Screening Bamboo

Screening bamboo can be used in many different ways. If you need a privacy fence between you and your neighbors, you can plant a live fence out of bamboo and control where it grows with barriers. If you live near a highway, screening bamboo can be used as a noise barrier to soften the harsh noises of traffic. These vary in size and can be trimmed to the height you want. Be careful to not plant these under power lines and any other overhead obstructions because they can cause damage.
