Susan, glad you like the name .
We decided to be brave, and not use the chemicals, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. So we carefully removed the fence slats (so we can replace them later) and we chopped/sawed the bamboo down to about 1inch tall. We then carefully poured boiling water on the stumps and roots. Hoping this will work after a few goes.....
To be honest I don't think the landlord would notice if it was taken over completely by bamboo. When we moved in it was a jungle of Forsythia, Laurel and Snowberry.
