A root barrier is indispensable if you want to plant bamboo in your garden. The mat ensures that roots of plants grow downwards and do not start to proliferate, otherwise rising roots and rhizomes will push up tiles and paving stones. Since bamboo is a fast growing plant, it is certainly advisable to use a root border in your garden.
Placing the border is simple. The mat is placed vertically in the ground, around the bamboo and so you determine to what point the bamboo may grow. When using the bamboo border, it is important that the top of the mat is always slightly above the ground. This prevents the roots from growing over the border and escaping.
The root barrier is supplied on a roll and is available in various sizes. Also view our non-invasive bamboo!
