Top Tips for effective Bamboo Root Barrier

  • Put it in deep enough, most Bamboo rhizome (root) can still be seen at a depth of 30-40cm so we suggest that you aim for at least 50cm of root barrier depth. 

  • Make sure that you have root barrier protruding above ground level. Bamboo rhizome (areal roots) will, by their nature, hop over the barrier, so it's very wise to inspect the root barrier to see that Bamboo is behaving itself.

  • Completely encircle Bamboo or ensure that barrier extends past the Bamboo that is to be retained. If the root barrier does not encircle the retained Bamboo, it is very wise to inspect and make sure that the Bamboo does not spread or send runners out to breach the extremities of the barrier.

  • Ensure all rhizome (roots) that are on the wrong side of the barrier are chased out and removed as they will continue to grow and may give the impression that the barrier is ineffective.  

Advantages of using root barrier for Bamboo

  • Creates a physical vertical barrier to block Bamboo

  • Ensures that Bamboo can't return to your property from a neighbours garden after it has been excavated in your own garden

  • A Bamboo Barrier is great for containing Bamboo provided it's correctly installed (check out our top tips above)

  • It can be used in conjunction with herbicides and excavation of bamboo runners
