About Got Bamboo
Who is Got Bamboo
Got Bamboo Inc. was established to manage bamboo removal projects for our clients.
Groundbreakers Group is our landscape design, build and install firm.
As a landscape design firm, Groundbreakers Group, in the past hired several bamboo removal companies on Long Island to remove bamboo from our projects. After the bamboo was removed, it returned. Our clients were not happy. We contacted the companies but all gave the same answer, “no guarantees”. Unacceptable!
Why We Started Got Bamboo
So we decided to remove the bamboo ourselves and started Got Bamboo, Success at last! Our clients were happy. Got Bamboo has the expertise, men and equipment to get the job done. Little did we know that Got Bamboo would become such a success story.
Got Bamboo is the only company on Long Island with an unconditional One Year Warranty at no additional cost to the client. If bamboo returns within that time we remove the plants free of charge. Bamboo plants are invasive and grow quickly. In most cases bamboo will return within 30 days if not completely removed. Within 90 days bamboo either returns or is completely gone. We stand by our service guarantees.
Bamboo Lowers Property Values
Our corporate clients include real estate firms for whom we prepare site analysis reports for the buyer and seller. The buyer’s reports are compiled to assist in lowering the seller’s asking price. This is achieved by finding issues with the property that could cost the buyer additional funds after the sale. One of the issues is bamboo, which reduces property values. A buyer does not want to cope with bamboo. Buyers either request a price reduction, which is usually higher than the cost of removing bamboo, or just walk away from the listing.
The problem with bamboo is that most varieties found in the US are “running bamboo” that are very difficult to control. Bamboo is actually a grass, not a tree, and its roots consist of rhizomes which spread horizontally through the soil at a rapid pace. Once established, bamboo is almost impossible for the non-professionals to eradicate and can take over a yard in just a few years.
Because bamboo does not respect property lines it can easily spread to neighboring yards. In addition bamboo roots can be very damaging to sidewalks, other plants, driveways and even foundations. There is absolutely no reason to plant bamboo in your yard. An educated consumer will shy away from buying a home when bamboo is present. If you have bamboo in your yard and are thinking of selling your home, it is a good idea for you to start working on getting rid of the bamboo by a professional service.
You might put your home on the market in the hopes that you will find a buyer that does not care or is poorly informed about bamboo. However, be warned that real estate agents are themselves becoming more informed about invasive plants such as bamboo. Simply put, these days the presence of bamboo around your home (even if it is in your neighbor’s yard) is a “red flag” and can greatly affect the value of your home. Homeowners spend thousands of dollars on kitchens, bathrooms and other amenities to increase the home’s value but ignore the bamboo issue. The existence of bamboo can negatively affect the selling price. After the sale the bamboo is the buyer’s problem, no longer the seller’s. The town will eventually get involved, issue a violation and take legal action based on their town or village codes.
Our mission is to constantly exceed each customer’s expectations while working and communicating with them to provide a smooth transition of work, assuring quality, craftsmanship and professionalism.
