Advice for removing Rubus pentalobus
In April 2011, I had my lawn removed and front yard contoured and planted with drought-resistant plants. I worked with a landscape designer who came up with all the plants. I was unfamiliar with many of them at the time. Now, into my second summer, I'm thrilled with the results and really love 90% of my plants.
The one I decided I dislike is Rubus pentalobus. I think it's plain ugly. Fortunately, I only have two (not contiguous) and they haven't spread that much--yet. They certainly want to spread! I've been trimming them back around their edges, but think I'm gonna dig them out.
Any pointers for removal?
