Create your Dream Bamboo Screen

Photo right is or a 30 cm wide garden in Byron Bay we planted over 3 years ago to cover a tall building nextdoor.  The customer wanted the Secret Gardens look see front page of my website.  It was a trial and I was not sure it would work- it has because we planted in really good soil half a metre apart 200 mm size and they have stayed in place and stayed thin but tall.

Planting Advice

How many bamboos will I need?

In residential areas, it is typical to space plants 80cm - 1.5m apart. Adjacent to a colourbond fence, the recommendation is to plant one at each post and one in between, which results in a 1.2m gap between plants.

How do I prune and maintain bamboo plants?

Pruning and maintenance are essential for keeping bamboo healthy and attractive in the garden... but it's not as often or time consuming as you'd think! Typically bamboo only really needs to be pruned once or twice a year. To prune and maintain your bamboo, just cut the culm (pole/shoot) at the height you want. That bamboo culm then grows no taller than the height you pruned. You can also remove older culms, and conduct routine maintenance tasks like fertilising, watering, and pest control for optimal health and appearance. For more tips you can head to our Garden Coach page.

Does bamboo grow out of control?

Our lovely clumping bamboo plants have shallow roots, with NON-invasive rootballs that grow in a neat circular footprint. They actually have fine fibrous grass-like roots that are much safer than most palms and trees! Similar to a ginger plant you eat. For added peace of mind, consider installing a root barrier.
