snipping, chopping, lopping, and pulling.
These OMG-sized junipers are being cut. Then we will pull out the rest of the plant - roots and all.
My dad planted these junipers and I guess when he died, that last year, mom just let them grow out of control. They are waist high. They basically are a Hotel for Spiders. A couple of years ago, my husband cut them in front, and we had bare branches until this year. I kept wanting to spray paint them green, they looked so bad.
I was patient though.
We have to be careful when we pull the plants out - their roots are wrapped around, our irrigation pipes.
