suggestions on running bamboos
I am looking to plant several running bamboos to act as a privacy screen. Our lowest average temp is around zero degrees. Most of the area to be planted is partial sun.
what types of running bamboos should I consider for my yard, and what measures should I take to control it's spread? I read that you need to trench the bamboo two feet, should I use sheet metal to contain it, or would a heavy duty landscape plastic do the trick?
Ideally, I would plant the bamboo to fill a trench 2-3 feet wide by fifty feet long, with a 90 degree turn in the middle, to follow my fence line.
