Root Barrier Systems
Protect Your Houston Foundation
What is BioBarrier - Root Barrier Protection
BioBarrier is a total root control product that will protect your property from damage that is caused by the expansion and growth of tree roots. This is a specially-designed geotextile fabric with timed-release microcapsules of trifluralin that embeds itself into the root, stopping new cell division at the root tip. This product does not harm the tree and is safe around pets.
My Tree’s Roots Are Destroying My Property; Can This Be Stopped?
Yes, with a BioBarrier System, you can stop tree roots from destroying your property. Many neighborhoods in Houston and the surrounding areas are filled with beautiful mature trees, but these trees can cause damage to foundations.
Tree root damage is very common in the Houston area, especially in outlying areas, such as Sugarland, Katy, Spring, and Clear Lake. Your property doesn’t have to be sacrificed in order to have a beautiful landscape.
Installing the BioBarrier System
- A trench is dug along the property where the roots can affect the home.
- Then, the BioBarrier is installed.
- Once the Root Barrier is secured in the trench, our team begins covering up the trench and putting items back in place.
- The home is now safe from intruding roots, and it looks like we were never there.
Once the root barrier system is in place, it protects your property by stopping root growth. Our BioBarrier System doesn’t have any damaging effects to trees.
What Does This System Protect?
- Home foundations
- Swimming pools
