Create a Bamboo Pergola/ Arbor for $10!
I do not have step by step but the first thing you need to do is watch Youtube videos on clive hitch and square lashing. These are what we used to put the bamboo together.
I have always thought about creating something out of bamboo but never had the chance until now. The bamboo was just cut down on a couple days ago so it is still green and very workable. The bamboo will dry light brown and be almost indestructible. You may have to tighten the rope after it dries in a month and the bamboo will last a very long time.
NOTE: to avoid any rooting-it would not bad idea to spray a sealer like flex seal or other rubber coating to stop it from rooting if you use it fresh cut.

Lol! I could totally picture you trying to balance the side at the right height to get it tied together! I find myself getting very creative when in a pickle, as well!!
I’m going to try my hand at your technique building a chicken ladder!
I have TONS of bamboo in my back yard! Horribly invasive, although mine were planted on purpose...🤷♀️🤷♀️
