Bamboo

Hi all, hope your well...

A customer has asked me to remove Bamboo from there garden, what's the best method? Treat it or dig it? It looks like it's been planted but is spreading rapidly, thankyou

    Steve, type "remove bamboo" into the search at the top of the screen, lots of advice there - my advice would be to cost in a new pry bar and heavy duty mattock - the bamboo, together with your efforts will probably break them.!

  • not all bamboos are bad, some of the nicer ones you wish would clump up a bit faster in fact, but the invasive sort ought to be banned lol

  • Cheers folk, I'll see what I can do.
