Getting Rid of Bamboo Under House
I have a bed of running bamboo with large beautiful culms in my front yard that has escaped into a small flower bed next to the foundation of my house. The growth is leaves growing directly from the rhizome, rather than culms.This will be the third year since I discovered the escape. A yard worker will cut out the rhizomes and install a barrier before the growing season starts this year, but I'm concerned that there may be rhizomes under my house. Can bamboo live in such shaded condition? This bamboo ran under a concrete walkway to get to the bed it is now in, but hasn't spread to any other parts of my yard (yet). I'd appreciate any suggestions or knowledge.
