New & Old Trees
    Trees are a costly and major part of your landscape. Trees provide shade, privacy, and beauty but a tree in the wrong place can become an expensive problem in years to come.

The ultimate size and shape of the mature tree, how much annual maintenance it will require, the location in your yard, and the purpose you intend are among the many considerations when selecting a tree.

Many species with a wide variety of characteristics are suitable for our area.

Bio Barrier Root Control System
1) Bio Barriers are made of a durable, non-woven, polypropylene geotextile fabric with permanently attached nodules containing trifluralin. Trifluralin prevents root tip cells from dividing, which is the method by which roots grow. The nodules are engineered to slowly release the trifluralin, creating a zone where root growth is inhibited. The geotextile fabric is porous to allow air, nutrients and water through it so that soil hydrology can continue to be healthy.

Characteristics:
For more than 30 years, trifluralin has been used between rows of food crops to prevent weed growth; because of this extensive use and numerous research projects, much is known about it. It has an EPA toxicity rating of class IV, the “practically nontoxic” class (acute oral: LD50, (rats) > 10,000 mg/kg), making it slightly more toxic than sugar but less than salt. Trifluralin has an extremely low water solubility of 0.3 PPM, making it unlikely to leach. It tightly attaches to soil, so it doesn’t tend to migrate, and it decomposes in six months or less, so it doesn’t persist in the ground.

2) Bio Barrier Root Control System prevents tree roots from growing in a zone around the fabric. Placed between a tree root and the area to be protected, such as a sidewalk, road, building, golf course green or anywhere that roots can cause damage, Bio Barrier creates a barrier that causes roots to grow in another direction. Unlike solid barriers, it does not need to protrude above ground where it could be a tripping hazard and costly liability. Because it is a flexible geotextile fabric.

Foundation cracks related to tree roots

   
Tree roots are hard to predict where they will grow, but if near your foundation, chances are they will grow straight to it. Moisture is the number one reason why trees seek the foundation. Unfortunately, this causes serious problems in the future.
Arbor Landscaping Root Barriers Houston, Texas

Tree roots can heave foundations and/or cause
cracking by pushing against foundations from the outside.

If the roots are under the footing, cutting down the tree can lead to
rotting of the roots and lead to subsequent re-settling of the foundations.
