Horticulture/Soil and Root Barriers

Soil and root barriers are used to control weeds or limit the spread of an aggressive plant.

Surface barriers prevent any exposure to light (and sometimes water), or simply prevent plant shoots from reaching light.

Root zone barriers are vertical barriers that prevent the roots of plants from extending into adjacent areas, and are most often used for running plants such as mints and bamboos.
