We're about to start working on securing our house. One thing we know we need on the back part of our property is a fence of some sort. I'm trying to keep costs down but security up. I know that any fence I choose will only delay an intruder from leaving or arriving. I have access to unlimited bamboo from a neighboring farm, so my only cost in a live bamboo fence would be labor in planting it. So, I'd like to know if a live bamboo fence would provide similar security features as other fence styles like barbed wire or chain link.
I already know about the spreading potential of bamboo and it doesn't concern me for the space where I would be planting it.
