To help pull out Scotch Broom: The City has weed wrenches available for loan. These are great for pulling out broom plants that are too big to pull by hand. They come in three sizes - the medium size is usually the best option. Ask at City Hall. And spring time, when the ground is still moist, is the best time to pull broom. Check the Weeds in Yachats page for pictures showing how to use the weed wrench.
