Plantex® RootBarrier

Efficient root barrier

DuPont™ Plantex® RootBarrier is a coated non-woven structure, ideal for preventing invasive growth and damage by aggressive plant roots, e.g. bamboo.

This efficient root barrier protects underground drainage, sewage, piping and cable systems from root invasion and damage.
By controlling the growth of aggressive rooting plants and trees, Plantex® RootBarrier also protects patios, paved areas, asphalted surfaces as well as buildings and utility channels.

This strong, spun material will contain rampant root growth without damaging the plants and without harming the surrounding materials.

Easy to use, Plantex® RootBarrier requires little preparation and once installed can be left maintenance free for many years.
