JUST SAY, "NO!" TO BAMBOO IN YOUR YARD
Bamboo does provide privacy for yards and gardens, but it draws mosquitoes like a magnet. Some years ago, I lived on beautiful St. Simons Island, one of the barrier islands on the Georgia Coast. The house came with a beautiful stand or bamboo that embraced a stone patio, and it was lovely. The mosquitoes loved it, as well, and were a constant presence most of the year. You are warned!
