If you have been contemplating installing a privacy fence, but aren’t sure that you want to put the money into wooden fencing and a contractor to install it, bamboo fencing may be a better option for you.
It is attractive to the eyes, less expensive, environmentally friendly, and easy to install.
But why is bamboo fencing a good idea?
First, bamboo fences can last twice as long as cedar fences and are able to significantly withstand more environmental extremes such as strong winds because the rounded canes allow the wind to pass through the fence.
As an added feature, bamboo is naturally resistant to rot and invasive insects.
Bamboo fencing also adds a natural, tropical feel to your outdoor spaces for many years without mold when you clean it properly and seal it upon installation.A photo collage of bamboo fencingCivil Engineering Discoveries
Equally, bamboo is a grass and thus grows quickly. It also brings the beauty of nature to any space whether indoors or outdoors.
One of the simplest ways to construct a creative bamboo privacy fence for your yard is to first create a wooden frame and then use pre-made bamboo fencing to fill the frame with bamboo poles.
Additionally, for many people who live in urban environments, their balcony or porch rather than a yard is their personal piece of the great outdoors.
This is especially if you live in a more populated area, you may enjoy having some privacy on your balcony.
Fencing comes in heights of 3 feet, 4 feet, 6 feet, and 8 feet. This size makes it very easy to customize how much you want your space covered.
For apartments or condos with balconies, if you want partial coverage, 3 or 4 feet fencing would be ideal.A photo collage of balconies decorated using bambooBalcony Boss
To achieve proper fencing, tall bamboo poles are spaced closely together, blocking the view of neighbors or anyone passing by on the sidewalk. The fencing is attractive and easy to install too.
Bamboo Fencing is also great for small spaces as it barely takes up any space yet adds a huge impact to any area.
You could use the fencing indoors as well where you use them as beautiful headboards for your bed.
The texture and color of bamboo will give a nice pop of decor to your room. Setting it up is extremely easy. Either hang it on the wall with nails or hooks or just place it behind your bed.
Let the bed hold up the bamboo fencing. Also use bamboo fencing to divide your rooms. Just like outdoor use, bamboo fencing turns into a screen for added privacy.A photo collage of a bedroom designed with bamboo sticks and beds made from bamboo.Home Art Mania

Bamboo farming in Kenya has in recent times gained popularity given the scarcity and high costs of timber.
Unlike other trees that take decades to mature, bamboo farming takes little time to return profits since a bamboo tree is ready for harvesting just four years after planting.

Bamboo farming is not only good for its commercial returns, these trees are also very good for the environment.
They do well in a moderately acidic loamy soil. Seedlings should be planted during the rainy season or ensure that you water then thoroughly.
