OK. A couple of questions then...

Is the Cor-ten embedded into the concrete below? Is that a continuous pour?

If so, how much?

Is the Cor-ten welded to rebar in the concrete? Poured in?

Is is the concrete saw-cut or voided during the pour and the steel slid into the cuts or voids?

I'd really like to try this, so any info you'd be willing to share would be helpful.

I believe they are Festuca 'Elijah Blue' but may be another form of Festuca o. glauca.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The way the edge of a bed could continue architectural lines and be made from different materials.

Sometimes just a little bit of texture is all it takes. Rust-ridden sheet metal not only contains your planting beds, but its appearance will actually change over time. The patina will continue to change the longer it's exposed to the elements.
