Water Barriers protect hardscapes and landscapes from subterranean water movement. When used around building foundations they prevent tree and plant root intrusion and maintain water equilibrium. The impermeable geomembrane is also ideal for golf course construction to separate the greens from invasive grass and clay soils.
Caution: The DeepRoot Water Barrier will not turn tree roots downward for subsequent lateral growth, which firmly anchors the tree. If the water barrier is to be used near a tree a local arborist should be consulted.
*If there’s a size or thickness of Water Barrier you don’t see here that you’d like, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your need.
