Our house in East Tennessee has 5 huge pampas grass plants planted right along the foundation on the side of the house.
In between plants 2 and 3 is the heater / air conditioning unit which keeps getting severely overgrown by the adjacent plants.
We cut these plants back at least twice a year resulting in 7 lawn and leaf bags full of mulched up trimmings, cuts, scrapes and 7-8 hours of time.
We would really like to get rid of these plants and put in a nice low flowerbed or landscaping but are unsure how to remove such huge plants that close to the foundation, telephone cables, gas line, water line and electrical fuse box.
We even cut one all the way to the ground last year just hoping that it would die and it came back 7 feet in height just to spite us.
We've even tried the local landscaping companies and none of them will touch the stuff.
Any helpful ideas would be much appreciated.
