To stop bamboo spreading uncontrollably, plant bamboo
pieces for your screen or hedge in a trench lined on
either side with sheet metal or hardboard. The barrier
need not go deeper than about 45cm as bamboos are shallow
rooted but may spread naturally by underground stems
To eradicate bamboo that has got out of hand, cut the
canes down to ground level, and spray them with a strong
solution of glyphosate herbicide, such as Zero. Any
suckers which emerge later should be similarly treated,
but be careful not to let the spray drift onto other
To minimise problems with bamboo, choose varieties
of bamboo that are clumping rather than spreading.
