I couldn't stand the over growth in the front flower bed anymore, and decided that some things must go. Eventually, all of the bushes, the holy tree, the railroad ties, and the sidewalk steps with the railing will be removed, and a new smaller flower bed with updated shrubbery will be replaced. Will also be adding a few brick paver sidewalks as well.
While working, some of the shrub roots just wouldn't come out using the shovel, so I decide to use more drastic measures, like getting the '64 110 out. It took a couple pulls, but the roots finally left go. My wife isn't crazy over the black tire marks on the sidewalk, but she should be grateful that I didn't get the Clorox bottle out, and really spin the tires off.
It's times like this when I wish I still had the farm tractor.
