Question OT (sorta) Tiki Hut Material

Anybody know where to get the grass skirting that is seen on Tiki Huts? I think this would be a cool addition to the deck I am building. Thanks.

I just go the the uncleared lot across the street with my machete in hand and start chopping away...

But seriously, I wouldn't know how you get a hold of palm frondes in OK.

My wife used to get a mail order catalog from a company that has all kinds of tropical stuff for parties in it. I will try and find one for you. This stuff is not going to be real palm but it will be a lot cheaper.

Here's a couple I researched a while ago:

Roofthatch.com

Nauticaltropical.com

Tropicalshade.net

Africanthatch.com

Safarithatch.com This is an awesome site.

Hope that helps a bit......

My girlfreind has done a couple of them. She used Palmetto Fronds over chicken wire. She said to start from the outside and work to the top. I don't know about Oklahoma, but here in Florida, there is no shortage of Pallmettos. Said it lasts about three years.

They are the greener plants in the picture.

Hey eyezlee if you find a good deal on a tiki roof kit, please let me know! I also just built a deck at the lake house, and a tiki bar would be GREAT! I am in Ks. so we have the same "location" problem!

I'm actually thinking of using the bamboo "fencing" first to give a little privacy on one end. I had no idea this stuff was so high. It will definitely have to wait until cooler weather arrives.
