People are always asking us how quickly bamboo grows. Below are photos sent from customers in the Orlando area whose objective was to create a perimeter privacy barrier in front of existing fences. See for yourself how quickly a landscape can change less than a year after planting bamboo.
Green Hedge clumping bamboo (3-gallon size) planted 4' apart in May 2008.
11 months later...where did that fence go?
Same property - another location. Same type of bamboo, same size container planted the same distance apart.
11 months later - after only one growing season - the white fence is beginning to disappear behind a screen of green bamboo.
