I build planters, big planters that I have developed specifically for growing bamboo in. The shape and design are simple.
The rectangular dimensions lend themself to decks, patio's, driveway's and pretty much anywhere a privacy hedge is needed.
The tapered design allows for ease of maintenance year after year.
It allows for the release of a potentially congested root mass of bamboo out of the planter.
Other planter designs make it near 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 eventually and wither away without maintenance.
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 coated with a low-voc protective outdoor oil
- interior floor consists of wood, steel mesh, landscape cloth
- Feet consist of gray concrete brick's for feet
- screwed together, rather than nailed to keep it's structural integrity over long period's of time
- The tapered design along with the interior lining, prevents any wood rot from occurring.
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.
The 4 foot is especially good for shipping, since it can fit on a palette.
The 6 foot is nice to fill big spaces, without having to get two planters.
The real dimensions of the standard 2x2x5 is 24"wide x22"tall x60"long
with 2" thick brick feet, equally 24" total height, when installed.
Most planters are built with Cedar.
An economical alternative is reclaimed Douglas Fir.
Availabilty of reclaimed wood is limited.
