Roots formation

    2 responses

Sab starts with ...
I am planting custard apple, sapote,avocadoes, amla, fig trees between 600mm dia sheet metal which is buried 300mm from ground level to avoid grass roots affecting tree growth. So I believe it will start grow better with in 600mm dia area and it will go down all the roots below 300mm and start spreading without interfering grass roots. What do you think about this? or do you have better suggestion please. Thanks

You will need an Oxy acetelene torch to remove those drum rounds one day -- I use those corrugated garden edgings 25cm deep and makes a 1mt dia circle - I join the ends so i can dismantle one day and will mulch up to them when i do. see pic ----

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, this is only the better option I came at the moment. The sheet metal is not really a strong type, I can cut with cutter. I have used this (raised garden ring)sheet material to protect my reticulation pipe which have buried next to it. But my concerns are about tree growth and it's root formation.

Will it go down all the roots below 300mm(from ground level) and start spreading without interfering grass roots. Do some one reckon will this work 50% or above or below in the longterm...Please share your opinions. Thanks
