Description

A range of rigid, one-piece tree root protection barriers, available in four sizes.

  • Designed for the protection of pavements and hard landscaped areas.
  • Manufactured from recycled 100% plastic.
  • The barrier is constructed as a one piece component resulting in a simple installation.
