They say that "fences make for good neighbors", but bamboo brings another meaning to Robert Frost's quote. I love bamboo but there are two kinds of this beautiful plant: aggressive and less aggressive.
Well, we have a rental property with a nice backyard in Old Kensington. One of our ex-tenants thoughtfully (tongue in cheek) planted an aggressive species and it took over my yard as well as the neighbor's garden.
Oops! Sorry! Bamboo looks so harmless but it grows like crazy and it is difficult to keep tame. A friend of mine told me to call Peter Frey from Garden Hangouts to help clear the out of control bamboo.
"Bamboo is one of the most elegant plants available, and can be used in a variety of design applications. Many cultivars are evergreen thereby making it a great choice for hedges and screening. Bamboo has certainly become a hallmark of contemporary landscape design. However, if not installed/contained properly, it can become an interminable nightmare", says Peter.
Garden Hangouts to the rescue! I now have a beautiful brick patio (who knew?) and a happy neighbor. Give Garden Hangouts a call to come whip your landscape into shape and save you from any bamboo breakouts.
