When you want to create an island oasis in your suburban backyard, you need the right materials, and large bamboo poles, thatch, and reed products are classic choices when it comes to injecting a dose of the tropics to any area. Having those materials on hand ensure that, no matter what project you'll be starting next, the result will have an authentic island-feel. If you're transforming a yard in almost any climate, you'll need to use quality products to ensure your island paradise will withstand the elements and give you years of enjoyment.
As a natural product, bamboo comes in a variety of lengths and diameters, but you can find large bamboo poles that are up to 5 inches in diameter and anywhere from 5 to 10 feet in length. Bamboo in general is a sturdy material with a tensile strength that is higher than steel, making larger poles a terrific choice for constructing awnings and canopies, tiki huts, privacy fences around decks and patios, and so much more. Bamboo is one natural material that doesn't attract pests such as termites and other insects, and you can increase the life of already durable bamboo by treating it periodically with a protective clear coat or stain.
The addition of reed or thatch panels will complete your tropical yard projects, whether they are an island bar, a tiki hut, a decorative divider, or anything else. The bamboo poles are ideal for constructing the framework and the reed and thatch add the perfect complementary finishing touch. These are all materials that work together well, both functionally and aesthetically. The finished result is an island getaway in your own back yard that offers the benefits of a tropical resort without the cost or travel.
