Will Fargesia nitida damage nearby tarmac?
I need to put a boundary hedge round my new build house and the Council have objected to my suggestion that we use Fargesia nitida on the basis that the root system is likely to damage the adjacent footpath. They are asking for us to suggest native species of hedging. First off, does anyone have any experience of whether or not Fargesia species will damage tarmaced areas close by? If you can confirm that it will cause such damage are there any other suggestions. They'd like somthing that will quickly get to 2-3m and I would like something that complements my very modern house. It is 30m long and to the north & west of the house (about 15feet away so some shade from the house). I'm in Oxfordshire.
