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.

You can use some of the ideas briefly discussed here and you can view our bamboo installation gallery for various uses and installation ideas for all of our superb bamboo products and tropical décor. I have seen bamboo in lumber stores, gardening centers and even home stores like Walmart, but the best price I found for bamboo was in the most unlikely place, a dollar store! Thank you for the refreshingly easy approach to an endearing and enduring bamboo trellis.

It is often the case that the effect of a Thai home can be undermined by fencing in the grounds that is made of brick or plastic. Bamboo can be cut into half or quarter strips and stacked to make heavy duty fencing. Bamboo can also be cut into thin strips and woven together to make the filling part of the fence. 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.

I have seen some amazing ideas on Pinterest - just wonderful, some people even make drawers to put into the slots and then stack them one upon the other. Brie, these ideas are ridiculously easy...there are ideas for the interior of the home, too, in case you want to give it a try some day. Who would have thought there were so many different ideas for creating useful items from something most people would toss to the side. I enjoyed reading this because you have some really good ideas past the usual outdoor furniture. The ones I've seen lately are a very cheap grade of pine, good mainly for chicken coops.

Malaysia has about 70 species of bamboo: 50 in Peninsular Malaysia, 30 in Sabah and 20 in Sarawak (Wong 1989). This is proposal project for a Bamboo Garden in Malaysia, made specially for the Ministry of Agriculture (Kementerian Pertanian dan Asas Tani Malaysia) for consideration and approval to make a new kind of agro-tourism in the state of Negeri Selangor and Negeri Sembilan respectively.
