The Q&A Archives: remove

Question: how can i remove a bursh, not to replant, The bursh is not so big,and it is at the end of the yard but takes alot of room form the small yard. the bursh has small purple flowers now. I dont know the name of it but the neigborhood has alot of this kind of bursh,and is there a best time to remove? or do you think it is best to call a person for this?

Answer: How difficult a job it is will depend on what kind of bush it is. Some bushes such as azaleas and rhododendrons are shallow rooted (usually only six to eight inches deep) and very easy to dig out by hand. Other shrubs such as lilacs are very deep rooted and would require digging deeper to grub out as much of the root system as possible and also some fairly heavy lifting. (Sometimes large shrubs are literally pulled out with a vehicle and a chain, but this can be disruptive to a small yard.) Without knowing what kind of bush it is makes it a bit difficult to predict. If you think you need help to do the job, try to get several estimates and a sense for how much damage to the lawn and nearby plants there might be. Good luck with your project.
