Rhizome Barrier

Bamboo, especially running types of bamboo, are a beautiful and vibrant addition to your garden, and make for excellent, long lasting, living privacy screens. However, unchecked root spreading without proper containment can be destructive to property and neighbor relationships alike!

Rhizomes are woody, creeping underground stems of the bamboo that put out lateral shoots and underground roots, and act as a form of plant reproduction. Even a tiny chunk of rhizome left in the ground can create a whole new bamboo stand in a matter of years!

Rhizome barrier, properly installed and secured with a steel strap, is our preferred and highly effective method for lasting containment and control of bamboo. Bamboo rhizomes will not penetrate the smooth surface of this thick geomembrane, effectively stopping and diverting root spread.

Please see the table below for pricing structure, and be sure to read our thorough guides about Installing Barrier and Containment & Control.
