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