I would always argue against planting bamboo. Sometimes they are not an issue but, usually,,they are a nightmare. Those that plant them are mostly aware of the risk.
I am lucky here in not being overlooked by neighbours and I agree with Jo ....my garden is also my retreat, don't want a daily relationship with any of them or a "needy" one or a chat over the fence. I do help and support people but my own space is important to me. Nothing selfish in wanting that
