If you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing privacy fence that is both relatively cheap and extremely durable, rolled bamboo fencing may be the perfect addition for your home or business. The major drawback for privacy fencing in the past has been the cost and exacting requirements of construction. A durable fence made of wood takes a lot of know-how to install properly, not to mention lumber and materials. Setting posts and levelling the cross frames are onerous tasks, and even experts can occasionally make mistakes.
A bamboo fence, on the other hand, is simple enough to set up on a day over the weekend. You will enjoy the durability, which is comparable to more modestly constructed wooden fences. There are other benefits as well, like augmenting the look of the landscape and the fact that no trees are killed and no chemicals are used that can leach into the surrounding soil.
Rolled Bamboo Fencing is Sustainable
One of the top benefits of bamboo fencing is the fact of sustainability. Bamboo is a quick-growing plant, and one plant will survive multiple harvests. With wooden fences, there are two basic options. A cheap wooden fence can be made of softwood from a managed forest, though it is far less durable and must be treated with chemicals. Hardwood fences are more durable, yet far more expensive, and there is a distinct possibility that the hardwood trees , which take on average 30 years to mature, will have been cut from some of the few remaining, old-growth forests.
Most wooden fences are made from chemically treated lumber to enhance durability, and this can be a real problem in some landscapes. More and more people are choosing plants for their yards and gardens that have utility for humans, from fruit trees to herbal borders. The chemicals from treated wood will slowly leech into the soil and pose a risk to both humans and any wildlife that consumes the products of plants in the landscape.
Cost-Effective Landscaping and Security with Rolled Bamboo Fencing
The best features of bamboo fencing are the cost and appearance. The cost of fencing in a particular yard will vary depending upon size of the yard and the desired height of the fence, but the average cost for a 2.5 meter long by 1.8 meter high section of bamboo fencing will be between 60-80 A$. Depending upon your needs, fence sections can be found with heights ranging from 1-2.5 meters and lengths from 1.8-4.9 meters. It is simple to attach these sections of fencing to posts, and there is no levelling required, since the entire section attaches at once.
Bamboo fencing also comes in several styles, from the most common light brown colour to a darker brown and rich mahogany. The choice of colour will allow you to set the fence as a backdrop to the landscape or make it a centrepiece upon which the peeling bark of river birch or the various hues of a flower garden will appear more vibrant.
Choosing the Right Size and Style of Rolled Bamboo Fencing for Your Home or Business
Bamboo fencing can serve well as both privacy and security for the home and business. A gated bamboo screen can protect the business dump-site from being raided by vermin, while providing a visual barrier for customers, that chain or wooden slat fencing can’t.
Whether you are looking for a modest barrier in the garden to keep wildlife from eating the veggies or a towering, privacy fence to surround the yard, it makes sense to choose a fencing that is inexpensive, sustainably harvested, and long lasting. Rolled bamboo fencing has all these attributes, with as much or more visual appeal as a more traditional option.
