Have you ever had pesky neighbours or just wanted privacy, or better yet to create a unique tropical oasis.
Well after Noosa Council decided it was ok for a set of new neighbours to demolish 40 plus mature trees, without any consultation & no approval and place a driveway right next to the boundary line, these home owners had to act and act fast.
What can create lush screening from top to bottom and grow fast enough to hide anything or anyone you may not wish to see , plus offer ambiance with low maintenance ?
Research led to Malaysian dwarf bamboo & no it is not a dwarf but a fast growing bamboo with leaves from top to bottom, it comes with solid green leaves or variegated leaves & can easily grow 3 meters tall.
If you are looking for an array of beautiful and unique bamboos at reasonable prices, along with someone that loves to share their knowledge, then you cant go past Bamboo Park, located at Valdora on the Sunshine Coast.
When visiting we spoke to the owner who was only to happy to share her in depth knowledge about planting & raising bamboos and show us how they actually are used for various screening and privacy affects, truly amazing.
They have bamboos, tropical plants, fruit trees, palms, & so much more.
The gorgeous Blue Bamboo & Buddhas Belly are a particular stand out, if you are looking for a conversation piece to insert into your landscaping.
The grey blue stem of the Blue Bamboo is ideal for a creating refreshing visual scene with their silvery blue stems, that can stand to a magnificent height, whilst the little pot bellied stem of the Buddha Belly bamboo is a very fast growing plant that can reach several meters.
Bamboo Park not only offers a fantastic selection of bamboos but a cafe with delicious sorbets and they also raise free range pigs.
If you are looking for something different then make sure you try their selection of pork sausages & other cuts of meat, that would create a commotion at the best of restaurants.
