DRAIN SCAN'S UNIQUE LOW-IMPACT ROOT BARRIER INSTALLATION
Drain Scan have developed a lower impact method of root
barrier installation using a slot trenching machine designed and built by Bob
Freeborn, specifically for use with the
Dendro-Scott root barrier system.
As shown in the photos and videos below, installation of the
root barrier material is carried out by digging a narrow trench of 170mm wide up
to 4.3 metres in depth. Where site and soil conditions allow its use, this
method substantially reduces site impact and cost of site restoration.
