Also, gol, it shouldn't take that much water, unless yall are really strict on it there. 

 

Still, a car and rope would be the way to go. <.<

They are, and I wish :P we can't get a car into our garden without a helicopter dropping one in.

Why? :3

It made sense in my head, but now that I think about it, it won't work. Should have said 'Gardenians'. I should stop making jokes right after I wake up.

Really, you only have to get a rope back there. You can have the car on the street with a few pulleys. <.<

It's the country mentality people from the south have. There isn't a place you can't get to with a truck with four wheel drive. Berry bushes, underbrush, the side of a cliff, a lake. You need that tree taken down? Get your truck and a chain. Pesky stump? Truck and chain. Boy sniffin' around your daughter? Truck and chain.

 

That being said, borrow a goat and let him graze. Or whatever Eeyore from Winny the Pooh was. He fucking loves thistles. Maybe that's why he's so sad all the time; it's his primary source of food.

Agreed, but don't forget the southern solutions that involve matches, beer cans, and a shot gun.

That's not so big. >.>

I mean, you might have to do sections so it's not like a hedge row, but still.

True story, there was a willow branch blocking a clear sight through the target range I set up across my pond, I removed it with a shotgun.

Seems like your best options are boiling water and vinegar, possibly salt too.


Because I can...

Gonna need a loooot of vinegar. XD

 

 

Update: Took Spleen's rake advice and got to work. Have established a foothold against the Green Menace. Pulled up what appears to be dead ivy vines. Upon tackling one thick pocket of resistance, I was showered with blackberries. Was forced to retreat after projectiles proved to make me sticky.

 

Will salt the earth I have conquered and return tomorrow.

They grow like weeds here, their vines have the capability to grow roots so they send tendrils along the earth and grow new plants constantly. Effectively they "leap" from place to place and create a network. That's why they're so hard to get rid of. Where there's 1 there's 50 more, no loss. :P

 

e: @Cass, no scratches, just a few mozzy bites and some stickyness from the berries flinging at me. :P

THIS WOULD BE SO MUCH FUN! I need to do this!

Yeah, I agree. I grew up in a small rural farming community but it was pretty hillbilly  southern (sorry) and this was a thing.

 

That reminds me of a story though. Like maybe in 2009, for Earth Day i literally took a small tree sapling from the ditch near our driveway and planted it near the house in our yard (makes no sense, I thought I was doing good I guess). We thought I killed it, it didn't seem to do that well but it didn't die so we left it there. Summer 2011, my dad decided it needed to go because they were tired of going around it with the lawn mower. It wasn't very big, it only grew to about two feet.

 

So he put on the gardening gloves and tried to pull it out, that didn't work. Then he tried chaining it to our abused ride on lawn mower (which was beaten pretty bad, we used it as a four wheeler and took it up dirt roads). That didn't work.

 

So then we took our giant Ford truck onto the lawn, four wheel drive and everything, and chained the tree to that. And just the image of this tiny, wimpy looking two foot thing that was barely a tree being pulled by a giant truck was hysterical. What made it even better was my dad had the gas pedal floored, the truck wasn't moving, the tree wasn't moving, then SNAP. The chain broke and the truck jerks forward. Tree is still there. 

 

Eventually we dug around the soil to loosen the roots and got it out but man that tree did not want to leave.
