If you’ve 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 good option for you. This attractive fencing is less expensive, environmentally friendly, and easy to install. Here are the answers to some questions…
Is a bamboo fence a good idea?
Bamboo fences can last twice as long as cedar fences and are able to significantly withstand more environmental extremes such as hurricane force winds because the rounded canes allow the wind to pass through the fence.
Is bamboo fence cheaper than wood?
Unlike hardwood privacy fencing, bamboo fencing is quite inexpensive. The fence poles or rolls are affordable, and because they’re easily installed, putting up a bamboo fence can be a do-it-yourself project.
Does bamboo devalue property?
However, it is also a potential problem for those who are wanting to sell their property and you should consider declaring that bamboo plants are in the garden – even though you have no legal obligation to do so. Be aware that making this declaration may lead to your property being devalued.
Do bamboo fences rot?
Bamboo fencing is environmentally friendly and durable in hot, dry climates. As an added feature, bamboo is naturally resistant to rot and invasive insects. Your bamboo fencing adds a natural, tropical feel to your outdoor spaces for many years without mold when you clean it properly and seal it upon installation.
