They are modular and can be composed in optional lengths where you can Build on them with our side plates.If our standard models do not fit in for your project, you can contact us for a good offer on high beds for your particular garden project. Or try our special target calculator at the top of the page.
Why choose a high bed?
You get raised the level from the grass and you get a better working height in your high bed. You can plant everything in your high bed in corten steel, vegetables, herbs and beautiful summer flowers. You minimize the weeds in your high bed.
Always consider where to place your high bed, the plants should have full sun all day or are they fine with getting some shade.
The soil in the high bed does not dry out as easily as the earth in the rest of the garden. The corten steel holds moisture and reduces evaporation.
In hot and dry weather, always be aware of getting the water plenty when the sun is not baking down on your plants.
It gives a nice look with high beds in a row where you have a better overview of your prayers.
Our high beds are made without bottom. The plants and rainwater can therefore better penetrate to the ground and avoid the soil rotting at the bottom.
What is Corten steel?
Corten steel or the Cor-TEN If we need to use the right term is a type of steel that rusts quickly in the surface, but has a slower penetration than, for example, soft steel. One can thus say that the rust layer prevents the material from rusting. CThus, orthe steel can last outdoors for decades - completely maintenance -free.
When we process the material at our factory, the material is similar to ordinary black steel. On delivery, the steel is still black, but after a few weeks of outdoor location - depending on the season - the rust layer will slowly emerge. If you are impatient, the process can be accelerated by once washing followed by salt water spray.
When placing on tiles or wood, the substrate must be protected for the first time from rust markings, as the rust in the rain will drip down the substrate. This subsides after a few months, but we always recommend paying attention.
The beautiful red color gradually changes with the weeks, months and years, and you can therefore experience your products change color.
High -beds, plant basins and outdoor fixtures in corten steel
Whether you plant in wood or steel beds makes no difference. The steel can give off a bit of rust at the edge of the bed, but not something that is dangerous for neither plants nor soil.
A walk in the world's largest cities and latest neighborhoods shows a great trend in the design of outdoor areas. Maintenance -free elements in raw steel look -corten steel. Where we have seen rust in the past as a problem and something to be hidden with paint, we now experience the red color as trendy, welcoming and warm. The red rust color in its look and experience is very similar to wood, but with better properties in durability and maintenance. Rusty iron look - corten steel - is the very hot material of the time. At Byjema we love the Corten look!
Galvanized steel - or galva as we call it - is a known treatment of steel where a zinc treatment makes the metal extra hardy and maintenance -free. All Byjema Galva products are made of hot galvanized plate cut on laser, bent and bolted together.
As the hot galvanized surface is broken by laser cutting, in joints there may be some form of rusting. You could say that approx. 1/3 part of the galvanization is "pulled" through the cut and thereby will be approx. 2/3 part bare steel back. Over time, this cut will develop a form of corrosion and get a darker color than the other plate parts. Incidentally, in the same way that the galvanized surface over time changes color from a shiny surface to a more matte surface. All Byjema products, plant basins and steel benches are designed with these cuts in mind. Thus, the cuts are all uniform and tried to be stored via the buck on the Cuby series, while in the Edgy series they are highlighted with a small cut line at the top and bottom of the corners.
Don't worry about the shelf life of galvanized steel plate. It is extremely durable in the harsh Scandinavian climate, and possibly. Scratches - or cut for that matter - have the ability to repair itself as the zinc continues to develop a protective layer.
Once in a while, you may want to clean the galva plates with lukewarm water and a soft cloth or sponge. Never use detergent on the surface.
If soil, sand and dirt have sat 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.
High -beds, plant basins and outdoor fixtures in galvanized steel
Whether you plant in wood or steel beds makes no difference. The steel can emit a bit of rust or zinc at the edge of the bed, but not something that is dangerous for neither plants nor soil.
Galvanized steel has for many years been the most used material for steel in outdoor environments. The glossy surface is beautiful for most architecture. We are proud that we at Byjema have a complete series of plant basins, plant boxes and highbeds in galvanized steel.

Do the corten steel damage the plants?
You can grow and plant all kinds of vegetables and plants in this plant box. Steel is a natural material and will not release toxic substances to your vegetables. If you are in doubt anyway, we recommend that you for the box with a plastic wrap, flamingo, insulation mat or similar. This will also isolate the soil from the sides of the box and extend the life.
Corten steel is generally not harmful to the plants as it is a corrosion -resistant material that does not release harmful chemicals or metals. However, it may be important to examine the pH value of the soil and add soil-enhancing materials if needed, as corten steel may tend to lower the soil's pH value.
It is also important to provide good drainage in the plant boxes and high beds, as corten steel can rust if it is persistently wet.
It is also recommended to prune the plants regularly and provide good ventilation in the plant boxes and high beds so that the plants are not suffocated by excess moisture.

Zinc, which is used in galvanization, can be harmful to the plants at high concentrations, but in the small amounts present in galvanized steel, it is unlikely to have a detrimental effect.If you are in doubt anyway, we recommend that you for the box with a plastic wrap, flamingo, insulation mat or similar.
