Description Q & A Description

Bamboo Root Barrier is ideal for keeping your bamboo plant in check without it running all over the garden. The root/rhizome barrier is made of a specialist membrane that is incredibly tough but also very flexible.

  • Sophisticated composite membrane
  • Triple coated twin reinforced thermally bonded layers
  • Extremely tough and durable
  • Puncture resistant, Impermeable
  • Flexible barrier against root penetration
  • Highly resistant to natural acids, alkalis, bacteria and fungi
  • Controls the spread of invasive plants

We would recommend using this Bamboo Root Barrier when planting any Phyllostachys, Sasa, Pseudosasa or Hibanobambusa bamboo, but it won't be necessary for any of the clump-forming bamboos such as Fargesia or Chusquea.

Bamboo root barrier is a sophisticated composite membrane consisting of triple coating and twin reinforcing layers thermally bonded together to produce an extremely tough, durable and puncture resistant impermeable, flexible barrier against bamboo root penetration.

Root barrier offers the strength and durability of a ground engineering fabric with the impenetrability of a geomembrane. The fabric is also highly resistant to natural acids, alkalis, bacteria and fungi

Root barrier is a tough, flexible and puncture resistant barrier which is highly resistant to root penetration and designed to protect structures and services from tree root damage, as well as controlling the spread of invasive plants (Such as Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed, Mares Tail and Bamboo).

We were very worried about the spreading of out of control bamboo but followed your advice and purchased the control barrier from yourselves for a raised bed. Not only did one of your helpful chaps show us how to fit it (on his way home!) he also pruned one of our other bamboos for us, it now looks wonderfully showy, we didnt realise you could prune them this way! Bamboo seems to be contained so far so good! Many thanks, Jinny & Gordon Hove
