We offer bamboo garden installation in a variety species that are adaptable to Pacific Northwest. We provide on-site consultations tailored to your individual needs and desires. We have an advanced bamboo planting technique that makes it became very low maintenance and it can be easily maintained by homeowners without hiring gardeners. However, we also provide bamboo maintenance service and you can rely on us. About Bamboo: Bamboo comes in many varieties, from dwarf plants to stately plants as range from 2 to 50  feet in height (based on when they reach maturity), and the largest specie can grow up to 6" in diameter. Bamboo plants can be used as an excellent backdrop for garden. Bamboo can be planted in a container garden as long as the bamboo maintains their proper moisture and sunlight conditions. There are two main types of bamboo: Clumper and Runner bamboo. Clumper bamboo has a very compact root structure, is genetically incapable of expanding more than few inches a year, and will generally form discrete circular clumps. The clumps slowly enlarge as new culms emerge every year, and may ultimately require anywhere from a 3 to 10 feet area (or more, especially for taller types) in order to reach their mature height, depending on species. The  dense root system can exert strong pressure on structures in contact with it, and thus clumpers should be planted at some distance from fences, sidewalks, retaining walls, etc. Clumpers make excellent specimen plants and will also form very dense screens, but more slowly than runners. Except for the Fargesias, clumpers tend to be less cold tolerant than runners. Runner bamboo spreads variously, sending out underground runners (rhizomes) which sometimes range far from the parent plant. Runners fill in the spaces between plantings faster, making them ideal for fast screens, hedges, and the popular open grove look. Bamboo runners may be easily contained, since the rhizomes grow sideways at a depth of only about 2-18 inches. Most are also very cold-hardy and planting can be done at any time of the year. Bamboo Sizes: There are four categories of bamboo sizes. The first category is Timber Bamboos, sometimes called giant bamboo. They grow to gigantic proportions. This group ranges from 25 to over 100 feet high. These are the grove forming bamboo that need free range and big space to attain grand heights and thick hard culms. The second category is Mid-size Bamboos. This group ranges from 8 to over 25 feet high. The mid-sise bamboos are excellent for screening, growing hedges and suitable for small spaces, near foundations and large container plantings. The third category is Shrub Bamboos. This group ranges from 3 to over 8 feet. Many will grow with a mounding mass of leaves and very little culm showing. Use for low hedges, boundaries, fillers, foundation, container or pot plantings and for taller houseplants. There are several different leaf colors, variegated leaf and sizes available. The fourth category is Dwarf Bamboos. This group ranges from 1 to over 3 feet high. Use them as ground cover to create patterns and textures of the gardens or in planters.
