Rootex Barrier

Rootex Barrier


Rootex barrier width
45 cm (18 inch) (8.50)
90 cm (3 feet) (17.00)
1.80 cm (6 feet) (32.50)

Rootex barrier is normally laid vertically in a trench and can be used in many ways to prevent movement of roots sideways. Unlike other barriers, Rootex allows passing of water and nutrients.
It comes in several widths from 45cm (18 inches), 90cm (3 feet) and 1.8m (6 feet). It is sold by the linear metre.

In most cases the feeder roots that need to be controlled are up to 45cm deep (18 inches). If you are not sure of the depth required then dig a test pit to see how far the roots go down. Remember that many trees have tap roots and these go down almost vertically and it is not normally necessary to control these roots. In certain cases wider rolls will be required such as for drains and building regulations

The wider rolls can also be laid down horizontally in areas where you are trying to stop the roots from coming to the surface
