Considering clumping bamboo grinding?

Sydney Bamboo Grinding can quickly and easily remove it.

Why should bamboo be removed?

Bamboo is one of the most invasive plants on the planet. And, due to its rapid growth rate, your bamboo hedge or privacy screen can quickly turn into a forest if not well maintained.

Let’s dig a little deeper. There are two types of bamboo plants:


Clumping bamboo. Clumping bamboo grows in clumps which means its growth is easier to predict, growing slowly in dense clusters. 

Running bamboo. Running bamboo varieties run horizontally instead. These types of bamboo plants can quickly invade neighbouring properties. Consider its name a caution and not-so-subtle hint that you should run from this type of bamboo.

Running Bamboo vs Clumping Bamboo infograph

Whilst you can attempt to control the spread of bamboo by containing root systems and planting a type that suits your garden, it’s often easier to remove it. You should do this particularly if its spread has become an eyesore or has an amount of leaf litter that is too hard to maintain.

Please note, we only work with clumping bamboo type not the running type. Often it may look like running bamboo but in fact It's clumping.  If you are unsure please feel free to call and we can usually clarify over the phone or via a photo.

We Specialise in the Successful Removal of Clumping Bamboo Roots

Can I remove bamboo myself?

If you’ve decided to remove unwanted bamboo, we wouldn’t blame you for thinking that cutting it down is a simple solution. But, bamboo is tough and can grow back if its root systems aren’t properly treated. You can repeatedly cut the stalks to hinder its growth, physically dig up and remove the roots (rhizomes), or try to kill the root system with a glyphosate based poison. You may even try a combination of these. Although, be warned. Each of these methods can take time, effort and due diligence to completely eradicate bamboo and may not always be successful.

How to remove bamboo permanently

The most effective way to permanently remove bamboo roots is to use specialised equipment. At Sydney Bamboo Grinding we provide a thorough root removal service. By using a machine with a high-speed rotating cutter wheel, armed with sharp teeth, we can make short work of bamboo root systems. We can access properties with steep banks, stairs, narrow pathways, corners or pool areas. If you have bamboo in raised garden beds, planter boxes or difficult to reach areas, they’re no match for our expertise.


If you’re feeling bamboozled by your bamboo and you’re thinking of removing it, let us do the hard work for you.

How We Work

Tight access no problem for our grinder

At Sydney Bamboo Grinding, we promptly respond to your questions and provide a quote for the job after conducting a site inspection at your property or also from photographs. Once booked, we’ll give you a courtesy phone call before the booked date to confirm the details. 

We take health and safety seriously and will install temporary safety barriers to protect your pets and property, particular window panes and panels. 

After we’ve successfully removed your bamboo, we’ll fill the hole left by the roots and clean and blower vac the surrounding area. 

The mixture of bamboo chips, and soil that’s removed from the area creates a great natural mulch. This mulch is good for building up a compost, stopping weed growth and reducing moisture loss from the soil around other plants in your garden.

Bamboo is now all gone, roots and all!

Ross came to our property, and did a professional job in removing our bamboo. Bamboo is now all gone, roots and all!


Great job, quick response, reasonable price

Ross removed bamboo roots for us. Great job, quick response, reasonable price Easy to deal with great communication


Great service. Highly recommended

Ross tackled the overgown mass of bamboo in my garden. Great job . Great service. Highly recommended.


He was cautious not to damage the garden or house

Ross was very efficient and professional. He started on time and worked right through a tuff day. We had a number or old and large bamboo clumps and Ross used different grinders to suit each job. He was cautious not to damage the garden or house while working and somehow got only a small amount of debris in the pool considering the amount of bamboo around the pool. He finished on time and cleaned up after himself. Highly recommended.


Fantastic job

I had bamboo growing up through my paving. Ross came and did a fantastic job of removing the bamboo root system whilst keeping the fence undamaged. The space was very tight and he did the job to perfection.


Very professional to deal with

Very professional to deal with. Had to get rid of bamboo stumps along a fence line that was also behind the shed. All taken care of. Highly recommended.


Took meticulous care

We called Ross for the removal the last of the difficult and huge bamboo roots left in our garden bed in Sydney. (Never plant bamboo anywhere!) The bamboo removal had cost us a fortune in labourers and excavators etc - and for the hardest part - we called in Ross, at our wits end. Ross was extremely prompt in delivering a quote and attending to the job. His quote was entirely reasonable and fair. Much like the other reviewers, I can vouch for the fact that Ross was highly professional: he had all the right gear (including safety gear); he took meticulous care with the removal of the stumps from a very narrow, difficult space, and he left the area immaculate. I highly recommend Ross for your stump removal - and if you have had the misfortune of having to remove bamboo - start with Ross!
