Instructions for use

Installation instructions

  1. Section off the area that needs to be covered with TenCate Bidim® Weed Stop.
  2. Eradicate all the visible weeds on the first few centimeters.
  3. Level the ground.
  4. Dig a trench, position TenCate Bidim® Weed Stop and anchor it by filling the trench.A
  5. Make sure each strip of TenCate Bidim® Weed Stop overlaps by 20 centimeters.B
  6. Fix the edges of TenCate Bidim® Weed Stop using metal stakes on every meter.C

Placing plants

  1. Decide the positioning of the plants and cut a cross.D For smaller plants or bare rooted plants it may be sufficient to cut a line instead of a cross.
  2. Fold down the edges of the cross and dig a hole big enough for the plant (use a bucket or wheelbarrow to store the soil).
  3. Remove the pot, place the plant, pack the soil and water copiously.
  4. Fold back the edges and fix them with metal stakes (if necessary).
  5. Cover TenCate Bidim® Weed Stop with wood chips or stones.

Instruction for use

  1. Plan the installation of the root barrier to minimize the number of joints required.
  2. Dig a trench to install the root barrier next to existing plants or excavate an area in case new plants are to be installed.
  3. Install TenCate Bidim® Bamboo Stop Pro vertically with the black side facing the roots.A
  4. Make sure to install the root barrier at a depth of at least 70 cm.B
  5. At least 2 cm of TenCate Bidim® Bamboo Stop Pro must be visible above the surface.C
  6. The free space between the plants and TenCate Bidim® Bamboo Stop Pro should be about 2 meters.D

Details make perfection

  1. Ideally, when installing the root barrier, let it protrude 10 - 15 cm and cut it off at the end of the installation. This way you will not end up with an unprotected portion when it settles during filling.
  2. In all cases, cut the barrier 2 cm above ground level, because rhizomes can crawl on the soil surface when they are crossing an obstacle.

Installation instructions

  1. Unroll the product along the length of the area to be covered to avoid excessive cutting.
  2. Make sure you have side overlaps of around 20 cm if the area to be covered is wider than the product.
  3. Draw a floor plan before laying. Choose the most suitable roll width with a few cm to spare.
  4. Unroll the products at a gradient from the top downwards.
  5. Avoid laying the product when there is a strong wind. Weigh it down if necessary.
  6. Drainage: the best results are obtained by placing the geotextile around the gravel to increase the filtration surface.
  7. Do not leave the product lying in the mud, since this reduces the filtering capacity.
  8. Do not leave the product lying in the sun for a longer period of time.

This product is designed to let water through. It is not a seal.
