The material used for garden beds is zincalume which is basically the same metal material used in conventional water tanks. At the top there is a layer of rubber to prevent the sharp edge from causing cuts. You should be able to get the same thing manufactured in the US by a standard rainwater tank fabricator. By the way, there is no bottom to the tank to allow drainage.

Isn't this just short lengths of wide diameter culvert pipe?

zincalume is an alloy which won't readily rust unless it has constant moisture. We coat the interior of the tanks with a water sealing paint food grade. This further prevents rust and significantly extends the life of the tanks.

Lisa Frederick added this to Sift Through 8 Stylish Sandboxes
A feat of green design as well as visual appeal, this trio of industrial-size water drums includes a sandy spot for teeny-tinies to enjoy.
Alison Hodgson added this to How to Cultivate a Young Gardener
Bonus if it's near your child's play area.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to 3 Ways Native Plants Make Gardening So Much Better
Since native plants support more wildlife than nonnatives, using them creates a space of wonder and exploration for kids. Exposure to nature has been proven to increase creativity, out-of-the-box thinking and confidence, all while easing symptoms of ADHD. When I was growing up I had more intense relationships with frogs and sticks and dirt than I can remember. Did you know soil contains microscopic organisms that, through contact with our skin, increase levels of serotonin? No wonder I’m happy when I’m digging in the dirt!

love the industrial steel planters @ various levels.
Kate N added this to 318 Whitney St
Love the repetition of the sandbox with planters. Could easily be converted to planter when kids and Kates get over the sand. Downside is that it’s much smaller than I’d like.
