This budget bamboo mat on a roll is made of Chinese Tonkin natural bamboo sticks with a diameter of 10 - 30 mm. Bamboo mats Budget Natural are available in different sizes and you can easily shorten them yourself. Because the mats are mounted with steel wire, they are bendable and can therefore be bent around curves.
Each bamboo pole is unique. Colour differences and variations in the width of the bamboo poles are normal for this natural product. Vertical cracking is also a natural property of the material. Especially in the hot and dry months of the year, vertical cracks can appear in bamboo. In humid and cold weather, the cracks are smaller than in dry and hot weather. Tearing of the bamboo does not affect the lifespan of the mat.
We also have these mats in our inspiration garden. You can view the Bamboo mat Budget Natural here and, if necessary, take it directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our materials directly from the source, you are assured of the best price and unique bamboo mats.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGAfter installing the bamboo mats you can apply our Bamboo Protector, a specially developed colorless/transparent stain that protects the bamboo from tarnish and discoloration.
With outdoor use, bamboo will gray and discolor, just like any natural material. We therefore recommend to treat bamboo annually, preferably in spring, with our Bamboo Protector, a specially developed stain that protects the bamboo and restores the color. Bamboo Renovator is easy to apply to cleaned bamboo using a brush. When doing so, use thin layers and spread Bamboo Renovator well.
For cleaning bamboo you can use our Bamboo Cleaner. Possibly with stubborn dirt / deposits bamboo can also be sprayed off with a high pressure cleaner. But at an appropriate distance to avoid damage.
LOOKING FOR A SHINY RESULTThere is also an alternative maintenance product available. Namely the Bamboo Booster, this is a natural oil that can easily be applied with a cloth. With this oil you get a nice shiny result. The oil protects and nourishes the bamboo, but does not slow down the process of discoloration. Bamboo Booster can be applied several times a year for optimal results.
The oil can only not be combined with our Bamboo Protector and Bamboo Renovator stain.

Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
