Corten steel decorative screens: a landscaping miracle

Transforming outdoor spaces

Landscaping is an art that goes beyond the mere arrangement of plants and flowers. It’s about the thoughtful integration of elements that enhance natural beauty and also reflect the personality and style of a space. Corten steel decorative screens are making waves in the world of landscaping because their naturally weathered look perfectly bridges the gap between the environment and the added human artistic touch.

Understanding corten steel

Corten steel, also known as weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys that develop a stable, rust-like appearance over time. Unlike when other metals develop rust, the rusty layer on corten steel acts as a protective barrier, preventing further corrosion and giving the material its distinctive character. This natural weathering process adds a touch of natural charm and makes corten steel highly durable and resistant to the elements.  

Appealing for many homeowners is that because the weathering process is natural and ongoing, choosing corten steel eliminates the need for ongoing maintenance like painting or protective coatings.

Functional, flexible, versatile

Decorative screens have many options for use as a landscaping tool and are truly the marriage of functionality and aesthetics: 
  • Create privacy in outdoor spaces or fence off specific areas while maintaining an open and airy feel.
  • A corten decorative screen can be the standalone artwork in your landscaped garden or can serve as a backdrop for garden beds and water features.
  • Used strategically the perforations and cutouts on a corten screen can create a captivating light and shadow play as the sun moves throughout the day.
