Bamboo is a type of grass that grows without much need for irrigation or fertilizer. Bamboo has hundreds of uses and its fibre can even be made into high density planks, rivaling the durability and beauty of increasingly rare (and expensive) hardwood tree species. Bamboo is an eco-friendly and inexpensive natural building material that should be utilized more in South Africa.
