What type of bamboo is this? - It looks like Japanese bamboo but it's hard to tell without seeing the leaves up close.

Would that bambo survive winter? I want to "hide" my pool from the street. Just to down some deck and realized it hid the pool a bit. Tore down deck because way to much deck built by pervious owner. Wanted space to garden. Saw your idea for the bamboo and loved it.

I'm not sure what part of the world you are from but can't see why not, bamboo is originally from China and Japan where they have very cold winters with snow. You just need to pick the right variety.

Bamboo - I live in North Georgia. Can this bamboo survive here, and is bamboo an evergreen?

Thanks for the question, bit hard to answer if this bamboo would survive on the other side of the world but can't see why not as bamboo is originally from Japan & China which get snow. Should be able to handle a Georgian winter. This particular bamboo is called Slender Weaver Bamboo or Bambusa textilis Gracillis and is evergreen, but drops leaf litter all year round. For a definitive answer on the bamboo i suggest getting in contact with www.redcloudbamboo.com.au

How do I select the right interior color palette for my new "project" house? - I've purchased a 1928 Mission/ Tudor style home in a great historical neighborhood and will be doing renovations inside - I'm looking for a comprehensive integrated color palette. Thoughts on the best way to go?

To be honest i'm not exactly sure what that style is as we are based in Australia. I would recommend you search for a colour consultant whose role is purely to help you make colour and paint sample selections. There is always Interior designers or Interior Architects but these would be more costly than a Colour Consultant. Hope this helps.

Where can I find solar powered lighting like the ones illuminating the plants?

You will never find solar powered lights that illuminate like these as they won't be strong enough. We recommend using LED fittings that are powerful enough but require a fraction on the energy to power them over normal halogen. If you put solar panels on your roof you could run your LED system for 0 bills / 0 emissions.

We buy all our lighting through Gardens At Night - www.gan.com.au

Sorry, Not quite sure what you mean by the question? The timber landing is only around 1200mm wide. The whole back yard is 5 x 10m. Its a small courtyard design.

Its a 500 x 1000mm flamed granite paving, some stone merchants call it raven finish rather than flamed.

It is a clumping bamboo variety called bambusa textilis gracilis and is fine to plant anywhere and does not become invasive like other creeping varieties.
