Bamboo is an elegant evergreen plant. Due to its fast-growing nature, it’s considered one of the best plants for screening or hedging. Whether you want to create a natural border or define zones within your garden, we sell a variety of bamboo screening plants that can be delivered across the UK.
With their distinctive bright green or yellow canes, if arranged correctly, they can create a tranquil, shady spot for your garden or outdoor spaces.
Bamboo Plants For Screening & Privacy
There are two main varieties of bamboo: clumping and running. Clumping bamboo is non-invasive so is often preferred for screening. It clumps and tends to stay in a defined area. Growth is also more gradual and easily controlled.
Soil, climate and available space will all play a key part in your choice of bamboo plant. They don’t require much maintenance, but some varieties are hardier than others.
