Time.com had a little blurb that briefly mentioned using live bamboo as a fence. Bamboo, apparently, is good at sucking up CO2. Hubby has also always loved bamboo, so I am considering it over a regular fence or over the much-loved Leland Cypress which is often used as a green fence.
And, I need a fence. My neighbors on one side are unsightly, and the taller the fence the happier my husband and I will be (we've joked about needing a 15 ft Wall of China). I'm not crazy over the cypress because I have 2 dogs, one that loves to go exploring, and the dense habit of bamboo would keep her contained, though I know it would take a while for it to be that thick.
Unfortunately, even though I grew up with some bamboo, it was in FL, not GA, and I do know it has a terrible spreading habit. How would you find it best to contain this living fence? Concrete pots settled in the ground? This site: https://www.bamboonursery.com/maintenance.htm mentions that bamboo has roots up to 3 feet in depth. I wonder if the "container" would need to be that deep, or if only one foot depth of "container" would prevent it from spreading.
EDIT: I found some more info: https://www.bamboos.com/FAQ.html
Any bamboo experts out there?
