Bamboo is a wonderful eco resource which can be harvested and used in a massive range of applications. If you have bamboo growing - use it. If you want to build with bamboo and are not sure which variety that will suit you best - ask us. Our bamboos cut & sell are grown in Byron Bay.
Every clump on this property has a use for someone - you are individual and so is bamboo. Everytime someone calls for bamboo poles I get excited - ideas and uses are so diverse. People are experimenting with bamboo poles instead of using timber. This can only be a good thing for our planet. Soon a building standard will be established - then it will be seen everywhere and used in so much more construction. The list of uses is as endless as our imagination - if you need ideas or information please call me. Thanks for visiting my site and enjoy working with your bamboo - K.

Treatment & Preservation:At BBBA we endeavour to use minimal chemicals and be organic as possible. However like other organic timbers, Bamboo poles need to be treated to preserve. Those wishing to purchase treated Bamboo for Timber and Construction – our poles have had a preliminary treatment.For outdoor use & longevity, we recommend species less prone to insect attack. Like timber bamboo should be treated in a manner appropriate to requirements. i.e. Furniture should be lacquered. Bamboo should be kept off the ground and ends sealed from the elements. Most bamboo will split over time when exposed to sun and weather. Note: Recommendations are made to the best of our knowledge however, given the range of bamboo types applications & environmental variants additional treatment maybe required.

Interested in growing your own fence or chubby ? Making a musical instrument from bamboo or even constructing a house ?
There are particular varieties of bamboo which are specific to certain needs. I.e. Vittata is a soft ornamental bamboo not a construction species.
Asper is a tough timber bamboo which provides excellent quality material for a range of building applications. Gracilis and Textilis are superior weaving bamboos.
It makes sense to plant a bamboo which can be used later. ASK us if you need a special bamboo for your project.
