Bamboo fencing is a decorative and environmentally friendly alternative to chain link or wood. Because bamboo grows so quickly, the production of many bamboo products, including bamboo shades, is ecologically friendly. If you are looking to cover a larger window, or using bamboo shades for different purposes, you can find higher quality or larger size shades. Bamboo shades are quite versatile and can be found hanging in open doorways, and being used as room dividers. There is no need to buy special cleaning brushes or cleansing agents to clean bamboo shades. Although using bamboo shades are nothing new, hundreds of styles, and patterns have become available as their popularity has increased.

Such outdoor buildings and concrete sections as sheds, power transformers and pool equipment can be hidden and beautified with bamboo fencing. It is a low cost and possible DIY option that makes a lot of sense for a Thai home.

Palm trees not only look great and compliment the bamboo fencing, but their large leaves provide a natural shade, for when you want to take a break from the hot summer sun.

Though hated by many because of its invasiveness, I've always wanted a stand of bamboo so I could use it for projects.
