Keep your garden bench secure with the Earth Anchors Ground Anchor Kit for Soft Ground. Completely concrete free and suitable for easy DIY installation, Ground Anchors hold your garden bench firmly in place – perfect for permanent positioning all year long. Anchoring your garden bench also helps to discourage vandals, providing peace of mind against theft.
All our Ground Anchor Kits come with security screws. Unlike normal screws, which can be tightened and untightened, security screws can only be tightened. This means you’ll have to be exact when installing the anchor kit to your bench, as the screws aren’t designed to be worked loose. Once fitted however, your garden bench is securely in position and can't be unscrewed.
This version of the Ground Anchor Kit is suitable for use on soft ground, providing a stable sitting platform on grass or mud.
Ground Anchor Kits can be installed with minimal DIY skill. All you need is a screwdriver, drill, and a hammer. The necessary fittings are provided along with tamperproof security screws for added protection. Security screws only tighten one way and cannot be unscrewed. Because of this, when attaching the brackets to your garden bench, we recommend using regular screws first to create pilot holes for the security screws. Once the pilot holes have been made, use the security screws to secure the brackets to the legs of your garden bench. If you intend to move your bench at a later date, we recommend using the cross-point screws instead of the security screws.
Once the brackets are fitted, position the anchor through the bracket and hammer it down about half way. Place a chisel inside the anchor and hammer it fully into the ground. This will trigger the fluke, an arrow-headed shaft that drives into the ground at an angle to provide additional stability. To avoid misalignment, it's always best to attach the brackets to your bench before deciding where to install it.
