Beautiful.question on the plants used. - Is this bamboo? Will it multiply and take over this space? Also, what are the other plants? Shade required?

RH Factor Landscape Design
You must be very excited about your new home. Perhaps I was being too subtle, but really meant I would be happy to provide you with professional services, for a fee. Much as I would love to share my expertise without worrying about compensation, I have to prioritize and work first for those who are paying my fees, or I won't have a company for long. And spring has sprung here in Houston. I am two weeks out on work as it stands. Please contact me at rhfactor@mac.com if you are interested in a contract proposal. And, if interested, please share your artwork with me. I select 2 or 3 artists or professionals per year to trade work with... My landscape design for their artwork (or photography, graphic design, etc.). I started my creative life in the Fine Arts and am quite proud of my growing collection of art. I can only do barter work during the off-seasons during the heat from mid-July - mid September, and during the winter December thru January. That might be a very fun way to work together. again, thank you for your kind words and best of luck with your new home.

Oh, I totally understood; that you'd be glad, professionally; to help; and also why I said I didn't want to take advantage of you since I'm not quite ready to hire someone. Sometimes professionals on houzz offer their thoughts or suggestions; such as when I had questions about granite vs soapstone countertops. I really didn't expect you to do a landscape design. But when I get to the point of designing the landscape I may give you a shout. Maybe would could do an exchange. My web site is www.lindamccall.com. I'll be watching for more of your work on houzz!

That is bambusa lako timor black, a clumping bamboo. Culms will eventually reach 3", height 25-30', and it is freeze hardy only to 25 degrees. Being in this sheltered courtyard it came back from roots after 20 degree low. It is not invasive, not a running bamboo, but the clumps do get larger over time.
