If you are looking for a live, fast growing hedge, bamboo could be the perfect choice for you. If grown properly, it can grow very dense and tough, making it great for adding privacy around your home and yard. Bamboo spreads quickly, looks attractive and is an excellent choice for creating natural fences. We’ve embedded a super tutorial video below that tells you what you need to know.
To make this project work, you will have to choose the right variety of bamboo. There are two general categories of bamboo. One type is the “running” variety. This is very fast growing and difficult to control. It provides a quick, tall fence but can be regarded as invasive, as well as requiring work to contain. The other type is the “clumping” variety, which is less fast growing but easier to maintain. This type of bamboo does not spread out underground but stays growing in the same spot, so your hedge does not affect the neighbors or the rest of your yard. It is also important to take into consideration the weather conditions of where you live. Bamboo thrives in warm climates and while it will be successful in “hot and dry”, you can see from its original jungle habitat that hot, humid conditions are those in which it thrives.
Keep an eye on your live bamboo fence to ensure that it is not spreading beyond your property. Regular pruning and cutting is important to save yourself the trouble coming from distressed neighbors. You can keep it as long as you like provided you take proper care of it. Another option is to keep the bamboo in pots. This will keep it from spreading out of control, and can also create a movable barrier – however attempts should be made to secure these from being blown over in high wind conditions.
One of the main concerns here is to keep the bamboo contained within your property by regular maintenance. Bamboo grows rapidly so you will need to be diligent in order to keep it orderly and attractive. If you think that all the trimming, pruning and cutting are too much work then live bamboo fencing may not be the best choice for you. Also, the plant is not easily available in all climate conditions and therefore may have to be specially ordered. But aside from those drawbacks, bamboo fences still provide lots of benefits.
OK, here’s the video:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
