Problem Solved: Neat and Tidy Landscapes

At Barrier Group we take problem solving seriously - when others might be wiping their hands of your problems, we are just rolling up our sleeves.

The Problem

Barrier Groups very own managing director, Rick Hall, was having some frustrations every time he would set out on his ride-on lawn mower to tidy up his yard.

Rick was constantly having to reclaim all the mulch lost by wind and birds before he even started mowing around these his tree bases.

He knew if he was having these issues, others surely would also.

While researching some steel tree rings Rick realised that most of the solutions in todays market didn't quite cover all his pre-requisites.

Ricks wish-list included: b2ap3_thumbnail_mulch-mess.jpg

  1. No additional trimming from hand held trimmers

  2. Easy to install and relocate

  3. Use with both new and established trees

  4. Stops rabbits from attacking tree roots

  5. Prevent the loss of mulch from birds

Barrier Groups industrial design team took on the challenge.

The Solution

Mulch & Mow Rings major features include:

  • Design allows close up lawnmower edging so there's no need for additional trimming

  • Heavy duty two-piece construction means they can be retro-fitted to larger established trees

  • Installed in minutes using basic tools and the fittings providedb2ap3_thumbnail_mulch-mow-rings-2.jpg

  • Hot dipped galvanised for many years of service

  • Prevents birds and small animals scratching and spreading mulch

  • Retained mulch maintains moisture at the tree roots for longer periods

  • Reduces the ability of rabbits to dig and attack tree roots

  • Completely eliminates ring barking of trees by lawn mowers and trimmers

These galvanised steel tree rings are a unique design that guarantees your landscape will always be neat and tidy.
