Deadman System Plati-Mat®


Inquire Online



Designed to satisfy the requirements of a specialist market, traditional deadmen systems have enabled Platipus to offer effective solutions for planting in difficult urban environments, where buried services may be a problem. 

The systems use kerbstones or sleepers as anchor points and providing that the soil placed on top of the kerbstones or sleepers has been well compacted before placing the tree in the pit, the systems offer a fast and efficient method of securing rootball trees up to 12 metres high.

What application am I best suited for? 

 I am a versatile anchoring system and can be used in most applications. However, my specialty is planting in difficult urban environments, where buried services may be a problem. I am also ideal for planter boxes and podiums. My kerbstone or sleepers allow flexibility and choice for planting.

“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.”
