What is a barrier for Japanese knotweed?
A Japanese knotweed root barrier, usually a geotextile or membrane, is material barrier used to block the roots and rhizomes of the highly invasive plant. The knotweed barrier can be installed vertically to prevent spread from neighbouring properties, or horizontally further to the removal of knotweed rhizome as an extra preventative measure. Only specialist products that have been tested specifically as root barrier for Japanese knotweed and installed by a professional root barrier installation company are advised.
Stopping Japanese knotweed encroachment is fundamental since spreading this weed from one property to another can be seen as a private nuisance. Our Root Barriers can be installed from 1.2 metres deep to deflect roots. However, we usually recommend at least 2 metres for an effective Japanese Knotweed Barrier.
The significant benefit of our CuTex Root Barrier is that it is permeable so it can be laid horizontally. Designed to be used below ground, CuTex must be returned vertically to the surface in most applications.
CuTex is very robust and resistant to many forms of damage when compared to non-permeable barriers making CuTex ideal for lining Knotweed barrier burial cells. We can design and specify burial cells from cubic volumes. We also offer on and off-site welding to make up large format barriers.
