Knotweed Root Barrier Membrane - U.S. Examples?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of knotweed root barrier membranes being used in the United States? Either by contractors or municipalities for large projects. There is a new road going in through an acre lot contaminated with F. japonica in Kalamazoo County and they are interested in mitigating it the best way possible. Thanks!

I haven't heard about them in the US, and would be pretty skeptical--with knotweeds sprouting through concrete and asphalt, and anecdotal evidence of even puncturing trailer tires (the landowner who told me that didn't get photos, I'm very upset), I would be REALLY impressed if they found a barrier that really worked.
