I build bamboo planters. The shape and design are simple.
The tapered design allows for ease of maintenance year after year.
Other planter designs make it impossible to remove the bamboo for maintenance (especially the metal ones).
This maintenance is mandatory for bamboo.
If you cannot get the bamboo out of the planter, it will become root bound and eventually die.
These planter's prevent this problem of not being able to root prune the bamboo.
For more information on this maintenance
please refer to Bamboo Maintenance
These are products with long term sustainability in mind.
- all boxes are lined inside with 60 mil HDPE bamboo barrier material
- wood sealed with protective outdoor oil
- interior floor consists of wood supports and mesh, to hold soil
- concrete block feet
- screwed together rather than nailed to keep structural integrity
- the lining, together with the tapered design, prevents wood rot
All the boxes are 2 feet tall by 2 feet wide and the length can vary in foot increments.
The standard planter size is 5 foot in length.
However in some situations a 4 foot long or a 6 foot long can work better.
Most planters are built with Cedar or Kiln dried Douglas Fir that is coated with oil.
Availabilty of reclaimed wood is limited.
