How to finish killing running bamboo
The area I am working on is approximately 10 by 30 feet.
I have dug out all the clumps of the hateful stuff and tilled about a foot deep until the ground is very soft and aerated. Will rake more until the larger root clusters are pretty well found and removed.
I am no environmental puritan but have found the chemical approach is a losing battle. OTOH the only chemical that shows any immediate progress in stopping and killing this stuff is gasoline and to a lesser degree diesel. Not a serious option of course and I only tried it on a little area so chose the digging and tilling option.
What am I needing to do to feel assured I have removed whatever propagates new growth of this stuff?
