Bamboo Care and Maintenance

There are many things that can be accomplished in the winter to care for and maintain bamboo groves. These include:

1. Isolating barriers to make sure the bamboo rhizomes do not go over the top or through the overlap.

2. Thinning. Thinning allows new growth to emerge from the grove in the spring.

3. Removal. Removing bamboo in the winter has its own challenges, but we do so in order to be able to take care of more clients throughout the year.

4. Fertilizing.

We wrote a new article, called "How To Kill Bamboo" as it seems that many think this is the solution to their bamboo problems. It is not an answer as bamboo cannot be killed using any traditional method, regardless of what you read on the internet or see in a YouTube video. Home Depot even suggests you use a potent chemical in a way the manufacturer (and the USDA) warn against. There is no chemical that is known to man that will kill rhizomes, and again, when you 'attack' the plant, the plant responds with additional rhizome growth, deeper and farther away from the grove and where the poison was applied.

Cutting it down and covering it with plastic does not work, rhizomes again will expend energy traveling out from under the plastic.
