In our neighbors yard, there are bamboo trees growing. Now they have started showing up in our yard. How do we get rid of them so they do not come back?
Bamboo will be tough to control. They spread underground, popping up wherever they can. Repeat applications of registered herbicides will help; digging and removing them also helps. I'm told that covering the area with black plastic will starve them of sunlight, slowing the spread. When you are dealing with something like this, the best advice we can give is to rely on a number of methods, not just one. Please contact Bartlett if we can help with the herbicide application.
