Our Non-Permeable Root Barrier - FlexiRoot


What Is 'FlexiRoot' Root Barrier?

The most common Root Barriers are non-permeable and highly puncture resistant so the roots cannot penetrate the barrier. Commonly made using interwoven polyethylene.  Correct installation is vital when using a non-permeable root barrier due to the risk of damage and potentially puncturing the root barrier. 


A Root Barrier that is flexible yet strong enough to use against notoriously invasive plants like Bamboo, Giant Hogweed and others is essential. This is why we offer the Root Barrier that ticks all of the boxes. Flexible enough to install without too much hassle, strong enough to resist the toughest of roots and most importantly non-permeable.
