Advice and design

When selling bamboo, we always give advice to the individual, the Public Gardens Department or the company planning a bamboo garden. It turns out there are still many misconceptions and ignorance about bamboo, even with well-known gardeners and garden designers. Frequently ill-suited or not hardy species are advised and not everyone is familiar with the properties of running bamboo.Therefore a good planting advice is a major step towards a successful project and we are glad to be of assistance to you.
You can always contact us about the conditions for planting advice or a garden design.
The following projects have been implemented in association with Bamboo nursery Kimmei.
