Treatment and durability

Working with Bamboo


  • The diameter of each bamboo pole varies. Our stated average diameters are always measured at the base (or the thickest part of the bamboo pole).
  • A natural property of bamboo poles is that they are thicker at the base than at the top. The taper percentage for Java black bamboo poles is about 10-15% over a length of 3 meters.
  • Bamboo is a natural product, therefore bamboo poles are never 100% straight.
  • Each black bamboo pole is unique, therefore color differences are to be expected.
  • Vertical cracks can/will occur in bamboo poles, especially when used outdoors. Just like wood, bamboo expands or shrinks when temperature or humidity conditions change. Cracks, however, have no effect on the structural integrity of bamboo.
  • Bamboo used in outdoor conditions will weather over time. We advice to treat black bamboo poles with Bamboo Booster or Bamboo Protector to preserve its natural dark color.

Lampjes opgehangen

Inspiratie opgedaan via Pinterest en bij uitgekomen om de inspiratie om te zetten naar de praktijk. De bamboe staat vast in cement, met lavendel erboven op voor een mooi afgewerkt en natuurlijk geheel. De lampjes ertussen zorgen voor de juiste sfeer. Kortom, we zijn erg blij met het resultaat.

Katten rolsysteem

Onze twee katten moeten in de tuin blijven. Bamboe palen op een L-stukje aan beide zijden op staalkabel zorgen voor draaiende bamboe palen als de katten de schutting over willen klimmen. Dit hebben we gemonteerd op alle schutting delen. Effectief en ziet er natuurlijk uit ipv kunstof oplossingen.
