Many of Australia’s trees, bushes and other varieties of plants take in a lot of water when faced with adverse conditions. This means that once the water is depleted from one part of the soil, the roots will begin to disperse to obtain more water. This dispersion of roots can cause significant damage to other plants, as well as walls, footpaths, and driveways. To prevent damage from root systems, install a root barrier.
Our Root Control Barrier consists of a flexible High-Density Polythene membrane designed to restrict the unwanted movement of root growth. As well as this, Root Control Barrier is lightweight and easy to install and maintain, and it is a far less expensive and flexible solution to invasive root growth than more difficult solutions such as sheet metal and concrete.
Features and Benefits:
Stops the spread of roots to unwanted areas
Reduces damage to walkways, driveways, garden beds, roads, and infrastructure
Easy to install, can be cut to shape and is cost-effective
Joined by butyl tape to form a tight seal, blocking moisture and vapour
UV stabilized, high-density polyethylene to ensure long-term protection
Root Control Barrier retains moisture around the root ball
All of the features of the Root Control Barrier are designed to allow it to prevent invasive root growth from causing any damage while still allowing it to easily integrate into its environment.

Am I able to use a root barrier on planted, mature trees? No. Root Barrier is an effective solution before a tree becomes too mature, as the perimeter of the root system is too difficult to locate. Root Barrier can be installed at any time when protecting structures such as footpaths.
As well as tree roots, what other plants would benefit from root barrier installation? Root barrier could also be used to limit the spreading of Kikuyu grass. This type of grass has aggressive growth and is considered a noxious weed in many areas.
Is there a possibility that a root barrier can harm my tree? Yes. If the root barrier is placed too close to the tree, it can restrict the roots and inhibit growth or worse kill the plant.
Where is the root barrier material sourced from? Our Root Barrier is Australian made. They are made from durable polymer plastic that is UV resistant and designed for the Australian climate.
Will I need to purchase the butyl tape separately? Yes. The butyl tape is highly recommended as its pressure-sensitive and creates a moisture-resistant seal.
Does the root barrier come with a warranty? All of our products have a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty.
On average, how long can I expect my root barrier to last? Root Barrier is made from flexible, UV stabilised High-Density Polythene and can last extremely long periods. They are a permanent solution which shouldn’t need replacing
