Bamboo becomes a promising engineering material widely utilized for constructions. It is likely a composite material with fibred reinforcement in one direction to make its good flexural strength. Bamboo has been traditionally made use for structural components. Recently, the applications of bamboo for earthwork constructions are reported both experimental and real project. Pile foundations for houses, bamboo pile and nail for slope stability, foundation grid for embankment, and bamboo pile-mattress for railway and reclamation project are among others of the application. This paper discusses the use of bamboo for earthwork construction. Particular discussion is addressed to bamboo pile-mattress that successfully installed for various project in Indonesia. The appropriate field characteristic for bamboo application is specified. The design step and theoretical based are discussed as well.
