The bamboo grove is through some woods so, unfortunately, I can't incorporate it into my plan. Also, I'm very reluctant to use living plants as the climate here is ideal and it becomes very invasive, very quickly. I've thought a nice clump of black bamboo would be very attractive component of the garden but in 5 years it would be all over the neighborhood! We have a similar problem with wisteria which can also become very invasive.
My information source for this fence is "Building Bamboo Fences" by Isao Yoshikawa. His descriptions and instructions are very clear and understandable even for a 1st time builder. I have taken liberties, however. The vertical strips of bamboo, tateko, are predrilled and nailed into horizontal supports, called dobuchi. In the book Mr. Yoshikawa calls for bamboo dobuchi but I've substituted pressure treated (PT) wood. I'll supply a photo of the back of the fence in the next few days. Mr. Yoshikawa also calls for a round vertical support (oyabashira) at each end of a fence section but I'm using PT 4"X4"X8' (8.9cmX8.9cmX2.44m) posts buried 2' (.60m) into the ground.
Each of the tateko are a quarter of one bamboo cane. These are produced using a bamboo splitter (I'm sorry, I don't know the Japanese name for this tool.) which I purchased from Hida Tool & Hardware Co., San Francisco, CA. It does a very nice job and is much easier than using a power tool like a band saw (and considerably cheaper). After splitting the interior of the bamboo is cleaned up a bit with a small camp axe or machete.
Hope this answers some of your questions. -John
