Corten Steel

As an alternative garden construction material, Corten Steel, also known as Weathering Steel, works really well. This is not only because of the lovely burnt orange colour it turns after weathering, but it also allows you to build very thin-walled garden structures, unlike using thicker materials such as stone or traditional wooden sleepers.

Below are just a few of the projects where we have made great use of this unique material.
