    How do I stop an already spreading bamboo problem?
    The neighbor to this house has a section of bamboo planted.
    They ended up putting in a root wall on 3 of the sides but not on the forth side. The bamboo is coming up in different sections of the lawn already and has to be mowed frequently. Is it too late to block this section since there are roots already spreaded into the yard. How can it be contained or removed??

    Thanks

    You will just have to dig it out. There was a post not too long ago about this. Search for it. There was a round-up solution that was posted on here, find it.

    This is a quote from heritage..

    "...On[e] way that works well is to cut bamboo 2-4 inches from the ground and spray an ounce or two of round- up pro (41% A.I.)
    diluted to a 5% solution....(6.4 oz. RU per gallon water) into each shoot. I use a backpack sprayer with the nozzle removed to save time. After 1st treatment you should have less than 2% growback.....Follow up same as above and bye-bye bamboo...Total."
