View Full Version : need help killing bamboo

ok here goes. i got a pretty big job to do at a residence. new sod, sand, general cleanup on the whole yard. There is a giant bamboo plant by a fence. the owner wants this removed while i am doing this job. I have to get a small tractor with a bucket and backhoe on it for some other stuff. if i dig the bamboo up with the backhoe what can i put in the ground to help make sure this junk does not grow back up through the new sod that i will be installing. i know bamboo is probably one of the hardest plants to kill and i am just wondering if ya'll have any ideas on getting this stuff killed. thanks

As far as I know, as long as you get all the roots, you should be good. It's nearly impossible, but if you have a backhoe, you should be able to do a good job destroying it.
