To comment intelligently about a specific application, one need to know the
entire context. My comments were general, and may or may not be applicable
to the context, which was not stated in the initial post. Vertical barriers
are one thing, for example, but wrapping around a pipe could be something
very different.

I have found that any kind of barrier to the development of a normal root
system *can* lead to catastrophic failure. Not to say that they should be
banned; only that careful consideration should be given to the facts of
each context.

Hi All,
Am currently involved in a project where 150m of root barrier will need
to
be installed in a car park.
They're having trouble finding contractors to quote.
Does anyone know of a good contractor I can contact?

Cheers Trevor
