intervention, with this low maintenance routine translating directly to heightened sustainability, removing the need for regular treatments using harmful chemicals.

Yes, they do.
Typically, around 6 to 9 months.
Yes, we have a wide range of sizes. Please see the product pages on our website to see a drop-down list of available sizes.
Yes, Corten steel resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, and fog by forming a protective coating over the metal. Corten steel is completely non-porous, meaning that water cannot get into the material to then freeze and effect it.
Yes, it could. Whilst your corten steel item is weathering it will produce a lot of carbon run-off (very fine particles of oxidized metal – rust), which will stain any porous surface it is placed on to, such as stone patios and wooden decking. Once your corten item has completely weathered, the amount of run-off will be significantly reduced to almost nothing. However, there may still be some that could leave marks. The staining should be reduced with the use of a pressure washer. Once your corten item has weathered to a point you are happy with aesthetically, you can seal it using Owatrol Rust Oil. Please note – using a varnish on the corten steel will affect the colour by making it appear darker and ‘wet’.
