  • 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.

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.

Bamboo can provide plenty of privacy for your backyard area at a fraction of the cost of a traditional wood fence.

    Why Bamboo for Your Privacy Fence?

    Bamboo can easily alter the look of your backyard for the better.

    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.
