Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for over 40 Years


Landscape, Tree Anchoring & Irrigation

Since first pioneering the concept of underground tree anchoring in 1983, Platipus have designed, manufactured and supplied systems to secure, stabilize and irrigate trees on prestigious projects as well as thousands of smaller and private sites all over the world. Some examples of our prestigious projects include:

  • Olympic Games & World Athletics Championships 2017, London, UK
  • Franklin D Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, New York, USA
  • Expo Milan, Milan, Italy
  • The Garden Show, Burg, Germany
  • City Walk, Dubai, UAE
  • Edward Street, Brisbane, Australia

By securing the rootball underground, our systems allow for quick root development resulting in very low mortality rates for newly planted trees. A comprehensive range of kits and installation tools are available to provide above and below ground anchoring for standard and semi-mature tree transplants up to 65.5ft (20m) high. With continuous innovation we have developed high quality standard tree anchoring solutions for on-grade and on-structure, large palm trees or typhoon locations and permanent tree anchoring situations.
