With a corten steel border edge, you not only add a decorative element to your outdoor space, but also benefit from the durability and low maintenance in the long term.

How to install steel border edging

Adding corten steel border edging to your garden is a fantastic way to create structure. Installing this border edge doesn't have to be a complex task. Follow our simple step-by-step guide and transform your garden into a charming, well-structured paradise in no time.

Step 1: Preparation. Ensure that the surface on which the border edge will be placed is flat and supportive. An uneven or unstable surface can lead to crooked connections and even damage to the edge.

Step 2: Placement. Place the retaining walls on the prepared surface. Use the supplied materials to bolt the elements in place. Start by loosely tightening all the bolts, then they can be tightened securely one by one.

Step 3: Stabilization. Provide extra stability by covering both sides of the retaining wall with a layer of soil 10 cm above the base plate.

Step 4: Finishing. Finally, fill up the interior of the retaining wall further and complete any paving.

what is corten steel?

Corten steel, also known as weathering steel, is a metal alloy characterized by a corrosion-resistant layer. This specific layer is formed after a period of exposure to the weather, giving the steel a unique rustic appearance. This type of steel is popular in construction and landscape architecture due to its high strength, durability, and attractive appearance. The oxidation process also gives the steel a natural barrier against further corrosion.

At ADEZZ, products made from corten steel are delivered unrested. This means that upon delivery the corten steel still has a silvery-grey color. The characteristic rusting process, which gives corten steel its special appearance, starts as soon as the product is placed outdoors.

The rusting process of corten steel

After being placed outdoors, the corten steel begins to oxidize under the influence of the weather. This rusting process takes approximately six months on average. At first, the steel turns an orange brown. Over time, this color darkens into a warm, red-brown. Each product will oxidize in a unique way due to individual weather conditions and environmental influences, giving each piece of corten steel a characteristic and unique appearance.

For those who wish to see the rusted appearance faster, ADEZZ also offers a rust accelerator. This is a special product that is applied to Corten steel to promote the rusting process. Perfect for those who desire the warm, rustic appearance sooner without having to wait for natural weather influences.

So whether you opt for the natural course of rust formation or wish to speed up the process with a rust accelerator, with corten steel products from ADEZZ, you will achieve a durable and unique element in your garden or landscape.

What is the difference between a corten steel retaining wall and corten steel edging as a border edge?

The main difference between a corten steel retaining wall and a corten steel edging lies in their function and application as border edges:

1. Corten steel retaining wall: A retaining wall is used as a strong border edge, to absorb or create large height differences. This robust border edge is designed to hold soil and serves as an edge for raised flower beds, terraces or slopes. A corten steel retaining wall, an excellent choice as a border edge, is always larger, higher and sturdier than edging, since the retaining wall is able to withstand large amounts of soil.

2. Corten steel edging: Edging, also a beautiful option for a border edge, is used to delineate and define the edges of an area. This corten steel border edge is perfect for separating lawn, flower beds, paths or driveways and ensuring that soil, gravel or mulch does not become dispersed. A corten steel edging, lower and smaller in size than a retaining wall, mainly serves as a separation in the form of a border edge.

While both corten steel retaining walls and corten steel edgings can be made and have a similar rusty appearance, they therefore differ in their function and dimensions as border edges. A retaining wall provides stability and holds soil at height differences, while an edging is mainly used to separate the edges of different areas and prevent materials from becoming dispersed.
