Michael fell in love with bamboo during a visit to Japan, so black bamboo fencing was a natural choice for his home in Miami. The serpentine shape was challenging, but came out perfect with the advice of a skilled carpenter. “Everyone in Miami who has seen my fence is amazed. It has altered the feel of my backyard and my home,” says Michael. “The energy of bamboo is something marvelous, soothing, dare I say spiritual. It is a majestic, amazing plant.”
