Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travellinjack very nice product
Using plastic ties, I attached this to a chain link fence for privacy Looks great! Seems quite well made, with heavy duty wire connecting the bamboo together. The spacing is pretty good, with maybe 1/8 to 1/4 inch gaps between some of the bamboo, which is the spacing we wanted. I've only had them up for a month, so I can't attest to the longeivity, but it looks promising. Very attractive fence now

I purchased this bamboo because it looks well made and I felt it would last longer than the reed fencing. It took 2 adults to left and secure the fence. We used zip ties to attach the fence around our pool. I rate the fence at 3 stars because it is not protected from UV rays and funguses. I purchased outdoor water sealant that proclaims to protect from uv damage and funguses. The spray application just ended up beading up on the fence. So we used paper towels to spread the sealant. The fence did come with some dark spots and gaps in between which is ok with us. I just want the fence to last years and not one season. The fence has been up a couple of weeks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moab302 Excellent quality building material
We used to buy our bamboo from Cali Bamboo directly. It was much more expensive than Home Depot and they didn't offer a freight program. Home Depot's material comes from Cali Bamboo in the end, at a better price and freight paid on $250 orders. Yay!
We had to go elsewhere for the redwood, as Home Depot no longer carries it in my area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CEP Great for privacy and pleasant appearance
We purchased this to put up against ~ half of our existing fence on our apartment porch to add some privacy. Initially, I was concerned that it would block too much light but it doesn't! We finished it with a warm, golden color and it seems to enhance the lighting rather than diminish it and it gives the entire porch a more outdoors-y feel, especially when paired with plants.We fastened it to our porch fence with zip ties. We are now enjoying our moments on our porch- in privacy and in warm glow of bamboo in sunset.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Elvis Not bad.
I purchased 4 rolls of fencing. The color varied from roll to roll. There were also some imperfections with the metal cable that held them together. (ex. The cable did not go thru the bamboo stalk but missed and was exposed. ) Some of the stalks were bent and not as straight as they could have been.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pat5208 Very rustic and inconsistent color.
This fence is made up of bamboo poles tied together, the length, with three pieces of wire. The only way to secure it to your frame is by screwing it in. Bamboo is hollow. If you screw in too tightly you will split the bamboo which is undesirable. You must pre-drill each hole before screwing it in and don't screw in too far. Use tan colored decking screws, at least 2" long, so you can attempt to hide the fact that you had to use screws in the first place. I bought two rolls of natural bamboo fencing, each 8 feet long. The first roll was nice looking with hints of brown and green highlights. The second roll was plain colored bamboo. The color distinction is evident. Otherwise a nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigMommaD Exactly what we wanted!
So I consider myself a pretty particular person and it is hard for me to be impressed by something but my husband and I both were extremely impressed with this product. I did months of research over the winter on how to do privacy railings on our deck surrounding our pool. I looked at buying from companies that only sold bamboo products to companies that only sold fencing. None of them had much I could find good or bad on the internet (which is a little sketchy to me) and all charged shipping. One place never answered the phone when I called and I tried 3 times (again, sketchy). We needed about 17 of these 8ft long rolls to get all the way around the deck so for this size purchase I wanted to feel good about where I was spending the money and that it was a real company. I decided on Home Depot because of the reviews and reputable company if I had problems. Plus the free shipping was a big cost savings. I ordered 2 rolls at first so my husband and I could see if we liked it before making a huge purchase of it. Came UPS in individual boxes and it was bagged inside the box in this ventilated fabric. Came out of the box and bag and we were immediately impressed with the uniqueness of each piece and how sturdy they were. My husband just built a frame on the deck between the posts putting a 2x6 on the bottom front and back leaving a 2" gap between and then 2x4's front and back on the top leaving the same 2" gap. Then he cut the bamboo roll to width to fit between the posts and slid the bamboo into the frame he just built. Was more private and easier than we ever could have expected! He would use the pieces he cut off and put 2 smaller pieces into a frame and you couldn't even tell where the one roll ended and the other begin, just looked like one seamless piece so we were able to use pretty much all of it. There were a lot of singles from what he took off the ends to get the width right but we kept them and will repurpose them. All 17 rolls looked identical in size and color too. Some were really green when we first put them up but all turned the same color as the treated wood within a day in the sun. When we placed the big order for the 15 rolls it came by freight company on a skid. I am the only person who wrote a review that ordered this much that I can tell so I doubt anyone else will have to worry about this, but someone will have to be home to sign for it. Comes all on a skid and you get a 4 hour window in which to be home. He just dropped it in the driveway and left. My husband had all 15 sections of bamboo measured, cut and in place in about 5 hours. Would have spent a fortune and many weekends to get the same privacy out of wood. My backyard is elevated compared to my neighbors so they just stand there and watch us in the pool. Now we have privacy not only outside but it blocks their view into our house too! Turned our deck into an instant island oasis! I bought tropical plants and thatch umbrellas to compliment the bamboo. It looks perfect. Sealing it with Cedar Shield. You have to seal these things or you'll have no end if trouble just like wood. And Cedar Shield is a one time application you never have to do it again. I was skeptical but extremely glad we made this purchase. In the Nebraska heat and cold I will truly test this stuff. If I have issues I will update this review but now that it's up and been a few days extremely satisfied! I will attach a pic.
