Growing Bamboo the Right Way

There’s no denying that growing bamboo can cause tons of problems if not done properly. One wrong move and you could eventually have bamboo growing through your living room floor!

However, there are proper techniques and procedures that you can take to ensure growing bamboo on your property will be a pleasurable experience that will leave you with a beautiful bamboo garden.

Firstly, you must decide on which type of bamboo you want to grow, running bamboo or clumping bamboo. After deciding which type of bamboo you want to grow, you must determine which species of bamboo you are growing. There are over 10 0 species of bamboo varying greatly in characteristics. For example, Phyllostachys Nigra or black bamboo is black in color compared to the traditional green. To determine which type is best suited for you read all about bamboo and the different types at our, What is Bamboo? page. Be sure to pick a species of bamboo that will thrive in your climate.

Next, you must decide if a bamboo barrier is necessary to ensure that bamboo will not overtake your property. This is one of the most important steps when growing bamboo, because choosing the wrong option could costs you thousands of dollars in the future.

You can build a bamboo barrier with many types of materials including concrete, but perhaps the most effective way to contain bamboo when growing bamboo is with a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) barrier.
