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.

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

Bamboo World in Vancouver, Canada http://www.bambooworld.com/bamboo-plants lists species and temperature ranges in which they can survive. I'm about to plant Fargesia clumping bamboo here in Toronto, Canada in with winters that can reach -30C. Contact me next summer and I'll let you know if they survived!

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.

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.

Upright plants, such as bamboo and bird of paradise (Strelitzia reginae) in narrow planters soften and reduce the impact of the height of the tall boundary walls and fences. Where space is even tighter you could also train climbers to grow up the walls to add greenery.
