We have bamboo that we want to contain with a barrier and remove the rest which has overrun other areas of our lawn and shrubs. Any suggestions of a landscaper who has experience with bamboo?
I've also come across several companies that say they specialize in bamboo:
Bamboo Bob (www.bamboobob.com)
Precision Bamboo Removal (www.precisionbambooremoval.com)
New Jersey Bamboo Landscaping (www.njbamboo.com)
Has anyone used these companies or have other suggestions?
It's a big job. We had bamboo in Maplewood. It came up through our driveway. It encroached on our neighbor's house foundation. One year, my wife spent a few months digging it up and cutting it back. You definitely want to contain it.
Ed from Little Acre Farm planted our bamboo and barrier: http://www.littleacrefarm.com/ They do removal as well.
Bamboo sends out underground rhizomes, which can go considerable distances. Some species 15-30' in a season. If you kick off the tip of new shoots, when they are 4-8" tall, it won't regrow - but the rhizome remains, and will keep stretching.
From everything I've read, it doesn't seem like bamboo is worth it. I would remove all of it.
