  • Bamboo Poles - Stronger Than You Think

    Bamboo has long been proven to be a reliable building material. It’s been used as an alternative to wood for thousands of years and it has the durability to last many, many years and withstand the elements - but just how strong is bamboo?

    How Strong is Bamboo?

    Bamboo can easily be underestimated because of the fact that at first impression it is not as impressive in size as a tree and wouldn’t seem to be as strong as steel. Additionally, you probably wouldn’t believe that bamboo could stack up against concrete or would be comparable to a material like the futuristic and strong carbon fiber. However, bamboo has some impressive qualities that allow it to keep up with and even exceed the traits of these popular building materials.

    Bamboo is a very light building material, yet it is three times stronger than timber. When compared with steel, bamboo has a greater tensile strength, meaning it can withstand more tension or stretching pressure before breaking. When facing off against one of the hardest materials in the world, concrete, bamboo withstands compression better.

    If all of that wasn’t enough, bamboo accomplishes all of this while being far more flexible and malleable than any of the other materials we just mentioned and maintains the same strength as carbon fiber, but at a fraction of the cost! Bamboo is an amazing resource that offers incredible strength and durability benefits while being one of the most renewable building materials on the planet. Bamboo grows over eight times faster than trees and is most certainly easier to harvest than it is to creating steel or concrete.

    The Amazing Benefits of Bamboo

    Bamboo has proven itself to be a very strong and reliable building material throughout history, and the science supports this claim. Whenever bamboo faces off against other staples in the building material industry, bamboo consistently competes with and outperforms their strength and flexibility traits.

    When thinking about the projects around your own home, there is simply no other material on earth that can offer the immense strength and durability of bamboo at the same price. Furthermore, no resource that can boast the same reliability is nearly as renewable and eco-friendly as bamboo. Bamboo is one of Earth’s greatest resources and is a wonderful alternative to many of the building materials that most of us would think couldn’t be replaced!

    Take Advantage of the Strength of Bamboo

    For your next DIY project, take advantage of the amazing benefits of bamboo and experience the cost-effective strength, durability, and eco-friendliness that you won’t find in any other material.

  • How To Install a Bamboo Border

    Bamboo is very versatile and can be used for both indoor and outdoor purposes. If you need to add an extra something to your yard, garden, or bottom of your wall in replace of a baseboard, bamboo functions as a great alternative.

    Bamboo is one of the earth's most renewable resources. When harvested properly, bamboo does little or no environmental damage.

    A bamboo border fence is the logical choice for separating the grassy area of a yard from the tilled soil of a flower or vegetable garden, but you don't have to be limited to a run-of-the-mill square or rectangular gardening plot. Instead of fending off a corner of your yard, why not create a few different circular sections throughout the area? Because border fencing is assembled using wire made from galvanized steel, it is flexible and can encircle garden spots of practically any shape. Plant red and pink flora in a heart-shaped plot, and put lush, green foliage inside a four-leafed clover, both edged with an attractive bamboo border. Make diamonds, stars, or abstract shapes--whatever you desire to liven up an otherwise common yard.

    It is easy to find pre-assembled bamboo border sections.

    An example of a ready-made panel thanks to www.foreverbamboo.com:

    1” diameter bamboo poles that have been capped and connected with heavy gauge stainless steel wire. Each panel preassembled in 1’ tall by 8’ long sections and staggered. There are uneven or staggered options or even (the height is the same all the way across) styles. Continue reading
