Sorry if this is repetitive but I’m not sure my first posting went through. I’m a middle school teacher involved in developing the inner courtyard at my school into an Asian-inspired garden that will require structures like benches, planters, pergolas and a pagoda. I was hoping to use Cali lumboo for the benches but am hesitant since reading the bad report it got on this site. We want to use sustainable resources like lumboo. Does anyone know of an alternative to lumboo, or has anyone had a good experience with it?
