Metal garden objects
Metal objects with support function
Modeling and structuring the terrain is often required or desired when creating a new garden or park. Metal objects such as earth retaining walls, stair systems, raised beds and path bordering strips can be used to achieve fast results that are both visually and technically sophisticated. On the following pages you will find an overview of our metal objects from the category EARTH, with which every garden gets a new face.

Available surfaces for EARTH
All metal objects from the EARTH category are available in a stainless steel look made of the characteristic rust-red Corten steel – also known as weather-resistant structural steel – which, with its lively patina, blends particularly well into a natural environment. Our stainless steel objects are made of V4A stainless steel and all edges are rounded and ground. For color-coated objects, we use V2A grade stainless steel as the basic material and leave you spoilt for choice of color from a wide range of RAL and DB color shades. For objects that have to fulfill a purely technical function, we offer hot-dip galvanizing of garden objects as a cost-effective method. This technical process is used solely for corrosion protection and is suitable, for example, for path delineation strips.
A solid frame for your planting
With the modular system TERRESTA from Gartenmetall® you can produce planters and raised beds in almost any dimension. Thanks to the stable and solid design, these systems are very high quality and durable. Planters are suitable for terraces, balconies, as well as in the garden. In addition, it can also be used to support different heights in a fall-proof manner.
OurRONDA metal planting rings are specially designed for free-standing tree borders. Due to the round shape and the surrounding edge, the ring gets a very high stability and can thus be built up to a height of almost one meter.
Intercept heights with earth retaining walls
If different heights must be intercepted in the garden or terraced terrain, concrete walls, L-stone walls or – much more elaborate – dry stone walls are classically used. In comparison, earth retaining walls made of metal give the garden a modern character. They require considerably less installation space and can be easily screwed and anchored in the ground on site. Due to the lower weight, heavy equipment can be dispensed with in many cases during installation. This saves money and prevents unnecessary soil compaction in the rest of the garden. With TERRA PALA metal earth retaining walls, you can support heights of up to one meter, depending on the soil conditions, load and installation situation. The solid earth retaining wall absorbs the slope and embankment forces and thus ensures permanent stability in the open space.
Wall Facings & Stair Systems
In the case of higher terrain jumps, we recommend that the different terrain levels first be intercepted with classic L-stones or masonry units. These retaining walls can then be clad with our innovative and proven MAURESTA wall facing system made of high-quality metal. Existing walls that have become unsightly over the years can also be elegantly concealed and given the appearance of a solid wall made of corten steel or stainless steel. This system can be easily and quickly installed by any gardener and landscaper, and is much cheaper in relation to earth retaining walls made of solid metal. Wall facing MAURESTA is designed in such a way that after installation no screws are visible from the front. It creates the impression of a solid earth retaining wall
made of metal.
Gartenmetall® also offers a wide range of single steps or complete staircases for garden and outdoor stairs – according to the motto “nothing is impossible”! Under the name SCALA we offer step elements made of rust and weather-resistant Corten steel as well as high-quality stainless steel V4A.
Complete staircase CALVI allows quick and easy installation. Due to its inherent stability, only the leading and trailing edges need to be fixed and the interstices filled with suitable filler material. Thus, subsidence of the soil can not harm the finished staircase thanks to the foundations.
The thin metal steps give the cantilever solid staircase CORTE a particularly elegant look. With this stair connection, height differences of up to more than one meter can be overcome unsupported. Only the inlet and outlet must be screwed or set in concrete.
Borders for paths and borders - path bordering strips, lawn edges and grave borders
The EASY-LINER, ECO-LINER and ECO-FOLD-LINER path edging strips are used both in public spaces and in private gardening and are designed in terms of thickness, material and shape to meet the requirements of professional gardening and landscaping. Path border strips can be used to restructure the garden, border lawns and paths, and border planting beds. Farm gardens are also very easy to create with individually shaped metal bands. In terms of material, the choice is corten steel, stainless steel, color-coated and hot-dip galvanized steel. Corten steel contains a small amount of copper and has a rough surface. Both in combination make the weatherproof structural steel a real snail deterrent – and the material the first choice for flower and perennial beds.
Graves can also be edged with elements made of corten steel, stainless steel or color-coated metal. For many years we have been offering the cemetery classic under the product name PALA : grave borders with or without edging. We offer matching grave and memorial crosses as well as specially made and lasered inscription plates made of the same material: Corten steel in a stainless steel look.
