I didn't select the plant materials, but I do know the wonderful grass to the right of the image is Japanese Blood Grass.

This one was applied over the concrete retaining walls we engineered to deal with the grade change from our client's property to the uphill neighbor's. The bamboo was very inexpensive. The concrete not so much.

The bamboo was used to hide structural retaining walls. The neighboring property was much higher than my client's.

The best and easiest source is Home Depot . com. I purchased it in black for my grandaughter's platform bed and up the wall for her headboard. i've used it as wall covering also. Great stuff.

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Tips From Great Urban Gardens
4. The power of fencing. In the suburbs and the country, fencing is often used to used to keep dogs and kids in or to define the space of the yard, but in the city, it's can be used as a design element. Rather than fencing has space so you can see through it, tightly woven, tall fencing can create an outdoor room and urban sanctuary in an instant.
Whether you insert blood grass into an existing planting or let it be the star, there is certainly a place for it in your mild-climate garden. Give it a try, but if you’re a Southern gardener, keep close watch that you don’t have a thug on your hands!More: Great Design Grasses
7. Build a small pond. When you have a small yard, you may not want a water feature to dominate it. A pond in the back corner will beckon visitors to your yard's outer edges.
Stray from the ordinary. If you have to have a fence or wall, try going with a unique material. This bamboo adds interest to a retaining wall and helps enhance the yard's Asian feel.

April 7, 2014
I'm looking for low cost, high privacy, visually interesting, and something the neighbors will be up for. It is sold at the big box home improvement stores and Walmart. Reviews indicate that it is a temporary (under 5 yrs) option, and that the wire holding the bamboo together frequently breaks, meaning there will be constant maintenance. Reviews also indicate that it doesn't afford the privacy that it appears to in this particular photo. Perhaps using bamboo that is not already attached to a roll would be an option...
