Why use root barrier for bamboo?
Certain species of bamboo (esp. running varieties) can prove highly invasive in a UK garden. Bamboo barriers can be used to prevent the spread of the plant beyond a specific area. For example, for use as a physical vertical barrier that blocks the bamboo to ensure that it does not return from a neighbour's garden after it has been excavated from your own.
Barriers for bamboo roots (or rhizome) can also be used to contain ‘wanted’ bamboo plants without the fear of them spreading. Where removal is the desire, bamboo barrier can be used in combination with excavation of bamboo runners and herbicide treatment for better control.

Top Tips for effectively installing a Bamboo Root Barrier
- Put it in deep enough, most Bamboo rhizome (root) can still be seen at a depth of 30-40cm so we suggest that you aim for at least 50cm of root barrier depth.
- Make sure that you have root barrier protruding above ground level. Bamboo rhizome (areal roots) will, by their nature, hop over the barrier, so it's very wise to inspect the root barrier to see that Bamboo is behaving itself.
- Completely encircle Bamboo or ensure that barrier extends past the Bamboo that is to be retained. If the root barrier does not encircle the retained Bamboo, it is very wise to inspect and make sure that the Bamboo does not spread or send runners out to breach the extremities of the barrier.
- Ensure all rhizome (roots) that are on the wrong side of the barrier are chased out and removed as they will continue to grow and may give the impression that the barrier is ineffective.
Don't let bamboo take over your property.
