Very nice photos Jacko, especially the "up-shot"

Do you have a photo of the whole garden so that they can be seen in context?

Looking great.

What would you do with them all if you ever moved?

Your bamboos are looking very healthy Jacko.

Have you put up some sort of bamboo barrier in the first shot to stop the bamboos from flopping over?

ive left the old washing line in place on the right side that is at the height of 5ft 6ins,that holds back a lot.the nigra on the left has a rope around it at the 6ft mark.the rest of the canopy above flops over to form the arch effect and anything that flops lower gets pruned.

That arch looks stunning! A couple at large Cycas Revoluta or medium sized tree ferns at the camera end would look amazing.
