If you don’t like boring fences but also don’t feel like staring at your neighbours all day long, this wild Phyllostachys is the perfect green solution for you. The plant, more commonly known as bamboo, creates a lovely and calming natural barrier, thanks to its exuberant and exotic looks. Bamboo can grow very quickly, so you’ll have a real backyard jungle in no time.
Bamboo likes its soil to be moist, so make sure you give the plant enough water, especially in the summer. Bamboo is known to have unruly roots, but those won’t be a problem when planted in a pot.
Place your bamboo in a spot with partial shade and little to no strong winds. Since bamboo is a strong plant, a spot in the sunshine is fine as well.
