- Run the lawn mower around the border to thin it and remove the leaves. Doing so exposes the vines and makes it easier to see what to cut and pull.
- Use a pair of sturdy pruners or clippers to cut the vines at the new edge, disconnecting it from the rest.
- Pull, pull and pull some more. I use a garden claw and hand pruners to cut any vines below the surface if I can’t get the whole thing out.
