Corten Steel Planters

Corten steel has a natural look due to its rusty color, making it a favorite among gardeners. That is why the corten steel planters from Wovar are an ideal addition to your garden. Due to the rusty brown color, they do not disturb the natural environment and they blend with nature.

Additionally, these corten steel planters without a bottom can be perfectly combined with our corten steel garden edging. This way you can arrange your garden as you wish and create a beautiful rural atmosphere.

Wovar supplies your corten steel planter in three sizes: 60 x 60 x 56 cm, 80 x 80 x 56 cm and 100 x 100 x 56 cm.

Tip for the garden:  When you are going to plant in the corten steel planter, we advise you to cover the bottom of the planter with pebbles, then put water-permeable landscape fabric on top, and finally the potting soil or soil that is suitable for your plants. This way the water can drain well and you will not get weeds.

A planter made of corten steel is easy to assemble. The corten steel planters from Wovar have a handy manual for assembling the planter, which explains step by step how to proceed. In addition, the necessary mounting materials such as corner brackets and screws are included. 

The Pros and Cons of a Corten Steel Flower Box

A flower box made of Corten steel is virtually maintenance-free. You only need to wipe or spray any visible dirt from the planter. However, do not use a  high-pressure cleaner for this. In addition, despite its appearance, Corten steel is resistant to corrosion. The rusty layer that corten steel gets is a protective layer against further corrosion. This gives your corten steel planter a long life. 

The disadvantage of a corten steel planter is that the rusting process of the corten steel takes about 6 to 12 months before the beautiful rust color comes into its own. However, this oxidation process can be accelerated. Read and see how to do this below. Another disadvantage is that the corten steel can still release rust water during the rusting process. It is therefore wise to place a protective surface under the flower box during this period to prevent stains on your paving. 

Making a Corten Steel Planter Rust Faster

Your corten steel planter is not yet completely rusted on arrival. The oxidation process, through which the corten steel comes into its own, takes about 6 to 12 months.

Fortunately, you don't have to wait for 6 to 12 months, because the rusting process can also be accelerated. Watch the step-by-step plan and the video below. For an extensive explanation, please refer to our blog on how to make corten steel rust faster. 

  1. Corten steel is finished with a wax layer. The first step is to delete this layer. You can use the degreaser and the cloth for this. 
  2. Once you've removed the wax, it's time to make our homemade rust accelerator.
  3. Fill the bucket with 10 liters of warm water and add 3 tablespoons of salt or vinegar.
  4. Stir the mixture well and fill your plant sprayer with it.
  5. Apply the mixture gradually and liberally to your Corten steel product.
  6. Repeat the application of this mixture daily and after 6 days you will notice a significant difference. 
  7. To achieve a completely rusted-through product, you will have to perform this treatment daily for about 6 weeks.

Fill Corten Steel Planter without Bottom

To fill the corten steel planter you need the following: pebbles, a water-permeable landscape fabric, and soil, or potting soil, that is suitable for your plants.

  1. Cover the planter with a layer of pebbles, about 10 cm high. 
  2. Place the water-permeable anti-root cloth over the pebbles. Allow the edges of the cloth to stand up about 10 cm.
  3. Fill the flower box to about 5 cm below the rim with soil or potting compost.
  4. You can now plant your plants without any worries.
