Yuccas: Once Trendy, Now Troublesome

Yuccas were a popular landscaping choice for many years, prized for their exotic looks and low maintenance.  However, what was once considered "modern" can turn into a real headache for homeowners.  The extensive root systems of yuccas can wreak havoc on your property, making their removal a necessity in some cases.

The Root of the Problem Yuccas are notorious for their aggressive underground roots. These tenacious root networks can extend several feet deep and outwards, causing damage to:

  • Patios and walkways: Uplifting and cracking concrete or pavers.

  • Fences and walls: Pushing against structures, causing them to bulge or crack.

  • Underground utilities: Damaging pipes and cables.

  • Other plants: Stealing vital water and nutrients from nearby vegetation.

  • Cracked walkways or patios near the yucca.

  • Uneven surfaces or raised areas around the plant.

  • Tilting fences or walls pushing away from the yucca.
