Hi everyone! My wife and I live on a very small Island in the southern B.C. Gulf Islands. She already has a lovely and extensive garden, and I am about to embark on the building of a Japanese style garden. Over 35 years ago I constructed a small Japanese garden in Abbotsford, complete with pond and recirculating stream. Let me assure you that whatever I managed to learn then has long been forgotten! I fear I am going to need lots of help. The area, very roughly 100' by a wavy 40' or so, is nearly ready to have the first plants put in. One of the things I would like is to have a running bamboo or two, which I would guide along the back of the garden, the intent being to form a natural fence or hedge. Something that could grow to 10' plus would be nice, as there is a definite view we would rather not see. Also I would like a couple of shorter bamboos, clumping, in other parts of the garden. Could I get your suggestions as to which bamboos may be preferred for this? And any suggestions or advice you can pass along will be immensely appreciated. I have lots more questions, but I thought I might start here. Thank you for your help.
