Description

 

Bamboo Root Barrier 60 Mil is an effective product developed to control the spread of bamboo rhizomes (roots) for smaller growing running bamboo that matures at 20-25 feet or under in height. For larger growing Phyllostachys bamboo you should have a circumference (distance around the planting bed) of at least 30 feet. The barrier has a smooth surface on the side facing your bamboo planting. It is made from HDPE, high-density polyethylene. This material is far superior to metals because it will not rust and is much easier to install.

There are natural methods to control and grow bamboo. To find out more click here

Installation Instructions

 

1 - Using paint marker, field marker or a garden hose to outline the shape of the area in which you want your bamboo to grow. Keep in mind that the larger the mature size of a specific species or variety of bamboo the larger the contained area will need to be for the bamboo to reach its full potential. For larger growing Phyllostachys bamboo you should have a circumference (distance around the planting bed) of at least 30 feet. 

2 - Using a trenching shovel or a motorized trenching machine, dig a trench to precisely 22 inches deep around the perimeter of your planting bed. The trench can be anywhere from 8 to 12 inches wide. 

3 - Place the barrier in the trench. The barrier is 24 inches tall so should stand 2 inches above ground level. This prohibits the bamboo rhizomes (roots) from growing over the top without being detected and also serves as an edger to contain mulch applied. 

4 - Attach the ends of the barrier together using a 24" Barrier Clamp.
