The New Project link of our website enables you to create a new project, assign it a name, and select items for your project from our on-line catalog. You can locate the New Project link on the vertical navigation bar on the left-side of your "My Account" webpage. You have the choice of saving the project information as an estimate for future use or submitting the information as an order to be delivered to your job site.
The estimates and orders for your account are stored within the "Projects" link located in the green horizontal navigation bar. This section of our website enables you to keep track of your projects – whether they are estimates or current/past orders.
- Estimates - This section lists all of your project estimates. By clicking on the Web Estimate # adjacent to the Project Name, you can view, update or print the estimate details. You can also select individual items or all of the items and create an order. If desired, you have the option to contact Bamboo Pipeline to re-price expired estimates.
- Orders - This section lists project orders that are in process or have been shipped. By clicking on the Web Order # adjacent to the Project Name, you can view or print the order details.
The Favorites section of our website enables you to select items from the on-line catalog that you use most often and allows you to save them in a Favorites list. By creating a Favorites list, you can save time searching for items and entering quantities when creating future estimates and orders. To add to an existing Favorites list, start a new project, add items as desired, and then save this new list to the Favorites list you wish to append.
If you have a project "in process", there will be a View List icon in the lower left navigation window of the website. From any webpage, you may view your "in process" list by clicking on this icon. By viewing your cart or active list, you can continue to add or edit your current estimate/order. There can only be one (1) estimate or order open at a given moment. An unsaved project must be saved as an estimate or deleted before a new order can be created.

Whenever possible, we encourage scheduling your delivery a few days in advance. The delivery time for your order will be based on the following:
- Time we received your order: We make every effort to deliver your order within 24 hours when requested.
- Special instructions included on the order: You may indicate a specific delivery time by using the Special Instructions box on the order.
- Delivery schedule: If your delivery time is flexible, delivery time will be set when the delivery truck is routed for the next day of deliveries.
We will do our best to accommodate delivery time requests.
If you need to reschedule a delivery, please call our office and speak with one of our Account Specialists.
Most deliveries are made in residential neighborhoods so we try to limit our deliveries to the hours between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. On an exception basis, we can arrange for special day and time deliveries. Call our office and speak with an Account Specialist if you have any special requirements.

Definitely not; by working daily with hundreds of growers, Bamboo Pipeline is the broadest supplier of all kinds of green goods in the United States; Specimen trees down through groundcover and everything in between. We also supply other materials for your landscape project such as irrigation and outdoor lighting.
Long story. But in short, Bamboo Pipeline represents the most innovative combination of both green goods supply and distribution: Bamboo symbolizes trustworthiness, strength, flexibility and resilience; Pipeline symbolizes a system through which something is conducted, especially as a means of supply.
In most cases, we can deliver within 24 hours of receipt of an order. 80% of orders are filled within 72 hours.
When you factor in the total costs of buying including: delivery charges, searching for hard to find items, quality issues and returns (we are the highest quality supplier in the market) etc., the total cost of a Bamboo Pipeline product should be less expensive than your nursery alternatives.
Currently, Bamboo Pipeline serves nearly all of California daily and most of Nevada within 72 hours of receipt of an order. We also will deliver to other points in the Western United States by arrangement.
Bamboo Pipeline serves landscape professionals who require a range of payment options. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards. We also provide C.O.D. (Collect on Delivery) terms. For those with excellent credit history, open Bamboo Pipeline accounts are available.
If an item is not listed on our website, you may identify your needs in the Special Instructions section of your order (or call us directly). The Special Instructions section provides space so that you can provide as much detail about the item as is necessary. Assuming the item is available in the marketplace, we will deliver with the balance of your order. In some unusual cases, you will receive a call from one of our Account Specialists to discuss the range of options available to you for a particularly rare or hard to supply item.
On most items, there is no additional charge for shipping. Items tagged with the "crane" icon may be subject to special handling charges. Sod deliveries less than 1,000 square feet will have shipping charges. Additional freight charges may also apply to deliveries outside of our typically served geographies or where special pest inspection and spray charges are applicable. For deliveries to more remote locations (i.e. Nevada, San Luis Obispo area, Central Valley or Imperial County), a modest additional delivery charge will apply. A $75 delivery fee will be applied to shipments less than $750 within our major delivery markets in both Southern and Northern California.
We currently do not have a minimum order requirement for delivery.
