Our designs are intended to show to best effect sweet peas, roses, clematis,honeysuckle vines and other climbing plants.
Each of our range of structures is hand-crafted from solid steel bar which will rust and mature over time to a glorious golden patina.
Now is the time to combine nature with art through the use of rusted steel supports designed for function and form to add height and year round interest in your garden.
Have a browse through our site and if you think we might be able to help you enhance your outdoor spaces, please contact us for further information.
Here is a selection of our constantly evolving 'standard' designs. If none of these exactly suits your needs, please call us to discuss your requirements.
After years of astounding the motoring world with his innovative designs, Jake Challenger has cast his unique ideas into the world of Gardening. With the increase of new structural forms to complement the natural world, Jake has designed a specialised range of 'statement' ornaments through his new company CCRustics. Some of his influence has been through the Arts and Craft movement of the 1880s coupled with interpretations for producing his own one-off designs. His aim is to blend the formal structure of natural oxidising steel to enhance the plants which nature provides. Most of his creations are to allow plants to grow naturally up through his structures while providing support and shelter to exploit their full potential.
With a range of designs from the Coronet Plant Support to the amazing 'Rennie' Tower there is something for every individual's garden. Each piece weathers differently, so we can honestly say that each piece is unique. If you require a single one-off design or help in formulating your own inspirational idea - Jake 'The Metal Man' is the man for the job.
