If bamboo wasn't so difficult to keep under control, I would totally line my yard with rows of it and pretend I was off on a distant island somewhere. I guess when you are George Vanderbilt and you hire Fredrick Law Olmsted (the same guy who designed Central Park), you aren't so worried about maintenance. This bamboo stand lines the road as you enter the Biltmore Estate. It adds a whimsical effect to the entrance as though you are visiting a castle in a far-off land. And you sort of are.
