Plastic Piling

Planet 14 Landscapes uses an innovative plastic sheet piling system

The plastic piling is manufactured solely in the UK and is made from 100% recycled plastic and has a number of benefits over traditional steel, timber or concrete piling; mainly cost, durability, ease of handling and environmental. The product is non-degradable and lends itself perfectly to the reinstatement of river banks, ponds, lakes, moats, jettys and marinas or where water erosion may occur

Planet 14 Landscapes is able to supply the plastic piling system and install nationwide. The plastic piling system can also be useful on land. Using a tie back system, the piles can be installed to retain soil or create tiers, such as golf tees or large grass featured on larger landscape projects.
