ROOT BARRIER

Root Barrier - Root Control and Damage Prevention

Root barrier products direct root growth from shrubs and trees downward, dramatically decreasing the roots' potential to clash with and penetrate nearby hardscapes, walls, or building foundations. The use of NDS root barriers for residential and non-residential landscapes has protected these communities against the high cost of reparations due to cracks in foundations and buckled sidewalks and driveways.

All root barrier products are proudly manufactured in the USA.
