Out of Control Running Bamboo
We purchased a home in northern GA about 3 years ago. The former owners had planted an area of bamboo in the yard, which we really liked when we first moved into the home. However, we have since learned, by experience, what can happen with running bamboo that is not contained with a border of some kind. The runners have been showing up everywhere, with damage to my driveway, garage, and just generally taking over the yard. It has also started moving into my neighbors yard. I am afraid our underground pool will be next in its sights. From searching various sites on the web, it seems the only sure way to gain control is to dig up all the plants and runners. I was curious if anybody has experience, recommendations, or references to other information they would be willing to share, so that I might have a better chance to win the battle with my bamboo.
