How does root protection work?

Root Protection is installed around Trees to contain the root ball within a determined area based on tree species.

What effect does root protection have on my plantings?

In order to determine the most cost effective and long term return on your investment we need to know your plant species, landscape plan, and general use of the area.

What are the benefits for a contractor to use root protection?

When utilized properly Root protection will protect your underground utilities, septic systems, hardscaping, curbing, or whatever structure you install it near. Some hardscape contractors are offering a longer warranty with use of the Biobarrier product.
