Hello everybody.This customer wants overgrown area along roadside to be removed. Site is filled with poison ivy, vinca minor and many other weeds . Area is just under 60ft long and 25ft wide. There is a 30+ year old threadleaf maple which has weeds/ivy under it. I would like to use some form of mechanical removal but am concerned about damaging the root system of the maple. It is homeowners prize possesion, one of the pics shows the tree and some of whats growing underneath. Any guess about how long it might take? Should area be sprayed with non-selective herbicide first? After groundcover is removed topsoil will be brought in to level area back to original grade. Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time, Knuckles.
