The Q&A Archives: Yucca removal

Question: Please tell me how I can get rid of yucca plants.. I dig them up.. and they keep coming back!!! Any suggestions??

Answer: Yucca forms a tremedous root system and is incredibly persistent. In my experience digging and redigging and repeated mowing did not work completely, even after decades. Glyphosate applied (and possibly reapplied) according to the label instructions should work. Be sure to use a formulation labeled for tougher weeds and brush rather than the premixed solution for mere grass and weeds.
