Where does one find the steel for this type of terracing?
So the wall is concrete, clad with Corten or is it just a concrete footing? How thick is the Corten?

used as a terraced ground cover, but here they are used to soften the uncompromising Cor-Ten steel retaining walls. The height and color of the grasses are perfectly in harmony with the rust finish of the steel.Ornamental grasses can be a good plant choice, as terraces can drain freely, but the selection
the slope. The native grasses are a nice contrast with the Corten steel edging, the pool that gets taller as it moves to the west, and the zinc-and-stucco-clad structures. Note how the angle of the column at left is echoed in the north wall of that building and the part of the living pavilion across the

parking bay to the front door, and there's a patio with a water feature. To deal with the erosion problems, Glassman installed acid-stained-steel retainer walls that terrace the landscape. He then took the Goldbergs on a trip to the nursery to hand pick plants, trees and grasses for the property.

Ornamental grasses fill out the rest. The plants repeat in odd numbers throughout the raised beds. More: Find plants for your

What kind of steel did you use? Thanks.
Hi love the design you guys did! Are these faux boulders? How did you get them to hold up the steel are they just set up against the steel wall? Thanks
to a steel yard and getting what you need. They likely won't have corten in stock, but if regular mild steel is okay then you can probably get lengths of steel at 1/4" thick as wide as 12".
great info. I am trying to do a similar thing with our yard but plan on using a smaller retaining wall. I posted
The boulders are real! I think of the stones as pinning the steel in place since the walls are all slightly concave and as the steel flexes in the middle it will push the stones sideways. These stones are
trigonometry, we went to work on the stones and cut the back and bottom sides of them away. Then we sent off the specs to the steel shop and crossed our fingers. The steel came and a crane truck helped us put them in place. What do you know, they fit! We can do it much quicker now with way less stone

What is this retaining wall composed of?
How is the corten steel supported?
I am wondering what supports the steel? Do you use steel posts and weld
weld the sheets to the posts? What gauge steel did you use?
what is the angle off of vertical of that steel wall? its a wonderful design, wished you were in my state, i would hand my lot over to you!
How is the wall supported and what about rust and deterioration in the future? Looks fantastic!!

I love the metal wall to support the grass area. how did you go about doing that?
really like the concept, but how economical is the steel plate vs say stone?
Would this metal wall survive snow & ice?
And how is it anchored? It looks like there is a concrete stem wall at the base of it....

In the modern garden, stone and brickwork aren't always the most suitable construction materials for creating retaining walls. Here Cor-Ten steel has been used to form a cost-effective barrier.

Hi, is a retaining wall like this more expensive than a stone ret wall? Also, is this totally functional? i.e. for stormwater management? my knowledge of this stuff is limited so bear with
This is quite beautiful and inspiring. We are considering doing something similar in our landscape. Do you know if these steel sections get super hot? I am obsessed with this look, but have concerns for plants, children and dogs playing outside in the summer. Also, did you treat

TOO FORMAL, but I like the steel and steps

l battering of the vertical planes. Battering the retaining walls this way makes for a stronger wall, as the overturning force is greatest at the base, and the wall is positioned in a way to restrain that force. True in material and form, the steel becomes another texture and color in the landscape

What method did you use to support the walls?

It almost takes a second look to realize that the retaining walls and steps in this contemporary front garden are made of steel. The material is the perfect complement to the modern architecture of the house, because it has a clean, simple finish.The touches of rust create a more natural feel, but would
