I would love to use bamboo, as a green screen, at the top of the bank in my back yard. It would allow me to keep my blinds open without those neighbors being able to see right into my house. Considering bamboo is such a vigorous "traveler", how would you prevent it spreading like mad?

Regarding Bamboo, choose "clumping bamboo" to avoid the invasive nature of "running bamboo". Refer to the New Sunset Western Garden book under Bamboo for an extensive discussion on how to grow, maintain, prune, fertilize bamboo. Included is a table describing many types of both clumping and running cultivars.

I liked your advice to bring up your design theme to get help with choosing hardscape, outdoor furniture, and plants. I've been wondering how to make our landscape more cohesive. I think getting a theme nailed down could really help us.

Thank you for sharing some ideas for landscape design. I've been wondering what kind of things we should incorporate in our landscaping design. I never would have considered some of these, but I have so many more ideas now.
