I have recently planted a large curry leaf plant in a sheltered area of my garden, which is about 1 meter from my house foundation wall. Our house was built on concrete stumps 6 years ago. I am not sure if a root barrier was used in the making or not. I just found out that curry leaf tree has invasive roots and worrying about the choice of my planted area if this can cause structural damage to my house. We live in rural Victoria (Wurruk) and I have seen reasonable sized curry leaf trees in 2 friend's houses not too far from us. Can you suggest if I keep the size of tree small by regular trimming of the branches, or can that restrict root growth in future?
Thank you for your time.
