(NT) much better approach. thanks
Yew said it!
I get tired of their taking over everything!
They start show themselves just a little bit at a time, and I think, "How nice!" , but before you know it, they've twined themselves and dare you to remove them!
Not being one to hedge, I did a number on my privet a couple of weeks ago while the weather was cool. But now I'm being bamboozled by bamboo! That's how it goes. Get rid of one weed, and another takes it's place.

Bamboo is the worst!
My folk's neighbors planted it and it has sent runners 8-10' into my folks yard which means into my Mom's garden!
Spent most of the day between drizzles tackling the mugwort in my flower gardens. It took over last summer. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
What about yucca?
Yucca doesn't spread as fast as some of those other plants, but it can be really tough to eradicate.
And then there's Kudzu.
I've heard that ...
I'll take your yucca and give you my Queen Ann's Lace
If the yucca is slow growing, that fit's my slow moving style. Queen Ann's Lace (I believe sometimes called "wild carrot") just moves way to fast for my pace.
you are making my day rosy
and sweet smelling. the wild roses are starting to open and the heavy dampness from recent rain keeps their scent lingering that much longer. with all the wind and water the ground is too wet to work, so today is picking up the woods day. adding to the several brush piles I keep for wildlife. they say it won't rain again for at least 15 minutes, so it's back outdoors and wonder what that yellow ball in the west is. thanks again for the fresh air. and I hope your day continues to be oakie-doakie
I've been shearing back her honeysuckle for years
It's behind her fence and grows over a sidewalk making it difficult for folks who walk between the sidewalk and busy roadway. What needs to happen is for these monsters to be removed but I doubt she'll do so as long as I give her free pruning service and no one complains. I cut them back about twice a year but, in the background, I swear I hear the music from ''The Sorcerer's Apprentice'' and see Mickey Mouse chopping up the brooms carrying the water pails...if you remember how that one goes.
Steven, this isn't nice but..............
you could buy a nice big bag of rock salt and put on it like I did when my neighbor planted oleanders on my fence line! After I told her I was allergic to the darn things and that they would tear up my fence!! Which they did! Pulled one of the fence posts right out of the ground!
