SKU MM-HDPE-18-80-100

Our root guards for tree roots are designed to contain even the most stubborn roots and prohibit them from damaging nearby patios, driveways, hardscape and sensitive landscapes. The barrier is constructed from durable HDPE and is available in a number of different heights ranging from 18” to 48”. The root guard has a minimum thickness of 80 mil, allowing it to repel even the most stubborn tree roots. The guard is designed to be placed vertically in the ground with 1” - 2” sticking up above ground. This is to allow the person maintaining the property to visually monitor the installation and catch any surface roots if they try to jump the barrier.

The material is made in the USA.

 

Note: Our HDPE plastic is only available in roll widths up to 60 inches.

Please note that we are unable to provide custom roll lengths.

Connecting HDPE Pieces

There are two ways to connect multiple pieces of HDPE together. One method is to overlap the HDPE and use our double sided seam tape to connect the two pieces. The other method is to butt the ends together and use our 17 mil single sided seam tape to create a solid connection.

Overlap Method
(for underground installations)

The overlap method is best used when connecting two pieces of HDPE in a buried application. Due to the overlap, a ridge is exposed which is not ideal when installed in exposed vertical or flat installations in high traffic areas as there is a possibility of an object catching on the ridge and pulling the two pieces apart.

In a below ground installation, the large overlap area provides a more water resistant connection as well as enhanced protection against tree and plant root intrusion.

End to End Method
(for exposed installations)

When installing HDPE on a wall, floor or anywhere that is exposed, the end to end method provides a secure connection and does not leave any ridges exposed to potential catching by a person or object.
