Also consider, it is possible to etch this cor-ten steel. That opens up a lot more possibilities for the peace meditation walk.

your image - I would love to incorporate your image into a presentation (Trends in Outdoor Living) I am doing for the Shade conference in Phoenix. Is there any way you could please send me this image (approx. 1200x800 pixels is fine) to: kathryn@prideauxdesign.net? I would SO appreciate it. And I will definitely give your firm credits on the image. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Feast Your Eyes on Edible Gardens
A raised semicircular bed is ideal for creating a small, private space in a larger yard. Instead of filling it with annuals or grasses, try a mix of edibles. The blend of greens in the foliage provides visual interest against the rust color of the planters. The raised beds offer high style and easy access to the ripening crops.

Exteriorscapes’ Corten Raised Beds & Herb Spiral published in Sunset Magazine, July 2012 June 27, 2012 Customed designed about seven years ago this garden is located in North Seattle. Our client is a former culinary teacher and she is very passionate about growing her own herbs and vegetables to use in her daily cooking. True to our mission we were looking to do something unusual and beautiful but also functional which worked perfectly with our clients who are both artistic and creative. This potager garden consists of four raised beds that form an outer circle with an herb spiral at the center and gravel paths between. The raised beds are built with 1/4″ thick corten steel which is strong enough to retain good soil depth while minimizing the amount of garden space taken up by the wall. Corten steel is great for heat gain and allows a northwest gardener to grow more heat loving plants like tomatoes and peppers! And the plate steel is great for creating all sorts of shapes. Finally, corten steel is naturally weather resistant…perfect for rainy Seattle! These beds were designed to be seat height for easy access to the beds for maintenance, planting and harvesting. Steel tube posts welded to the plate steel every 24″ allow for poles for growing runner beans or a custom-made moveable seat for even easier weeding & garden access. See the full article and more photos and illustrations in Sunset’s July 2012 Issue .
