ROOT BARRIERS, FLEXIBLE WATERPROOF CUT-OFF WALLS
Since 1992 Root Barrier has created barriers to allow buildings and infrastructure to cohabit happily side by side with trees. Root Barrier now provides a proven flexible waterproof cut-off wall which separates building foundations from the effects of plants and seasonal variation in clay soils.
Additional products we have developed include Under Path Growth Inhibitors (UPGI) for use under concrete paths and around service trenches. This material passes the EPA requirements, is environmentally friendly, economical and best of all, it works.
Technical support, material supply only or a complete supply and install service are available.
