    Killing Shrubs

    How do I kill out hedge or shrubs. We just bought a house and it has these awful looking shrubs around it. I want to kill them out so I can landscape.. Please help.

    Hi Shelly,
    Congratulations on your new home! Just cut the tops off and dig out the stumps. Add compost to the bed before planting.

    [align=left]Strength is a key factor in getting rid of stumps.* I* use a landscaping bar to assist in leverage and push the stump up.* Dig a little more... chop a little at the roots.. use the bar.. and then it will come out.** [/align]
