Hand aged galvanised | Heritage garden planters and products

Most mass produced garden products use 0.4m thick galvanised steel, some smaller manufacturers use 1.2mm. We use 2mm; we want our pieces to last decades not years. All items are galvanised 'complete' so that the protection given to the steel by the zinc finish is as thorough as it can be.

Hot dip galvanising produces quite a bright silver though so we use a unique combination of acidic materials (developed in house through countless experiments!) to give our products an 'aged' look.

Essentially we speed up time for our pieces, each is unique and each will look weathered without losing any of its protection. The process is done entirely by hand which means no two planters are alike.
