Bamboo is a great way to get Privacy Screen Living

Privacy Screen Living is important to enjoying our backyards. Privacy is a great thing to have these days.  Bamboo is a great way to get that privacy. And do what’s good for the environment. Instead of cutting down trees to build a privacy fence. Why not grow your privacy fence? In most areas a wooden privacy fence is restricted to only 6 ft tall. With a living fence there is no height restrictions. And bamboo comes in many sizes and can be pruned to keep at a certain height. Plus it looks much better. You don’t have to paint it or stain it. And Bamboo will hold its leaves in the winter months. And still look beautiful. Just be sure to get bamboo that is hardy to your area. Some bamboos will grow fine here. But need to be protected in the winter. And others need no protection at all.

Bamboo Hardiness

In my opinion a bamboo gains it true hardiness once established. And by that I mean many, many canes around it for protection. Bamboo really starts to spread in its 3rd and 4th years. Depending on what you started with. Simple rhizome pruning will control spread. Along with regular mowing. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. Do your part and the bamboo will make you very happy.  Phyllostachys Aureosulcata makes an excellent living privacy screen. It can grow to 35 ft tall in my zone 6. And 2+ inches in diameter. It amazes me every day. There are many other phyllostachys that will make a great privacy screen. Too many to name. But I’ll give you a few. There’s Nuda, Bissettii, Rubromarginata, Aurea, Atrovaginata,  Nigra, Aureosulcata Aureocaulis and Spectabilis.

Eco Living

With plenty of maintenance, water and fertilizer. You too, can enjoy this plant for many years to come. And do your part to wipeout your carbon footprint. I just read the other day that if the whole world planted bamboo. That we could reverse the effects of global warming in just 6 short years. Now that’s incredible! Thank you for reading.
