Bamboo Begone!

This lovely property in Collingswood was being over-run by invasive bamboo. Enter Rooted Landscaping!

All existing bamboo was removed by hand. Next, we dug a two and a half foot trench along the fence and inserted a sheet metal bamboo barrier. The trench was back-filled with soil.

Next digging out a decorative field stone wall.

In front of the wall, a replanting an existing Japanese Maple and skip laurels, and adding diablo nine barks and a variety of native, bee-attracting perennials

Bamboo is beautiful. To get that peaceful feeling, while not allowing it to run ramshod, a little bit of black bamboo was planted in underground pots. Whispering breezes, safe house foundations. Win!
