dont we all love pricker bushes?

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by lawnboy82, Apr 19, 2001.

  1. went today to my new storage facility. big deli that is letting me keep my stuff behind the building. gotta do the outdoor maintenance for free though. we started today by clearing an area about 20 x 30 of pricker bushes and vines. then i gotta move about 50+ yards of fill saturday. however i will tell you. sometimes those storage facilities pay off if you pick them right. today was my first day actually doing anything there and already i got 2 tree jobs. one is only cutting a tree down. the other is clearing more pricker bushes and putting in grass. so it should work out nice. but man do i hate those pricker bushes. tearin up your hands and all. how do you guys move them? we use gloves and pitchforks. but then there is the matter of gettin them into the chipper. again, gloves and pitchforks. take care all.

    rent/buy/borrow a w/b bush hog and grind them up first, then rake them up.
    Just an idea. I've never delt with them
