The Q&A Archives: Uses Of Bamboo

Question: I have a very large stand of bamboo that was planted before I purchased my house. It is taking over my deck. I read your answers to containing it and they were very helpful. Do you have any suggestions for some uses for the canes I cut down? Is it possible to use them in building fences or furniture?

Answer: Bamboo is very rigid and sturdy so it's excellent for building outdoor structures and furniture. I've seen it turned into trellises, furniture and fences, so only your imagination will limit the projects!
