Yotsume Gaki 四つ目垣 

Four eyed/Square division fence

With charred support poles as options to reinforce the ends and midpoints for longer fences, these squared division bamboo fences use relatively few bamboo poles and don't take that much labor to assemble. This makes them one the least expensive option for sculpting your landscape and discouraging animals that are larger than the openings.
