Bamboo first made its first appearances in the fashion industry, but due to new technology, has been discovered to produce clothing, flooring, furniture, and even medicine. Bamboo has been originally known for its contributions to the Chinese culture but has since been introduced to North America and surrounding regions. It’s a plant that possesses every quality you’d like to see in material for your DIY projects: durability, lightweight, easy to maintain, breathable, environmentally friendly, and 100% all natural.
Palapa Kits - Palapa kits are made of dry palm leaves that have been carefully woven to create thatches. These thatches can then be used in the production of many outdoor structures and landscaping designs. Palapa kits provide a variety of easy DIY projects including umbrellas, huts, wall covers, and more. They generally take 2-6 hours to self-install depending on the project type and size of your finished product. Palapa thatches can withstand excessive heat, water, and old age making it the perfect solution to create your backyard Zen designs.

You may already know that trees are responsible for producing oxygen and improving the overall air quality of the earth. As years go by, the destruction of different plants and trees are causing air pollution, erosion, temperature increases, and the upsurge of plant diseases. The Amazon rainforest, coined as “the lungs of the world” is gradually reducing in size as the need for its plant wildlife is increasing to build homes and make paper, as well as other products. Bamboo is a great plant to eliminate the harmful effects of deforestation by creating a replacement option for trees.
• Bamboo controls soil erosion: Bamboo has a complex root system that allows it to properly maintain soil erosion by acting as a barrier. Its roots are also beneficial to the health of the soil.
• Bamboo forests reproduce quickly: In a traditional forest setting, trees would take over a decade to reproduce after they’ve been cut. Bamboo only takes a maximum of 5 years to grow back and continue helping the environment like they once did.
Some types of bamboo are as hard as steel, creating a durable product to survive through both human and natural interactions. When properly maintained, it could last up to a decade without the need to be replaced. The most popular types of tiki hut and Palapa kit thatches available are:
Palm Thatch - Palm thatches are one of the oldest, most traditional types of thatches. The underside of the palm thatch is always 10 degrees cooler than the weather, providing an optimal amount of shade and relaxation.
Bali Thatch - Bali thatches are the smoothest of all thatches and are recommended for regions with mild winds.
Synthetic Thatch Panels - Synthetic panels are made to appear natural and can last up to 20 years. They are UV resistant, fire retardant, and lightweight enough for roofs.
Are you looking for a his and her backyard retreat? Or a simple bamboo structure to add to your small backyard? The 9 and 12 ft. single pole umbrella products are designed to be locked into your patios, bars, or barbeque islands, or placed directly into the ground. Single pole umbrella kits generally include step by step instructions, main support poles, framing that’s been partially assembled, roof thatches, and hardware.
If you have a large space you’re planning to design, 12 and 14 ft. four pole huts are your best option. To put these measurements into perspective, the length of the average elephant from the shoulder to the toe ranges from 8.2 to 13 ft. tall. Even with their large size, these huts are lightweight, easy to assemble, and portable. 12 and 14 ft. four pole huts present shade and protection for larger table sizes, allowing you to host parties and other gatherings at your own home with a hefty amount of guests. The benefits of this size of pole can range, depending on the thatch material that’s been used.Please note the lodge poles will have color variations due to the fact that it is a natural product. Pinewood poles are know to split at times. All kit diameters are measured from center tip to outer edge x by 2. Example: If measurement is 5 1/2 feet from center tip to outer edge x by 2 then frame would be 11ft. This way you have a 12ft Palapa grass cover over the 11ft frame, then you would have about 12" of overhang around edge. This would be sold as a 12ft kit.
