What You Can Do – With Bamboo!
Bamboo is a tremendously versatile, highly sustainable and renewable resource – and the perfect alternative to hardwoods. It can be harvested every 3 to 5 years compared to 10 to 25 years for most other soft and hard woods – and never needs replanting as it continues to grow from the same root system. It’s innate characteristics and strength rivals maple and oak and due to its water resistant properties won’t shrink or swell like most hardwoods. This unique species of grass can be implemented into any home renovation project from cabinetry to flooring and everything in between
