The Q&A Archives: How To Get Rid Of Raspberry Bushes

Question: How do I get rid of (black) raspberry bushes? They've been here at least since 1963, spread like crazy. We haven't picked the fruit the past few years & as a result (I think) the fruit is not as good, big, juicy, etc. as it used to be. Help! They're overtaking us!

Answer: Brambles can be difficult to eradicate. You can try digging them out and repeatedly mowing them off short, but in the end you may decide it is a case for using an herbicide containing glyphosate. Take time to read and follow the label instructions carefully and be sure to use the formulation for brush.
