Removing privet hedge
We have a hedge that runs the length of our garden, nearest the house is a nice tidy section of privet which gives us privacy all year round. The rest is a mixed bag; some privet, rose of sharon, holly, quince. There is a section pf particularly tatty privet which had been neglected and then hacked back from the sides which I've decided to replace because I want more variety. I've already ordered the bare root plants, a mixture of Hawthorn, Guelder Rose, Bird Cherry etc. My question is what is the best way to remove the existing privet?
