DeepRoot Tree Root Barriers are patented mechanical guides that redirect tree roots down and away from hardscapes, preventing costly root damage while preserving the health and beauty of mature trees. Our Tree Root Barriers are used for linear, surround and root pruning applications on both new plantings and existing trees.
Linear application - Provide maximum hardscape protection while utilizing all available rooting space for improved tree health by placing barriers in a straight line directly along the hardscape to be protected.
Surround application - Protect hardscapes that surround a planting on all four sides. Plan to line the perimeter of the planting area with the panels – this provides the maximum available uncompacted soil volume for immediate root growth.
Root pruning application - Root pruning can help prevent injury and preserve existing trees that are causing hardscape damage. Disruptive roots are cleanly cut and removed; linear Root Barrier is then installed.
The most common uses of root barrier are linear, surround, and root pruning applications.
