I live in Basildon. I have bushes that I need to remove from the ground. What should I do?
I don’t know the genus of the bush and would like to know how I can remove the ones that are right up to my windows. Deep roots, hardy, but need trimming back as they make a great boundary to my property. Footnote: I’m trying to get 4 metres clearance between the windows and the bushes, please advise. Many thanks G&T

I believe that if you prune them back, then they will quickly regain control, and likely become harder to control. I would recommend digging everything out, completely. Some of this may be able to be done with a shovel, but you may find yourself needing some heavy equipment. You will have to contact someone in your country that can remove shrubs for anything that you can't remove yourself.
