Getting rid of bamboo
I recently purchased a small lot in the town of Garibaldi. In the back yard there is a large clump (approx. 40 feet long x 8 feet wide) of bamboo. It has been growing there for many years. I want to do my best to get rid of it. How's the best way to start, and how do I keep it in check for years to come? Is it actually ever possible to get rid of it entirely?
