Description of Japanese Bamboo Fence
A Japanese bamboo fence, also called “takekaki” or “tsutsuji”, is made from bamboo canes or poles and commonly used in Japan for privacy and aesthetic purposes in gardens, patios, and outdoor spaces. These bamboo fences are fabricated from bamboo canes that are tied together to form a sturdy, woven structure and are easy to install and maintain. The bamboo canes are usually treated to prevent moisture damage and to enhance their durability.

Weakness of Natural Bamboo Fences
Bamboo fencing, like any other fencing material, has also met its challenges against natural elements. Even though bamboo is a strong and durable material, it will still discolor, mold, and rot when exposed to a harsh natural environment. Regular maintenance such as staining or sealing, is required to protect against moisture damage and prevent decay. This ongoing maintenance cost is a huge burden to both homeowner or commercial property owners. They will need to spend both time and money annually to maintain this bamboo fencing beauty. Plus, bamboo is not widely planted in some regions and they are heavy and oversized. You will need to spend more to pay for shipping. Finally, the production of bamboo can harm the environment, as it can involve the use of pesticides and other chemicals that can harm wildlife and ecosystems.
