The Q&A Archives: how do I get rid of a yucca?

Question: I have a yucca in my front yard that is taking over and ruining a walkway. How do I get rid of it?

Answer: I'm afraid your best approach would be to dig it up, roots and all. The roots can be difficult to dig, but getting out every last one will keep the Yucca from regrowing. Start by cutting away as much of the plant as you possibly can and then digging down to remove the root mass. Best wishes with your project!
