Bamboo ground covers

Bamboo ground cover in Australia #aboutthegardenmagazine.indd

Bamboo Ground Covers are a spreading variety of bamboo, very similar to lawns and can be contained with a simple root barrier if desired. They have shallow, fibrous root systems that are great for soil stability and to prevent erosion; as well as weed prevention and minimising mowing! They are perfect for filling banks, borders, rock walls, raised garden beds, pots and troughs. They are the ideal plant for filling roundabouts and other public areas where a short, tough, drought tolerant and easy to grow plant is needed. Heavy pruning in winter is recommended to promote lush, fresh growth in spring.
