Bamboo 101

Bamboo has become an incredibly popular plant due to the fact that it grows quickly and can create thick, tall evergreen plants that provide screening and privacy for home and business owners.

You may have heard, though, that bamboo can be aggressive and take over your landscape. That happens only when you use “running” bamboo. Palmco never sells “running” bamboo. We provide customers exclusively with noninvasive “clumping” bamboo to ensure that it always stays where you want it! It has short roots and spreads slowly in small clumps. You never have to worry that the bamboo you purchase from us will invade your customers’ yards or get out of control!

Though clumping bamboo is far easier to maintain than running varieties, it is still a good idea to have a specific layout for your installation of the bamboo. You might want to incorporate borders to ensure that the clumps stay where you want them. But, since they grow slowly, it won’t be hard to remove any stragglers that might wander outside the boundaries.

If you are still a little nervous about installing bamboo, especially for screening or privacy, there is an alternative we offer that might be worth your consideration. The Mast Tree is becoming quite popular as a substitute for Italian Cypress. These trees are evergreens that can be four to five feet wide and up to 45 feet tall. While they are not bamboo or palm trees, they are an interesting and viable option if your client gets a little nervous about the negative rap that bamboo has gotten over the years.
