Hi all. We have some shrubs, maybe a type of holly, along one side of our house that are very old (probably from the 1960s) and ugly. I tend to like to do my own planting and landscape, but these things look like they're going to give us an awful time getting them out of the ground. Anyone know of a company or individual who will pull them out and haul them away? I would prefer that the person/company is professional and really knows what they're doing. The last time we had someone pull out old shrubs they didn't get them completely out.
We're in North Dallas, south of LBJ.

Thanks!

If they are that old they will need to be snatched out. We typically wrap a chain around the base and the other end to truck bumper. This gets roots and all but without knowing the layout of your lot it's hard to say if this would work for you. Just make sure who ever takes them out does more than just cut them off at the base.

Yes, the layout is a problem. It's an enclosed side yard.

Thanks!

We use RMJ Landscapes for all of our landscaping needs. We've had them plant trees, remove shrubs, re-design our flower beds with stone work, and weekly lawn maintenance. We've been using them for the past 8 years and haven't had an issue.
