Bamboo fencing....one of the most up and coming, durable, and green fencing materials available to homeowners today!

Bamboo fencing is one of the most up and coming, durable, and green fencing materials available to homeowners today. It comes in slats, rolls, and can be grown naturally, making it one of the most attractive, and environmentally friendly, fencing materials on the market.

While bamboo fencing is beautiful in and of itself, many homeowners also choose to dress it up some to make it look more permanent, and to help boost its structural integrity. Building a cedar frame, including posts, crossbars, and top rails, is an excellent way to support, and solidify your bamboo fencing, making it a more permanent fence solution. Of course, while wood frames provide a solid base for installation, it's not necessary. One of the great benefits of bamboo fencing is that can be installed anywhere it has support. This makes a favorite of homeowners with ugly chain link, since a bamboo fence up to 8' high can be installed on, and over, a chain link fence half the height.
