A variety of Platipus underground Rootball Fixing Systems were chosen to secure the numerous green spaces between the pavilions inside the Expo. Platipus systems were able to provide a clean finish to this prestigious project and also ensured the trees were safely anchored in this large public space.

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”
