Which variety for Bamboo entrance "thicket"?

I want to disguise the entrance to my Jungle garden, and I thought I would make a windy-path through bamboo so that there wasn't a clear line-of-sight into the Jungle, and thus it would be a surprise when came-upon. Doesn't have to be Bamboo, so open to other suggestions. ...

bamboo leaves too high in silica?

I remember hearing somewhere that bamboo leaves arehigh in silica and great for mulching bamboo. However would this cause issues for other plants? I ask because my P NIgra are getting quite large now and produce lots of old leaves.
