|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.
