that was here when we bought this house last year. It isn't hurting anything right now but it is taking up the only sunny spot in the garden and, well, I think it is ugly and would rather have some nice sun loving perennials there. I know is is considered invasive in some places and by some people so I thought I would ask here what the best way to remove it would be. It is dead and brown so I figured I would dig it all up and send it off with the yard waste tomorrow. Is this good? Will the roots be weaker if I wait longer and do it before stuff starts coming up in spring?
