A garden is a place where a lot of people go for a little bit of rest and relaxation. In this picture our son Toby (how little he was in 2004!) is standing next to a 10-year-old stand of Bambusa multiplex silverstripe (Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo). Homegrown poles are not as smooth as either the imported or domestically grown designer-quality canes nor are they as straight or even colored. The imported poles are very traditional looking with smooth tan surfaces occasionally patterned with a natural patina. The imported poles tend to be very regular and straight although they occasionally bow outward and might have slight hairline surface cracks.

After removing the pig from the bamboo pole, it is placed on a large wooden letchon baboy platter and generally a very large sized knife is placed in the back. Take your bamboo or doweling and about 6 inches from the end wrap one big rubber band or several smaller ones so that you have a big lump of rubber band in one spot. He quickly put up the bamboo walls and tied them together with strings made from straw.

The timber bamboo is also quite a delicacy, offering a very nutrituous and delicious addition to any meal. Moso can grow upwards of 80 feet tall, three to seven inches in diameter and has a beautiful shade of green to it. Moso is the most common type of bamboo growing in the forests of China today.

Omachron has developed a series of environmentally safe treatments to preserve bamboo for use in construction. Harvesting bamboo for wood requires care to select mature stems that are several years old, as first-year stems, although full sized, are not fully developed and are not as strong as more mature stems. Bamboo can also be carved for decorative artwork, and can be made into flooring. Bamboo flooring is made by steaming pieces flattening them, gluing them together, and then sanding and finishing them. The only caution about bamboo is that it is easily infested by wood-boring insects unless treated with wood preservatives or kept very dry.
