Ficus Tree Root Barrier


SKU LV-18-80-100

Our Ficus Tree Root Barrier is constructed of thick plastic made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and shipped in roll form. This 80 mil thick barrier is used to protect landscapes and hardscapes from local tree root damage. The barrier blocks tree roots from growing in that particular direction and the roots will divert into another direction. It is non-biodegradable and commercial grade and will not rot, mildew and is puncture resistant.
