Q.Getting Rid of Overgrown Rosemary Bush

Anonymous added on March 3, 2011 | Answered

I have rosemary at my new house that the previous owner put in, and right now there are hundreds of bees.  I have two boys (ages 3 and 6) and they wont go outside! It is in a “U-shape” and takes up the whole ground cover area. I would like to get rid of the bush completely but it is so viney. Is there anything I can put on the plant to kill it, and how should I remove the shrub?

Cut the plant down and then when there is only a stump left, paint the fresh cuts with Round-up concentrate to kill the root system. You may have to re-cut the stump and paint again with the Round-up a few times to completely kill the roots.
