Kathleen,

Find someone with a stump grinder and have them buzz the whole area down about 8" or so. That will reduce meaningful roots to sawdust and the smallest rootlets shouldn't (famous last words?) have enough gumption to sprout greenery.

If these shrubs were located near a structure, look for someone who has a small 'stumper; some models are very handy in tight spots. The one we have is intermediate, is self-propelled and will fit thru a standard garden gate and will work within inches of a foundation without danger. When we were active in the tree business, DH removed hundreds of "hedgerow" stumps in exactly that way ... first we'd cut the hedge down, then he'd grind the growing area to remove all the evidence.

DP
