Why is it important to have a bamboo fence in your yard? I’m sure many of you have seen pictures or heard of bamboo fencing in movies. They can give your backyard a very natural and beautiful look. There is nothing worse than seeing a bamboo fence in the middle of the front yard with all kinds of junks and garbage strewn across it. Now you may be thinking that I don’t have anything against bamboo fencing, but when it comes to the real thing, I always have an issue.
The truth is, bamboo fencing does work, but it can get pretty expensive. Bamboo has grown in popularity, but it is still expensive. My advice to you is to find another way to beautify your yard without spending an arm and a leg on your bamboo fence. The only problem is, I don’t know of any other way. If you are willing to try, I have some ideas.
The first thing you need to do is take a walk around your neighborhood. Go to all the local home depots and see what they have available. Did you know that some home depots actually sell bamboo fence for a discounted price? That is something that you are not going to find at your local Home Depot. Go to a few more home stores, but I recommend going to one of your local home improvement chains because they will have a much better selection.
Once you get back to your home, I want you to take some time and look at some of the bamboo fencing that is for sale. There is no reason to see anything that doesn’t work, right? What you are going to find is that there are a lot of different styles, colors, and sizes of bamboo fence for you to choose from. Some of it might just look weird, but that is okay because it is your house and you can make it whatever style you like.
Now, it is time to go take a look at where you are going to install your bamboo fence. Before you do that, you will want to decide whether you want it to be indoors or outdoors. If you decide that it needs to be outdoors, you will need to determine whether you are going to mount it to a tree or if you are going to stake it down. Staking it down is always the best way to go because it keeps the bamboo dry and keeps the bamboo fence safe. You never know when bad weather is going to come up and your bamboo fence won’t be able to provide you with a solid barrier against intruders.
Now that you have decided on the type of bamboo fence that you are going to install, you will want to determine the height and width that you are going to need. If you are looking for a little privacy, you will want to make sure that you get a little taller than you would like so that you will have enough space to move back into your home. However, if you are just looking for a little more of a breeze and to keep out some of the sunlight, then you will want to go with a bamboo fence that is a little wider.
Now, it is time to get all of the supplies together. Make sure that you get a good ladder so that you can install the bamboo fence on a flat surface. You will also want to get some strong tape so that you can stick your bamboo fence to the ground as well as the side of the building. You can easily roll up the tape and store it or you can tape it down to the support of the bamboo fence so that it does not blow away in high winds.
Now, it is time to climb up on that ladder and get to work. The first thing that you will want to do is install the chain link that is holding your bamboo fence in place. This will allow you to have more control when installing the bamboo fence. Then, you will want to take the ladder up to the top of the bamboo fence. You will want to make sure that you get the anchor that is needed to anchor your bamboo fence to the building so that it will be completely safe and secure.
