Re: was NE weather, now bamboo suppliers

There are a couple things that can make control easier: plant it next to a pond - as a grass, most do not spread into wet areas; plant it in a location where you can mow around it - that way, when the culms raise their pointy little heads, they get lopped off by the mower!

It's gone down about 3' and under a railroad tie retaining wall to
come up in the parking area.

While I enjoy my bamboo and it provides me with an unending supply of
bamboo for stakes and poles to support my deer netting, I wouldn't
trust it any farther than I could throw an elephant with one hand
tied behind my back.  Once you let a running bamboo loose, it will go
where it wants to and you will be working in control mode forever.

A buried 1/2" thick steel plate about 5' high with all joints welded
might...possibly might....control it, but I wouldn't trust anything
