What about bamboo?

In Adventures on April 25, 2009 at 12:54 am

It may not be American-grown, but it certainly is renewable–as anyone who’s ever made the mistake of planting bamboo in the back yard of a previous residence knows all too well. (Actually, it might be American-grown too. I just haven’t verified it yet.)

Bamboo is a super-plant. Because it’s so abundant, fast growing and durable, it’s a popular choice for “greener” flooring and other applications where traditional hardwoods would be more typical.

Things like fences, in fact.

It turns out that there’s a company called Cali Bamboo that manufactures exactly what I’m after–bamboo fencing. It looks nice, too.

Yes, you still need to support it with traditional earth-unfriendly dimensional lumber. But at least you’re not pillaging cedar forests for the pickets.

And it looks nice, too.

I’ve contacted them for a quote. Please pray the stuff’s affordable.
