Gardener’s Blue Ribbon® Sturdy Root Guard


Gardener’s Blue Ribbon®’s Sturdy Root Guard is made of heavy 1/16 inch plastic for installation around the bases of new or small circumference trees. Once in place, the ventilated barrier allows trees to continue regular respiration while protecting it from accidental lawn mower and weed trimmer damage.


Installation is simple. Wrap the guard around the base of the tree for instant protection. Since the guard isn’t permanently fastened, it will unfurl up to a 12 inch circumference as the tree grows.

The Sturdy Root Guard will not hinder tree growth.



To properly install the Sturdy Root Guard, bury a little more than half of the 7.69-inch-tall root guard around the base of tree. The durable 1/16 inch plastic is cured so it naturally “rolls” around the trunk. Once in the ground, the roots and trunk base are protected by the barrier from accidental lawnmower hits and strikes from weed trimmer line. As the tree grows and widens over the years, the Sturdy Root Guard will slowly unwrap itself and never “choke” the tree or hinder its growth.® is the leading supplier of gardening supplies and outdoor living accessories.
