What Houzz contributors are saying:

Matt Kilburn added this to Small Garden? You Can Still Do Bamboo
Growing bamboo in a container. Containing root growth is a big concern with running bamboo plantings. Some running bamboo can flourish in a container. Because the plant is above ground and often surrounded by hardscape, all the growth is concentrated within the contained space. You will need to make sure the container is well irrigated, though, or your bamboo's leaves may go brown. Tip: Bamboo doesn't do well in drought situations, so automated irrigation systems are a great way to ensure regular watering.

Wide, narrow planter for bamboo. Does bamboo work well with minimal watering and maintenance? Are there concerns about containing the size over time?

This is one long planter but it is lower and less broken up than the larger pots idea and utilizes the river rocks and I do like the plants themselves. Maybe this would work along the house wall under the living room window.

covering idea (irrigation/utilities, etc) build a planter box around it, install housing around the anti-siphon valves, then plant inside other independent housing to keep the plants / valves separate so you can maintain both.
