When tree roots can't be damaged, we have a solution. We can build a pathway over the top.
You will see in these photos steel plates have been placed over garden mulch to protect the roots.
We then put emulsion on the steel plates to bind the asphalt. Then we lay asphalt over the top to form the pathway.
Here is an example from a job we recently completed in Newmarket.
