    For liability reasons, I cannot get into footing depths, etc.. But I can tell you that holes are drilled in the steel sheets and rebar are inserted which help it connect to the reinforced concrete footing that is poured around it.

    The steel plates are 4' tall, secured a few inches into concrete. The benches are Ipe' wood and about 18" wide.

    I am looking to use Corten steel as part of my fence but not sure of the recommended thickness. Could I use 16ga or 1.29mm for a fence or pavers edging?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The Cor-Ten seems to rust more evenly than regular mild steel and therefore is often worth the extra cost for those instances where you want a calm, consistent rusty color as a backdrop or foil for plantings," says landscape architect Joseph Huettl.Feathery grasses create a dynamic backdrop beyond these rectilinear panels.

Interesting way to suggest a wall but be able to have glimpses through. Works well with concrete and stones or gravel. Contrasts well with blue flowers and glaucous foliage

We like the look of Corten Steel outside with grasses.
