Growth Tech distributes ‘ Root Controllers' bags and Weed Stopper week control mats.

THE Root Controllers BAG SYSTEM 


Trees are planted in the Root Controllers bag. As the roots grow they extend to the fabric wall where a callous is formed. Only fine feeder roots penetrate the bag to absorb water and nutrients. The strong base diverts any downward growing roots. Growth within the Root Controllers bag occurs naturally as irrigation or natural rainfall controls moisture levels in the growing media.

How Root Control Bags Work


Harvesting the trees from the field is easy – specialized machinery is unnecessary for lifting most trees. Two persons can usually complete the lifting of mature trees from the ground. A narrow trench is dug around the bag and the root growth is pruned from the outside of the bag before lifting. The bag may be cut and removed for immediate planting or secured around the root-ball for transport.

Weed Stoppers Weed Mat

Weed mats are used extensively in nurseries, landscaping, commercial, horticultural and domestic gardens to control the growing of weeds without the need for chemicals.

Weed mats allow moisture and air to pass through into the soil but act as a physical barrier blocking the light required for weed growth.

Weed mats are available in the following standard sizes:
