Manufactured from durable HDPE, Root Barrier Sheet Material creates a water and root barrier to prevent costly damage to pavements, roads, and building foundations caused by water and roots. The 20-foot-long sheets of material are ideal for linear style planting applications, and are equally suited for individual tree planting use.
NDS ROOT BARRIER OPTIONS: EP Series-BEST, RP Series-BETTER, SM Series-GOOD
- Height: 24"
- Length: 20'
- Manufactured from up to 50% recycled HDPE with UV inhibitors
- Thickness: 0.040 - 0.060"
- Ribs: Vertical integrated and flared molded 90 root deflecting ribs protrude 1/2" from wall and are placed 6"-8" apart
- A root impervious molded end provides easy assembly using staples or a sealant design to bind to HDPE (a dual-sided solvent-based tape).
- Color: Black
Cut desired length of molded roll material. Connect the ends by overlapping two 6" sections with the leading rib cut directly down the middle. If using a sealant to seal the ends, utilize a dual-sided solvent-based tape (like that sold byTuff Industries, Inc.). Install by placing the Sheet Material around root ball at a sufficient distance to allow proper backfill – the vertical integrated root-deflecting ribs should always be facing the root ball.
Linear/Root Pruning Application:
Cut desired length of molded roll material and install directly adjacent to hardscape being protected
