Bamboo rhizome growth habits
I'm still deciding which method of bamboo control to use.
I've read that if I can keep the area around the grove mowed for 20-30 feet, then this will contain the bamboo. Alternatively, kicking over the new culms as they appear in this area, is supposed to work.
But would the bamboo just continue underground from the kicked-over culm's rhizome, and keep going straight ahead and/or branch out underground, until they reach beyond the 20-30 foot zone? I don't want them to pop up in my neighbor's yard.
