    Preparing a bid for installation of streetscape trees. One specification requires the use of Surround Style root barriers in all planting pits.

    Have downloaded the information from DeepRoots on spec's and costs of their panels. Have found little else of informative nature about installation. Does seem simple and straightforward regarding procedure of installation.

    However, there is always a catch22, when using a new product and no installation experience to validate job costing for this element of the bid.

    Can someone who has experience with this product provide some information regarding unforeseen installation techniques, quirks or other information that would be of use in estimating the additional time required to assemble these panels, or a time element you've added to previous bids and any info on backfilling problems with these assembled units in place? Thank you.

    With Regards... Devildog
