Need Advice: Removing Evergreen Shrub
Hi I am hoping someone here can give me feedback on what to expect when removing this shrub! We just moved in a year ago. We had smaller ones all along our driveway, several of which were dead. I do not like these shrubs at all so we removed the row of them right away last summer. Our neighbor helped us rip them out w/ his truck and we filled in the holes with soil.
This one is extremely close to our house and is much older. I'm afraid to rip/dig it out because I am sure the root system on this one is very deep and I don't want to destroy the garden bed or anything close to the house.
It has about 3-4 large canes at the base that you can't see in the picture. I was wondering if I took a saw and cut each of the canes down to the base of the ground if it would come back?
I feel like that's my best bet but I don't want to cut this thing down and just have it grow right back. I'd like to plant something else next summer if possible.
Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions!
