How Himalayan Blackberry Can Negatively Affect Your Lawn

Upon first hearing the word blackberry, images of pie, smoothies, and other treats come to mind. However, there is a species of blackberry called Himalayan blackberry that is non-native to our state and can have detrimental effects on your lawn and landscaping if left unchecked.

Just like English ivy, Himalayan blackberry grows into thick patches that end up blocking your plants from getting sunlight. This thorny plant also creates a shallow root system that makes soil erosion more likely, especially when it grows along a river or stream.

Himalayan blackberry should not be confused for native blackberries, or trailing blackberries, which do not grow the same way and pose no danger to existing plants. If you aren't sure which type of blackberry you have in your yard, there are some visible differences between the two, which include:

  • Trailing blackberries grow along the ground, not in a thicket
  • Trailing blackberry stems are smooth with very small thorns, whereas Himalayan blackberry stems are reddish with larger thorns

At J&C Lawn Care, the staff provides Himalayan blackberry removal services to ensure these plants stay out of your Portland-area yard.


The Steps We Take to Remove Himalayan Blackberry

To completely remove Himalayan blackberry, it is not enough to just pull up the plants. The roots must be completely removed, otherwise, the plants can quickly grow back and you will find yourself in the same situation you were in before. When you hire us to remove this invasive blackberry, we will come to remove the plants and their root systems. In some cases, we may need to come back a few times to remove the entire invasion if it is a more severe case.
