Our Oakmont Block Steel planters are a great way to create privacy on a deck or patio, and also work nicely against a wall without taking up too much space. Our steel planters are made of 14 gauge hot-rolled steel and are left natural to weather in the elements. All the towers have holes pre-drilled in the bases to allow for ample drainage, as well as feature a seamless 1.5" trim lip surrounding the top perimeter for added detail. We also offer the option of adjustable leveling feet (an additional $45.00 charge) to create stability on uneven surfaces. Choose from 2 sizes.
As with all of our products, the raw steel will eventually develop a brown patina over time with natural weathering. The rate at which this rusting happens varies with exposure to the elements and climate. You can forestall this process (but not eliminate it altogether) by treating your item with a clear coat product such as a Rustoleum spray product from your local hardware store. Each product will require multiple treatments over time to avoid and delay the natural rust process, though neither will guarantee a 100% rust free surface.
