Photo du Jour: Schoolyard bamboo garden and faux wood bench April 10, 2009 Photograph courtesy Karen at Greenwalks Share Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps Share Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps Comments KarenApril 10, 2009Thanks for featuring my photo! I just proofed an article for the school newspaper about the bamboo. The kids are really studying it as a renewable resource and they have worked on preparing the garden all year long. I did notice some of the plants looked a little stressed recently, I hope they will recover from transplant shock followed by a week of spring break (with probably little or no supplemental water and dry/sunny days). I have seen a lot of kids sitting on the benches, they are a real addition to school life!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyGeorgia (localecology.org)April 12, 2009Thanks for letting me use the photo. If I had more garden space, I would replicate this design.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyBartApril 15, 2009That is a nice photo and the bamboo in the container is a nice combination.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyDanielaMay 12, 2012what kind of container is this?ReplyDeleteRepliesGeorgiaMay 15, 2012Daniela: thanks for the question but I don't have the answer. You could ask the designer, Karen. You can find her at Seattle Area Garden Bloggers United to Talk on Facebook.DeleteRepliesReplyReplyscddJune 04, 2012I love this look. It's a galvanized livestock tank. Zinc coated steel used for watering livestock. Runs about $90 for a 100 gallon tank. Great solution for keeping bamboo in its place.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment Thank you for commenting on this post!
