Are we talking "curtain" barriers or barriers to keep roots out of pipes?

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
