Designing with Golden Bamboo

/, Transformations/Designing with Golden Bamboo

This newly built pool was surrounded by a scruffy and leggy Privet hedge which we took out. Golden bamboo to the rescue here. The powerful golden canes contrast with the blue of the pool and we planted some dark green ivy behind to eventually cover the fence. Designing with bamboo needs to be done carefully. I have seen it in the middle of an English Cottage Garden and the whole garden is then often dominated by the bamboo’s exotic tone. However in a contemporary garden it can be the perfect choice giving screening and constant delicate movement.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
