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!

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.
