What types of bamboo do you offer?

FAQ Category:

We specialize in screening bamboo, timber bamboo, and ground cover bamboo, each suited for different landscaping and architectural needs.

Screening Bamboo

Screening bamboo is an ideal choice for those looking to create natural, dense screens or hedges for privacy and aesthetic appeal. These types of bamboo grow tall and thick, offering an excellent way to obscure unwanted views or define boundaries in a landscape. Screening bamboos are typically fast-growing and can achieve substantial height quickly, making them perfect for homeowners and landscapers who wish to establish privacy or windbreaks in a short amount of time. With their lush foliage and upright growth habit, they provide a vibrant green backdrop to any garden setting.

Timber Bamboo

Timber bamboo refers to larger species of bamboo that are valued for their substantial size and strength. These bamboos are often used in construction, furniture making, and other applications where sturdy, natural materials are preferred. Timber bamboo can grow to impressive diameters and heights, making them a standout feature in any landscape. Beyond their practical applications, these bamboos offer a majestic and exotic look, bringing a touch of the tropics to gardens. Their rapid growth and sustainability also make them a favorite among eco-conscious consumers and builders looking for renewable resources.

Ground Cover Bamboo

Ground cover bamboo consists of shorter, spreading species that are ideal for covering large areas with a low, dense mat of foliage. These bamboos are perfect for controlling erosion, suppressing weeds, and adding a lush, green carpet to the garden floor. Unlike their taller counterparts, ground cover bamboos are more about spreading horizontally, making them excellent choices for filling in gaps, creating green pathways, or as a decorative underplanting in larger bamboo or garden settings. Easy to maintain and hardy, ground cover bamboo provides an effective and attractive landscaping solution for a variety of needs.

Each type of bamboo serves different purposes and can be selected based on the specific needs and goals of your landscaping or gardening project. By offering a range of bamboo types, Almaville Bamboo Company ensures that customers can find the perfect bamboo for privacy, aesthetic, or functional uses within their spaces.

You will need a tailgate or ramps or need to build some elevation on the back of your trailer.

If you don’t have a tarp, we can cover the plants for you- we have successfully had plants make it to Colorado, Maryland, Michigan and Florida covered with carpet backing or “Leno.”

If you expect your order to be greater than 20 plants, please call ahead so we can be sure of availability of your particular species. We prefer to stabilize the newly dug plants for 2 weeks.
