" We Love our Bamboo! After Katrina, we looked at different fencing materials, and knew we wanted something long lasting and durable. And we knew the strength of Bamboo from visiting the caribbean for years. So we sought to build our fence of Bamboo. Nola Bamboo provided a us a beautiful product, and to our delight, after returning from Hurricane Isaac, we were happy to see our Bamboo fence of 2 years upright and NO damage, no problems! We love our Bamboo Fence."

" I first saw Nola Bamboo shades in the windows of a Garden District showhouse home. When I asked the owner where she'd gotten them she was delighted to recommend Mike and his work. Now that I have NOLA Bamboo
shades throughout my house, I can say that working with Mike was a pleasure and the blinds are well-made, tasteful and beautiful!"

" New Orleans Bamboo is a great store with totally green products and good prices. Mike is very helpful with installation and finishing tips for all his products, whether flooring, plywood, counter tops, fencing or you name it"

" Exquisite natural fiber shades I bought from Mike Ward are precisely made and constructed and, best of all, filter the sunlight just so. It doesn't take much more than those simple shades to convert a room from ordinary to sensational. Not only did Mike measure the windows to perfection, he provided the extra service of installing them for us. Everything was just as it should be. And then there is the bamboo gate and fence Mike built onsite for my garden. The classic Japanese design -- airy but sturdy -- is a couple years old now and just gets prettier and prettier."
" I have been a customer of New Orleans Bamboo since it opened in 2007. It is clear that owner Mike Ward is committed to and very knowledgeable about sustainable building and design products. I will keep going back, because I know the products are carefully chosen for their high quality and the service is exceptional. I always know what Iím getting and, that if I have any questions or issues, there is a knowledgeable person there to help me. I have purchased many items there, including dual flush toilets, bamboo fencing, building materials and household bamboo items and I have been very pleased with all of them. Iíve recommended New Orleans Bamboo to a number of friends and all have been pleased as well with the beautiful design options and service. I will continue to recommend them and Iím looking forward to buying my rainwater catchment system there next!

" Custom designed and installed by Mike Ward of NOLA Bamboo, the two-barrel 100-gallon rainwater catchment system in our childrenís Discovery Garden is inviting and easy for children to use. Kids of all ages are able to fill their watering cans to water nearby plants and learn important lessons on the benefits of rainwater harvesting and water conservation. Beyond the practical and learning applications, the rain barrels fit in perfectly with the design aesthetic of our historic house museum and garden. Mikeís enthusiasm for rainwater harvesting is infectious, and his knowledge, skill and attention to detail are those of a master craftsman. He has been a great mentor!
