Galvanized steel is a popular choice for planters and raised beds.
Galvanized steel is a known treatment of steel where a zinc treatment makes the metal extra durable and maintenance-free. All byJEMA galvanized products are made from hot-dipped galvanized plate that is cut on a laser, bent and bolted together.
Since the hot-dipped galvanized surface is disrupted by laser cutting, there may be some form of rust formation in the joints. It can be said that about 1/3 of the galvanization "flows" through the cut, leaving about 2/3 of exposed steel. Over time, this cut will develop some form of corrosion and take on a darker color than the rest of the plate. Similarly, the galvanized surface over time changes color from a shiny surface to a more matte surface. All byJEMA products, planters and steel benches, are designed with these cuts in mind. Thus, the cuts are uniform and attempted to be hidden by bending on the CUBY series.
Planters and raised beds from byJEMA are made of galvanized steel and designed with an elegant and timeless style. They are sturdy and can withstand harsh weather conditions commonly found in the Nordic climate. They are also easy to maintain as it is only necessary to wipe them down with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or algae. Any scratches or cuts, for that matter, have the ability to self-repair as the zinc continues to develop a protective layer.
If soil, sand, and dirt have accumulated on the surface, it may be a good idea to clean the dirty plates, as there is a greater risk of white rust in dirty areas.
Galvanized steel is also a good choice for planters and raised beds because it is a very durable material. It is not only resistant to rust and corrosion but also withstands damage from high temperatures, UV radiation, and other weather conditions.
The design is functional and fits well in many different garden environments, from modern to rustic. The plant boxes and raised beds are also available in several sizes, so you can choose the size that best fits your garden space.
Another advantage of choosing galvanized steel plant boxes and raised beds from byJEMA is that they are environmentally friendly. Galvanized steel is recyclable and can be used again and again, making it a good choice for those who want to reduce their environmental impact.
Overall, galvanized steel plant boxes and raised beds from byJEMA are an attractive choice for those who want a timeless, robust, and durable solution for their gardens. Our unique design and material choice provide a beautiful and natural addition to the garden, and their durability ensures they will serve you for many years to come.
Does the steel harm the plants?
You can grow and plant all kinds of vegetables and plants in this planter box. Galvanized steel is generally not harmful to the plants, as it is a corrosion-resistant material that does not release harmful chemicals or metals. Zinc, which is used in the galvanization, can be harmful to plants in high concentrations, but in the small amounts present in galvanized steel, it is unlikely to have a harmful effect. If you are still in doubt, we recommend lining the box with plastic film, flamingo, insulation mat, or similar. This will also insulate the soil from the sides of the box and extend its lifespan.
It is important to check the soil's PH value and add soil-improving materials if necessary, as galvanized steel may have a tendency to lower the soil's PH value.
In total, galvanized steel is a good choice for planter boxes and raised beds.
