we have bamboo coming through our lawn, from next doors garden, what is the best way to get rid of it.



The only way to stop it that I know is to cut the rhizomes with a spade. They tend to follow a straight line from the mother plant. Cut any growth on your side of the fence and they will eventually die back. You have to be more persistent than the Bamboo.
