Bamboo Maintenance

Bamboo Maintenance
  1. The total width for sustainable management of a spreading bamboo screen is 5 feet.
  2. The minimum width of the bamboo screen is 3 feet.
  3. Sand traps make removal of rhizomes easy. Dig traps 1 foot wide x 1 foot deep.
  4. Rhizomes spread through mulch and top soil, never deep, especially in clay.
  5. Remove rhizomes three times through the growing season.
  6. Mulch 4 inches over the soil. Fertilize annually (turf fertilizer).
  7. Use only HDPE barrier to deflect rhizomes. Never leave rhizomes against the barrier, as it will break.
