Synthetic Bamboo

Highly realistic PVC bamboo is hand painted and even has raised nodes just like our natural bamboo. It is a perfect substitute that can be submerged, used to sleeve steel or concrete columns or electrical conduit, or used in other climates or spaces that are unfriendly to the real thing. Additionally, it will not crack as it ages, and it is treated with a UV-stabilized mixture making it resistant to weathering affects – beautiful golden bamboo year after year with no maintenance.

20’ lengths must be shipped by freight truck. We can make cuts for $2.00 a cut. UPS can ship lengths of 8’ and less.

We now have the Synthetic Bamboo available in Bamboo Green. Same price as natural. Couplings and Caps available for all size poles.
