The Bamboo Barrier Installation Party
I planted two running bamboos last year (Phyllostachys nigra & Phyllostachys decora). So this year it was time to get the barrier in before it "took over the world" lol.
We needed to dig an 85 foot long trench 28' inches deep which seemed like a long hard task. But I was able to trick all my relatives into coming over to dig by sending out an invite for a "Bamboo Party". I made it appear to be a party including pulled pork sandwiches and all. But I mentioned in the invite that a pick and shovel is required. lol
I had a great turn out and we were able to get the ditch dug in 4 hours with a lunch break. It only took us another 3 hours to install the barrier, fill it in and clean up.
Here are some pictures:
