Size of planters? Use anything to speed up the "rusting" ?

Hi--the planters were custom fabricated; I don't recall the dimensions. They were made of hot-rolled steel and not treated with anything.

Do the steel planters leave rust stains around their bases? - I like the clean lines of this space and especially like the concrete pavers and the steel planters. My question is do you have a problem with rust stains around the steel planters?

It is hard to see in the photos, but there is a small gap filled with crushed stone at the base of the steel planters. The rain washes into the stone.

Thank you so much for your reply. I had never heard of corten steel before nor it's properties of ceasing to oxidize after aquiring that beautiful "rust" patina. Simply beautiful.

The steel planters were custom made. They are 1/4" steel and have bands on the inside to keep the sides straight.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The recently renovated backyard guided some of the decisions for the front yard, but Estes wanted to create a unique entry experience. The house backs up to the beach, and its proximity to the water helped inspire the design, plantings and hardscape palette. Though the front yard pulls inspiration from the coast, it’s not overtly beachy.In addition to looking good for passing cars, front yards serve as thoroughfares: street to front door, trash cans to curb, outdoor seating to house. The homeowner wanted an outdoor seating and dining area but also needed access to the garage and trash area. “All of these needs for access left us with a space that — if we weren’t careful — would just be a series of paths,” says Estes. Steel planters were already being used in the backyard, and Estes incorporated them into the front yard design. The raised planters help shape necessary paths and spaces without carving up the garden too much. “They also work as objects in the space and as dividers,” Estes says. “This dividing and screening makes the space seem larger than it actually is, because it cannot all be seen from any given point.”

A cedar fence encloses the space. The homeowners were motivated primarily by the desire to shield themselves from the wind and ocean spray. Though they wanted privacy, they didn’t want the entire front facade to be opaque, closed off to the world.
