>>936346 Yep. not 100% sure with bamboo, but wood bends a lot easier with heat and moisture, green will help but may still need to heat bend. Bend it farther than it needs to be, it WILL try to straighten out some. So if you bend it into a 180 degree curve, it will straighten out to a 140 degree or 90 degree or something.
Also, it would be much easier to setup the board runners along the side and stake them to the ground, then bend and nail the bamboo hoops in place on the inside of the boards. It doesn't matter if they're trying to straighten out as long as they can't pull out the stakes holding the boards down.
Heat. If you heat bamboo over a certain point, it will go from springy to very pliable and will hold the shape as it cools. Use a heat gun. The change is pretty sudden so you'll know when its hot enough.
