What kind of
metal is used to make these products?
STEEL: Known for their unique rust patina, our 14 gage Mild Steel Plate(1/16” thick) containers create a sustainable and functional sculptural landscape element. Our steel containers have the
strength to handle all weather conditions, including the freeze-thaw of the seasons, making steel ideal for planters, fire pits, water features, and the benches.
ALUMINUM: Guaranteed to never rust our .090 Marine Grade Aluminum (3/32” thick) is ideal for a maintenance-free solution. Aluminum is half the weight of steel and twice the strength perfect
for situations where weight is a concern or for exterior planting in unique environments. I.E. roof tops, decks, on sensitive porous surfaces, or coastal environments. Available in an array of
powder coat colors.
How do your containers drain?
All of our containers come with drain holes and intend on being directly planted in. It is not necessary to use grow pots, however some of the designs have been fit with interior shelves to hold grow pots
and saucers or to reduce the amount of soil needed to fill the containers if one chooses to do so. Containers can be provided without drain holes. Requests need to be made at time of order.
Drainage Fittings: All containers that drain onto the surface can create “Tea-staining”. This is a process in which the soil minerals stain the drainage water and the surface below. At an additional charge, Yard Art can customize special fittings hidden in the pots interior to plumb drainage off and away of these sensitive surfaces and eliminate standing water.
What is the
Natural Rust finish?
The natural rust finish begins at the time the product
is created and will continue to oxidize/rust to its own
unique finish depending on its environment. At first the rust
appears powdery on the surface, but over time the rust will
penetrate into the steel and evolve into a hard scale texture
that is actually etched into the surface of the metal. During
this transition some color transfer of the rust can take
place. Therefore we do not recommend placing our non powder
coated metal garden products on porous light colored surfaces,
but it depends on the individuals sensitivity to this
process. We would however, recommend the powder coat rust
finish. It is made up of a 4 color matte finish, depicting a
believable faux rust appearance.
What is powder
coating and why do you use it?
Powder coating is the best method available for coating metal. It is a static electric process in which color, in a powder form is charged and transferred onto the prepared metal which is then heated and
cured in a sealed precision oven that emits no VOCs into the atmosphere creating a sustainable durable finish.
What is the zinc oxidized finish?
The zinc oxidized finish is a natural patina that alters the aluminum to create a zinc finish. This patina will continue to oxidize creating the familiar aged zinc characteristics.
Are your fire pits equipped for
Yes indeed. All firepits are ready for natural gas installation. Our designer had this
in mind when creating these products. For those interested in
the natural gas, we actually offer Fire pit gas kits that
include: control valve, gas diffuser, and flexible gas line.
Everything needed for a licensed plumber to hook up to an
existing gas line or propane. The gas kit is an extra charge
and can be purchased for additional costs.
