I work in the midwest, near St. Louis. One of my customers has asked me to "get rid" of 10-12 yuccas, (12"-16" dia.). Experiance from my own property tells me this will not be easy.

Question: After digging/cutting/removal of the plant, should I use a herbicide on the soil (roots, if any) remaining in the hole, backfill, and use a double layer of weed barrier. Nothing else will be planted there and 3"-4" dia. stones cover the entire bed area. Do you think I'll have serious regrowth that I (or the homeowner) can't control with something like Roundup?

Any other thoughts?

Just exploring the possible solutions before I start.....

You could do a pour of sahara if there are no other plants near by. I have used it on bamboo that wouldn't go away. Never had to remove yucca but have heard it is a beast to get rid of good luck.

Prosecutor from lesco directions say to apply at 100% to roots. I would dig down deep as possibly however good luck.

last year I pulled about 15 out. the roots were huge. I put 2 layers of barrier over them, and 4-5" of mulch. Only a few came back, and theres only one spot where every year one comes up, but there so small its easy to get out. I hate yuccas!!!!
