|The bamboo gazebo at Beautiful Bamboo|
After greeting customers who come to Beautiful Bamboo nursery, the first thing we do is head to our outdoor office - a beautiful bamboo gazebo made out of the bamboo poles sold here at the nursery. While sitting beneath the gazebo's thatched roof listening to the music of bamboo wind chimes, we take a few minutes to find out about each customer's individual landscape needs.
Are the customers seeking privacy from obtrusive neighbors or trying to block unsightly objects or buildings? Are they are in the market for ornamental plantings or looking to create a hedge? If they are seeking a living fence, how long an area are they trying to cover and how wide a space can the bamboo fill? Are there any overhead wires we need to know about? Is irrigation in place? The answers to these and other questions help us determine which of the many different varieties of bamboo will work best in their particular situation.
In many ways my son, husband and I are not just bamboo growers but matchmakers trying to put together the perfect union of plant and people. Marriage is for the long term and so are bamboos. It is essential, right from the start, to select the correct bamboos. That's why we start each visit with a free consultation in our lovely outdoor office.
