Wanting to use Bamboo against fence for privacy. Neighbors have a 2 story house that looks down into ours. Need about 12-14 feet of plant height.

The space is around 13" wide of dirt between fence and sidewalk. (see pictures). Is that too narrow for clumping bamboo to grow?

I don't know if these images are showing up or not....didn't in preview

If it were me, I wouldn't plant there. I am assuming that the fence is the property line. In my opinion neither a running or a clumping type bamboo would be a good choice. A runner would do everything in its power to expand outward in all directions, likely into the neighbors yard. Also there really isn't enough room for a barrier either as you would want access behind the barrier for rhizome maintenance. A clumper would eventually (probably pretty quickly in that area) also expand beyond those tight confines though not as aggressively. If the neighbor didn't mind having half of the clump of a clumping bamboo on their side of the fence, it might be ok'ish. A clumper might also damage or move the brick and concrete next to it depending on how confined it is and how much mass the brick and/or concrete has.

Agree, no where near big enough space.
