Creating Bamboo Forest in Landscape!

by  Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

Before & After Harvesting

Along the fence running the length of the back of the property  bamboo has been planted.  This fence has a busy sidewalk and roadway behind it and the bamboo provides privacy and protection now that it has grown.  This summer the bamboo has become tall enough that the stalks are ‘living art.’

Harvesting this bamboo has transformed this grass from an overgrown and overwhelming  state into a calm bamboo forest!  This space is becoming more balanced and comfortable.  The openness also represents letting new energy into the life areas that run along the fence:  wealth, fame and relationships!

The element that dominates these three life areas is the element of fire.  Bamboo represents the element of wood which is supportive of fire.  It is also the strongest wood on the planet that represents longevity.  It is a good plant to support health, wealth and happiness in these three life areas!

For more on uses of harvested bamboo visit Living in Natures Love our sister site to empower personal landscape connection for health and wellness.


Where is your relationships corner?

Imagine a nine square grid overlaying your property.  Three rows of three, equal in size.  Now stand on the street facing your property.  The relationship corner is the last square to the right in the farthest row of three.  Now walk back into your garden as though for the first time and observe this area and what story it may share.

Consider a consult with me, in person, face-time or by phone!

Fun & Cheap Gardening Ideas!

Relationship Corner 2016-05-29 14.37.35When it came to fixing up our relationship corner we didn’t have a plan until at the beach gathering Nootka Rose petals.  It’s where we noticed some beautiful rounded bark with red lines.  Gathering this bark along with some different driftwood pieces a great corner emerged!  What was the cost?  Our own effort. and $20.00 for sand, #20.00 for gravel and #20.00 for compost!
