I am planting a privacy hedge using Bamboo Gracilis....
supposedly and excellent type for a screen

I expect to have some left over...
and am asking if anybody might be interested - Cabrera area - you'd need to truck them
I can help there

There are suitable for pots, narrow strips - virtually mtce free once established

THese are quite tall, my bamboo..... 15-20ft
They won't get taller but will thicken out

I'm just probing any interest....I if I don't use them all...I have 50 plants

Price to be determined....

Does your gardening staff have a lot of free time on their hands?
The stuff grows like topsy.
Ever see video of the incredible scaffolding made out of bamboo in the orient.?
Amazing stuff

Study up on this type - Gracilis.... not as invasive as others... posted above
a good choice for hedges

A friend of mine is a garden architect - sort of famous, it turns out
He suggested it

So , if it starts, we run the mower over it.... easy , peasy

Nice to know about Gracilis bamboo. I have witnessed horror stories with invasive bamboo.

Great choice.

We have a "hedge" of clumping palms, not sure the variety but sort of bamboo-ish, that make one helluva barrier...along with seeds and falling fronds. I'd prefer bamboo.

You get it near you.... between Altagracia and Bonao

SuperPlant... a wholesale vivero.... BIG, my driver said

The landscape man did/does a lot of Caso de Campo stuff....
Iglesisas, de la Renta....

He worked at the nearby Aman... is how I met him
Nice, nice guy

When I ordered at SuperPlant.... they asked what type of bamboo I wanted
Thankfully, I knew... Tipped of by my pal...

Because lots of times it can be a nightmare

Bill: Further,- I know they need to be paid for and I will do that because I owe this man big time for some landscaping at my place.

I'll keep you in mind...

We start working tomorrow... trenches etc
dirt delivery...knocking down palm trees for a small retaining edge

I'll see how many I use

Keep in touch

Which side of the highway is it? I have never seen the name and I live in Maimon Bonao. I am about to do a decent size landscaping job and want to contract it out. Thanks

It is so simple to post pics.

Upload to a hosting site from your phone/computer, click on the insert image button in reply to thread on DR1 and paste in URL from your host site.

TinyPic (dv8's favourite hosting site) no longer exists. Try www.imgbb.com instead. It really is simple.
