Root barrier: Easy to use, and with a guaranteed effect
Let roots develop only where they should. Gutta’s Plantex root barrier prevents unwanted uncontrolled growth, protects buildings and pipes, effectively separates lawns and planting areas, and prevents raspberries and other plants from proliferating. The material is environmentally friendly and long-lasting.
Comprehensive protection with a root barrier
The root barrier protects against overgrowth, for example
- in parks and facilities
- when protecting cables and cable systems
- when protecting buildings, walls and fences
- in ornamental flower beds
- on paths and in courtyards
Environmentally friendly and well protected
The root barrier consists of a non-woven structure that is coated on one side. As such, it prevents uncontrolled growth and any damage which may result from bamboo and/or other aggressive root systems. The root barrier also protects lines, sewers and drainage systems, and asphalt or paved areas from damage by root systems. Bamboo roots and those of other shrubs can cause devastating and costly damage. Gutta’s root barrier controls this growth and conducts it into ordered pathways, protecting your walkways, pavement and asphalt surfaces, buildings and underground cable systems.
Lay root barrier simply by yourself
Gutta root barrier is a strong, chemically neutral spun material that successfully shifts root growth downward.
Root barrier is easy to lay and keeps for years. Follow these simple instructions to lay root barrier:
Vertical installation of the root barrier
Dig a hole about 70 cm deep. The diameter depends on the size of the plant.
Insert the root barrier vertically, with the green side facing the roots. Make sure the Plantex root barrier is folded at the point where the tape was applied. Fill up about two-thirds of the hole with soil (depending on the size of the plant).
Insert the plant and fill the hole with soil until 2 cm of the Plantex root barrier protrudes above the surface.
