Overview

Beautiful, sustainable bamboo is one of the most popular materials around for gardens and home decor. This highly regarded introduction to the material is now back in print, revised and updated. It still offers rich history, fascinating background, and great projects, but with more than 20 new images‹making this the most attractive source on the ³it² plant of the green movement.

The book covers all the tools and techniques you need for harvesting, storing, and making things with bamboo. Thirty how-to projects include bamboo fences, trellises, chopsticks, teacups, and even an outdoor shower.

The updated edition describes bamboo's importance in local and global eco-systems and illustrates how to contain bamboo in the landscape. Lush photography makes the book a visual treat, and abundant illustrations add instructive detail.

“[Bamboo] is increasingly being used for garden structures…and the projects in this book reflect that trend…Few books are available on this topic, so this should be welcome in all garden and crafts collections.”—Library Journal

“The book’s mood is at one with nature: a loose flowing text around color photographs, black-and-white illustrations, step-by-step how-tos, and boxed commentaries.”—Booklist.
