How is the corten steel supported? - I am wondering what supports the steel? Do you use steel posts and weld the sheets to the posts? What gauge steel did you use?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"We love using steel in the landscape because of its slight profile and the fact that its natural patina reads like soil or another earthy landscape material," says Dylan Robertson, owner and lead designer at D-Crain Design and Construction. "With great attention to detail and refined craftsmanship, steel can be highly diverse in the landscape."
