Guy Fixing System

Platipus Guy Fixing System Wynn Palace 2 300x224 1 Citygreen

Guy fixing kits are available in a range of sizes to suit most high quality tree transplants up to 20m high. These kits are fast and easy to install, offer effective support for trees in highly exposed areas and for trees which require correction against leaning.

A simple drive rod and tension lever is required for installation although powered machinery is recommended for multiple installations and for G3 / G4 kits. We are happy to recommend kits for particular applications and soil conditions.

The annual threat of hurricanes & typhoons has meant that around the world, there is a requirement to provide additional above ground support to trees in exposed locations such as pool decks, raised p lanters and roof gardens. We work closely with the Client and Landscape Architect to ensure the correct solution is specified. This could involve field trials on-site to test anchor suitability and may result in a variety of systems being specified (i.e.extra depth, 4 leg variants, permanent stainless components). Our typhoon systems have been tested during field trials and installations with no adverse effect on the symmetry or stability of the trees and palms.

“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.”

- Sandra Smith, Principal Landscape Architect, City Of Monash -
