Bamboo Poles for Gardening - Are They Worth It?

Bamboo poles are a very useful addition to your garden. They are very strong, durable, and are available in many different sizes and shapes. You will find that they are very stable, easy to use and versatile. However, you need to consider what type of garden you have before you buy a pole. For example, is it going to be used mainly for potting or flower beds or something more substantial?

Bamboo poles can be used for both, but the best type to choose depends on what you plan to do with them. There are different types of poles and we should go over them now. You have the traditional wood type pole. This is the most common of the two and is often made of oak. It is strong and has a natural tendency to crack. If you want a more solid pole, consider a metal or plastic one.

A good quality bamboo pole will be very durable and last for many years if taken care of properly. You can either purchase poles individually, which is probably the best way to go, or you can get 'staked' bamboo poles. These are ones that are put through the process of being staked into the ground so that they do not rest unevenly. This makes them more stable and prevents any from slipping or falling over.

How are bamboo stakes used? Well, most often they are put through the process of being soaked in water, then covered in leaves and soil to harden, and finally hammered flat. This hardening process creates a very strong bamboo pole. They can also be hammered using a hammer or by hand. The type of pole you use really depends on the style of gardening you plan on doing.

What type of maintenance is involved? Well, like any other tool or equipment, bamboo poles need to be maintained. A bamboo rod is typically blunt, so it must be sharpened regularly. This is usually done using a small hammer on a regular basis. If it gets damaged somehow, you can sharpen it with another small stone.

Can you drill holes with a bamboo pole? Unfortunately no. Because of the hollow core of the bamboo pole, drilling through it would be very dangerous. It would not only damage the bamboo pole but open the bamboo up for possible pests or insects to get into. Also, because of how it is constructed, it would be extremely difficult to drill a hole through it. Because of these factors, it is not recommended to drill bamboo poles.
