Bamboo control?

Asked June 11, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

If I cut down the bamboo, will that cause it to spread more? Any suggestions on how to contain or eliminate it?

Hi:
Depending on how big the area is, mowing it multiple times may control it. Usually underground barriers are necessary to prevent it from spreading.
