  • Bamboo Garden Border Edging - Outdoor Enhancements

    Nothing gives a yard and garden area a clean, finished look like bamboo garden border edging. The border gives a clear, defined separation between different features such as lawns, planting beds, walkways, water features, and more. While many people may think bamboo can only be used if the goal is a tropical look, bamboo is actually very versatile, especially if you choose borders in unique colors such as black bamboo rather than the traditional light honey color of natural bamboo. Though bamboo is a durable material that can hold its own against the elements, your garden edging will last longer, regardless of the color, if you treat it with a varnish or sealant before installing it.

  • Bamboo Fencing Rolls - Backyard Enhancements

    Are you thinking about putting up a fence in your backyard, or maybe replacing the old fence that currently exists? Maybe you’re thinking about transforming the look of your backyard into something new and fresh. Bamboo fencing can help you achieve any of those objectives and completely revamp your backyard into a beautiful tropical getaway!

    Revamp Your Yard With Bamboo Fencing

    Ask any real estate agent, and they will tell you that curb appeal contributes quite a bit to the value of your home, and it makes sense - who would want to pay top dollar for a home that is just like everyone else’s? Bamboo fencing can help contribute to the unique look of your home to help boost curb appeal, and ultimately the value of your home. With bamboo fencing, you can create a stunning tropical theme in your backyard that will foster a fun and welcoming atmosphere for your family and your guests, while at the same time creating some privacy around your patio or deck area - and more reason for someone to buy your house when it comes time to sell!

    Installing a Bamboo Fence

    With all the benefits that bamboo fencing can offer, you might be thinking to yourself, “I’ll probably have to have a professional install it!” The fencing is so easy to put up, it only takes 3 steps! The first step is to put up the fence’s frame, usually made of wood, around the perimeter of your yard. This is where the cost savings come into play, as a fence made entirely of regular wood can get very expensive. Using a bamboo fence requires far less wood and is just as durable. Bamboo fencing comes in rolls, which means all you have to do to install it after you purchase the necessary roll length is affix it to the wood frame you set up in step one. Once it’s securely affixed to the frame, the last step is to enjoy your new backyard - it’s that easy!

    Get Started With Your New Backyard

    Adding a bamboo fence to your yard can completely change the look and feel of your backyard and transform it into a tropical paradise where you, your family, and your friends can relax and enjoy each other's company. Bamboo fencing can help create a beautiful and welcoming space that everyone will certainly enjoy at a cost far below that of a traditional wood fence!

  • Trader Sam’s Tiki Bar – Transform Your Home with Tropical Wall Art

    In 1933, the Tiki movement began in California with Don the Beachcomber and a small bar located in Hollywood. Within a couple of months the bar picked up in popularity attracting tourists and even celebrities such as Walt Disney. Don’s goal was closely connected to the concept of escapism. Tropical themed drinks and décor such as bamboo, thatch, and tiki masks helped create an authentic island feel. Thanks to Don the Beachcomber, tropical wall art became extremely popular throughout the United States. The tiki trend even inspired the famous Enchanted Tiki Room attraction located at both Disneyland and Disney World theme parks.

    Trader Sam’s Tiki Bar is filled with tropical décor pieces that capture the spirit of the tiki movement during the 70’s and 80’s.

  • Bamboo Fence

    A bamboo fence is a classic element for a tropical-themed yard. Bamboo certainly evokes an island-feel better than chain link or vinyl. As a renewable and extremely durable material, bamboo can hold its own, going head to head with steel, so it is also a smart choice for building a fence, even if adding a touch of the tropics isn't on your priority list. However, you can use the versatile material around the house in unique ways that will dress up your outdoor decor and set your yard apart from the neighborhood.

    A Variety of Ways to Construct a Bamboo Fence

    Before moving beyond the perimeter, though, consider the variety of ways you can construct a bamboo fence. The simplest way is to install fencing material over an existing fence. That is an easy enough solution to a boring and drab wooden, vinyl or chain link enclosure. If the fence you want to makeover is chain link, you might also consider weaving bamboo slats through it. That technique may be a little more time-consuming but, as sturdy as it is, bamboo is also surprisingly flexible, so weaving an entire fence line using bamboo slats may not actually take as much time as you think. Alternatively, you can use the slats to build a fence from the ground up to provide privacy where there previously was none.

  • Thinking of Getting Yourself a Bamboo Privacy Fence?

    Thinking About a Privacy Fence?

    Many homeowners enjoy having some privacy in their backyard. Fences and privacy screens provide coverage for you, your family, and your guests so that you all are not on display while trying to enjoy a nice evening on the patio. Most people would turn to a wood fence or privacy screen, but have you ever considered bamboo as a privacy fence material? Bamboo can provide plenty of privacy for your backyard area at a fraction of the cost of a traditional wood fence.

    Bamboo Privacy Fence

    Why Bamboo for Your Privacy Fence?

    Bamboo can easily alter the look of your backyard for the better. From a curb appeal perspective, why not install a fence that gives your home a unique look and allows it to stand out from the others. Additionally, bamboo can be used to create a fun atmosphere for your patio or deck that will be sure to relax you and your guests in a way that other materials can’t.

    Bamboo fences are a fraction of the cost of a wood fence. This is because bamboo is far more renewable than wood and is much easier to grow. As soon as you install a bamboo fence, it gives your backyard a stylish and modern look that standard wood cannot provide. Not only can a bamboo fence save you money, but it will also save you time as it is moderately easy to install.

    If you love to host friends at your home and hanging out in your backyard, then a bamboo fence is the perfect solution. Create a tropical theme that your friends can relax in - they will feel like they are on vacation when they come to your house! Creating an atmosphere like that fosters wonderful conversation and an easy ambiance that is bound to be the cornerstone of a fun evening with friends and family.

    One concern many of our customers have before purchasing bamboo is the amount of privacy it actually provides. A common question is, “Doesn’t a bamboo fence have gaps?” This is a fair question, and the answer is yes, a bamboo fence does contain small gaps. This is true of most privacy fence materials used in the outdoors - even wood fences can be seen through to some degree. However, the gaps in a bamboo fence are certainly small enough to be very hard to see through, and will most assuredly provide your backyard with the privacy you desire, while offering an aesthetically pleasing look that is impossible to get by using other materials.

    Get Started with a Bamboo Fence for Your Backyard Area

    If you’re looking to create a private area in your backyard that creates a great atmosphere for your guests and is also cost-effective, bamboo fencing is the material you need. It provides an eco-friendly, durable, and private screen for your backyard that is a fraction of the cost of the materials that you would otherwise use. Forever Bamboo carries the high-quality bamboo fencing material you need to create this incredible addition to your home.
