Corten Steel

Corten Steel works really well in a garden not only because of its lovely burnt orange colour of rust but it also allows you to build very thin walls in a garden, unlike traditional sleepers which are 10cms thick or stone which would be at least 15cms.

Below are just a few of the projects where we have made great use of Corten Steel.
