That Mark is so darn handy. Let me know when he's available for hire!

Barbara H.

Great job, Mark. Love it.

Hi Linda and Mark -- The fence is lovely! I am guessing that the bamboo you found were remnants of a sukkah -- a temporary hut with the roof usually covered with vegetation that observant Jews will dine in during the autumn holiday - Sukkot. I am doing myself (and anyone else who reads this) a disservice by not researching this more. I always thought of Sukkot as an agricultural / harvest festival -- but I am most certain that this is incorrect. Susan


It's marvelous...I just passed a pile of bamboo and will head back to get more! I am inspired by his fence.

I have a neighbor that occasionally puts out bamboo to be hauled away. Mark has given me a great idea. This is perfect for your style of garden. I hope it is near your tea house. Beautifully done Mark.


A lovely addition to the garden. I was going to mention that the bamboo was probably left from a Sukkah, but Susan beat me to it. It did begin as an agricultural celebration.

Love Mark's fence. Also amazed at all the available bamboo that everyone is finding at the curb.

Cindy at enclos*ure

Really impressive. I had bamboo growing in a past garden, and I don't miss it, since it's a thug. But I do miss always having the poles for projects.

Cindy — We only grow Fargesia which is a clumper and so far has been well behaved. It is reaching its mature size and is getting a bit big for the space where I planted it. Our bamboo doesnt make canes that big; more like pencil thickness.
