Copper Bamboo Garden Border
BLACK+DECKER B+D Contributor 186 Projects
A touch of copper wire adds interest and whimsy to bamboo garden edging. Want to call attention to your favorite flowers or set aside a section of your garden for herbs or exotic tropicals? Adding a support structure is one dramatic way to define a garden space. This project combines the natural beauty and structure of bamboo with the flowing accent of copper. As a three-part folding form, it can be shaped in a variety of ways: as a triangle, as a zigzag or as a straight edge border. Whichever form you choose, the beauty of bamboo and the rich color of copper will create a design reward in your garden.
You can create any design you wish, but we have used a large, spiral cee-shaped scroll hooked over itself, and a small loop-the-loop to help hold it in place. Heights for edging can vary depending on the height of featured plants. An herb garden edging would be a smaller height than an edging for taller perennial plants. Our example is for middle range plants.
