I just moved too a house and the yard is overgrown with honeysuckle and other vines,trees etc. There are camillies,asayles(sp), english dogwoods,crape martles and roses. Some very nice plants but some of them are starting too die. Should i prune them back or wait. My husband and i have been trying too get the vines out of them and clean underneath. Some of the scrubs are more like trees than scrubs. We would like too save these plants but really need too clean up the yard because we have a 4 year old and are concerned about there being snakes hiding in all the decaying follage. Any advice would be appreciated.
