Versatile Bamboo Fencing

One great thing about bamboo fencing is that it can be easily attached to pre-existing fencing! Bamboo fencing can be attached to existing chain fence, existing wooden fence, and even block/brick walls. Bamboo fencing is a great way to freshen up old fencing and add a new look to your backyard or any perimeter. New fencing can easily spruce up your home or business and covers unsightly holes or tears in the old fencing. Holes or any spaces in fencing can compromise privacy so adding bamboo fencing will help with that.

Bamboo fencing is durable and will add a clean look to your space. Bamboo fencing comes in distinct colors of natural, black, mahogany, retro-blend, and natural burnt. Our most popular styles are the natural, black and mahogany for its versatile looks. The look of bamboo can range from beachy and tropical to chic and contemporary.
