I'm sure we've all seen a sidewalk that has had portions of it cracked an pushed up due to the growth of roots from a nearby tree. Similar effects happen to all sorts of other structures, because there is nothing in place to prevent the roots from causing damage. This is where Biobarrier comes in. Biobarrier is an advanced long-term root control system which incorporates time-release nodules. When strategically placed in the soil, it prevents structural damage from root encroachment, without causing damage to the roots or tree. Effective life of Biobarrier is 15 years (minimum) or more depending on the location.
Though the ideal times to install Biobarrier are when a tree is first planted or when backfilling, Biobarrier can still be easily installed for older trees. Simply dig a small trench along the structure to be protected, and slip the fabric vertically into the opening. Cover, tamp and rake over. That's really about all there is to it. Plus, the flexibility of the fabric allows you to shape and form the root control system to virtually any configuration.
Biobarrier is an excellent root control system for many landscaping situations. Examples include swimming pools, gardens, cemeteries, tennis courts, and building foundations. Biobarrier is sold by the roll. Root control is another great service that you can offer your customers!
