Last weekend, I was feeling inspired to finally rid myself of the Nandina that had been driving me crazy since we first moved in our house. These plants are invasive in the worst way- plus I don't think they're all that attractive, either.
Several hours later, I had just three bushes cut down and hauled away. The ground was so hard that I finally gave up on the roots. In the above picture, you can see the gap I made in hedge on one side of the fence.
So I asked my husband for help digging up the roots. Several hours later, he used the chain saw to cut down every last bush. But the roots are still there. Meaning I can't actually plant anything.
And of course I have several plants waiting in the driveway with no place to go. Doesn't every gardener?
